Surnames: KOM

Hi Again, Taking a Look at the Attestation papers:

John KOM born 1894 - Place of Birth: Russia
At time of Enlistment - May 1916.
lived in Buchanan Saskatchewan
Next of Kin -Anna KOM sister: Born Russia: Bila[Prov]Czortkiew

SELO: {town/village]Bila,Biala. [means white]
RAION:[district]Chortkiv,Chortkiw,Czhortkiw Chortkivskij Czortków Chortkiew
OBLAST:[province] Ternople. Ternopil, Ternopliskam

One has to remember - the history of the area -
Spelling of Place Names. surmames change according to the ruling party at the time.

Chortkiv , http://tapor.ualberta.ca/heritagevillage/district/chortkiv.p...

We also have to remember - here in North America -especially in that time frame - we were not aware how to spell names from other countries - especially Eastern European - then with the accents difficult to determine.
Name on Birth cert - may look different from name on passport/ passenger list -

Not all official papers - Natioanl registration etc - is absolutely correct -especially if there is no correct paperwork - and the person may not desire to offer - absolutely accurate information. People from the area in those days and later - were quite secretive about their former lives
Cheers, Stella
