I was reading the posts and replies here and wanted to write to see if anyone ever came across the spelling Bilan or Bilon. My grandfather, Wasyl Bilan, came to the US from Jezepul, Austria (which was taken over by Poland but he considered himself from Ukraine) in 1909. Some of his papers spelled his name Belon and some spelled it Bilan. His naturalization papers spelled it Bilan, so that is the spelling I have been using. His son, however, chose to spell it Bilon. Wasyl had a brother Michael and John and a sister Olga. Their parents were Hrin Bilan and Theodozia Wowchuk. Any of these name ring a bell?
