Hello Stella,
In the census:1901 SASKATCHEWAN (#205)

Uretzki Hawrilo -Male- white-Head- Married- unknown birth date- born - 1860- age - 40 -born- Austria- racial-Galician -immigration- 1898-farmer- R Catholic

1911 Census of Saskatchewan- District 216- Saskatoon, Subdistrict 26
Hawrila Oritzka- Male- Head- married- 4-2, 42, 2
age 49- birth- Aug. 1861- Birthplace- Austria- spouse name- Wasalus- immigration year- 1898- Tribal- Rutherian- 1902- year of naturalization- religion- Catholic- farmer - can read and write- Rutherian


Saskatchewan- 1916 census- June 2 1916

District 25- Prince Albert (land- Tsp 42 In range 2 West of the 3rd meridian)Rural 403
Orinzky- Hawrila- head- male- married- 55- born- Galican- religion- Greek Catholic- canadian- immigration- 1898- not naturalized- Canadian- tribal- Galican- can speak English or french? no- language?- Galican-can read and write- ? no- occupation?- farmer- on farm-

so as you can see- in one census it states Roman Cath and the other Greek Cath. One indicates Ukrainian and the other Polish.

- note the various spellings of the name.
-in the book he is listed as Hawrylo Oricy. They state Ukrainians from Galicia but I know that part of galicia had Polish as well and my grandfather always stated he was Polish.
- GGfather died in 1927 or thereabouts due to land title change to his wife but I haven't got a death cert.
- I haven't found any naturalization and the census indicates he didn't.

- Some of the children died when young so didn't marry and I did find out what I did from one sons details.

Thanks for your suggestions- kim
