DIDUR & GEDIR & Related Families - Western Land Grants (1870-1930)

Posted: 25 Apr 2006 9:30PM GMT
Classification: Deed
Surnames: Bendzara, Benzara, Bendzera, Benzera, Bugoski, Didur, Gedir or Gedyr, Schufman, Skarra, Serblowski, Sreblowski, Sorokowski, Srokowski, Swidzinski, Yurkowski
My wife has family ancestors who came from Borschiw or Borshchiv and Peremilow regions of Western Ukraine.

They relocated to Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada from about 1902 to 1906 and then they moved on to the Saskatoon area in Saskatchewan in about 1910.

Some of the family surnames included are Bendzera or Benzera, Bendzara or Benzara, Bugoski, Didur, Gedir or Gedyr and Skarra; as well as, Schufman, Serblowski, Sreblowski, Sorokowski, Srokowski, Swidzinski, Yurkowski.

Please feel free to contact me if you feel we might have some connections. What really caught my attention with your post was the name Fedir is close to the name Gedir and Mary Gedir married Joseph Skarra.

You can learn more about the Gedir and Skarra families at this website created by Jay Schufman: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...

Subject: Re: Didur families of Ukraine>Manitoba>Saskatchewan
Surnames: Didur, Gedir, Bendzara, Benzara, Bendzera, Bugoski, Skarra, Serblowski, Sorokowski, Swidzinski

My wife had 3 great uncles and her grandfather who were all brothers named Didur but when her grandfather arrived in Portage La Prairie, MB in 1902; his name was changed or interpretted to Gedir. A brief outline of this Didur - Gedir family is listed below.

Prokop DIDUR (1872 - 1946) b: 1872 in Peremilow, Chortoskow, Galicia near Tamopol, Ukraine d: March 1946 in Peremilow, Chortoskow, Galicia near Tamopol, Ukraine.
Prokop has descendants who are still living in Saskatchewan, Ontario and the Ukraine.

Anges or Angus GEDIR or Enges GEDYR (1878 - 1941) b. 31 Jan 1878 in Peremilow, Austria d. 3 Sep 1941 &.bp. Peterson, SK Angus has many descendants who are still living in Saskatchewan and Ontario.

Leon DIDUR b. He was born near Tamopol, Ukraine and he died somewhere in Manitoba where some of his descendants are still living there.

Paul DIDUR b. He lived & died near Tamopol, Ukraine where some of his descendants are still living there.

The following DIDUR family members were granted land in Western Canada as recorded below:

Perhaps your great grandmother Barbara Didur who married Ignatius (Hnatt) Muzyka (1868 - 1952); and her 3 brothers, John, Alex and Metro Didur are related to Prokop, Leon & Paul Didur and our Angus Didur - Gedir ??

Did your great uncles John, Alex and Metro Didur emigrate to Canada with their sister Barbara Didur ??

We look forward to corresponding with all of the ancestors and descendents of all of the related family surnames listed above anytime.
