I am having trouble researching the Yaremczuk family of New York because they had a habit of changing their names & kept many family secrets.
Because Yaremczuk, or Jaremczuk, means "Son of Jarema (Jerome)," among other interpretations, I wondered if this family that emigrated from Galicjia to New York, New York between 1908 and 1912, could be related to or once used Jarema as their surnames.
I know the father, Walter or Waclaw, had a wife probably named Francis, or Francizka, who gave birth to a Peter/Patrick (1916), Helen (1921), Josephine (1918), and Frank (1925) before her untimely death in abt 1929. Her maiden name was Gluck.
After the mom's death, the kids were sent to live with different relatives upstate in Paris/Clayville, and in Long Island, and maybe in Deferiet/Carthage. The kids changed their last names to Remchik or married names thereafter as well.
The Remchiks/Yaremczuks/Jaremczuks are somehow related to the Vojciks of Clayville and also the Wojcik-Powells/Powelczuks of Deferiet.
If anyone has any suggestions or connections, the help is greatly appreciated.
I have no records or Walter or Francis; only 2 on Josephine & Frank, and 1 on Peter/Patrick.
