Looking For Ukrainian Family Tree in

Posted: 26 Jan 2005 5:18PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Can someone help me determine family name? We may be related; its either: Ryscovyan/Hrechkovyan/Hrytsko/Hryhoriy/Hryckovian/Hryckowian/Hritskovian
I am 26 and am seeking information on the following people, who emmigrated from Galicia, Ukraine, (Lviv), during the 1890's, to Pittsburgh, PA. Because their names were Americanized, any assistance in locating the original family name would be greatly appreciated. Alternate spellings of their surnames and villages are belown.
Take Care- Eric


Joseph Ryscovyan Born 1860 to 1868 Died 1947
Father: Jacob

Katherine (Hohla) Ryscovyan Born 1871 to 1875
Parents: Unknown

Alternate Spellings of Surname:

Hrechkovyan (Means Buck-Wheat)
Hrytsko (Means Gregory/George)

Alternate spelling of Village:

I think in modern Ukrainian it would be either:

Berezhok, Lviv region
Berezyno, Lviv region
Berezyna, Lviv region
Berezhnytsia, Lviv regin
Berehy, Lviv region

I think it should have been Brzeziska (Berezhyska or Berezyska in Ukrainian)
