Hi, Your Grandmother Catherine/Katherine/Katie WELECHUK nee SKRYPNYK was born in 1895 Bukovinia.
Did she come to Canada 1913 with family or on her own.
Have you searched for Passenger list.
Catherine married John WELECHUK in 1914.
The Marriage Registration - may show the names of both sets of parents including maiden name of the mothers.
Entered Alberta Hospital for the Insane in Ponoka Alberta in 1918.
Do you know the reason she was admitted to hospital?
Have you obtained her Hospital Records.
Don't know if they are made available in Alberta]
In BC - we obtained Hosptial Records from our Provincial Archive for a great aunt on my husbands side. Very Interesting ,informative. There were copies of letters -photographs when she entered hospital - etc.
The records should show - her place of birth, names of her parents - etc -but all depends on information known.
