Looking for info on Wasyl Bodnaruk and Midora. Her maiden name is Bulechowski, then she married a Mr. Lopaschuk, was widowed and then married my grandfather, Wasyl Bodnaruk. They had 3 children: Wasyl, Jeanne and Mary. Midora's other children are Belle, Carole, Perfiry and Frederick.
Wasyl Bodnaruk's parents were Yatso Bodnaruk and Maria Palehowski. Wasyl Sr. died in 1970 at age 80. He came from Ukraine/Poland?
Thanks

My Grandmothers maiden name was Bodnaruk or Bondaruk and she origanally came from the Ukraine to the United States just before the revolution. I would love to find the family of my Grandmother. Her first name was Doris or Dasha.

Surnames: Bodnaruk, Kuresh
I am searching for information on my grandmother Pearl Kuresh Bodnaruk. Bodnaruk is her surname from a second marriage. She is buried in Drumheller and that's how I found the name Bodnaruk.She had 6 children in her first marriage to John Kuresh who died before she gave birth to twins. They are John, Bill, Ann, Helen, and twins Jack(Harry), and Dorothy. When she married Bodnaruk she had the twins with her and I believe Bodnaruk was a widow and brought children to the marriage as well. I don't know if there was any children from that marriage or not.She ran a store of some kind and a boarding house in Rosedale during the depression.She died in Aug of 1956 and the name Bodnaruk is on her head stone. She is a mystery to me and I would appreciate any information someone might have.
Thanks
L. Winfield

For Teresa,
I found your posting kind of interesting. My grandmother Pearl Kuresh Bodnaruk (see thread) was either married to or living with a man named Bodnaruk before she died. I assumed they were married because his name is on her headstone. All I know about him is that his nickname was Chief. What do you think? Do you know much else about your father or if your grandfather was native?

Surnames: bondaruk
dear L. winfield,

that is interesting indeed. well what i know of my grandfather is he was not born in the states so i know he was from the north somewhere not sure where. my mom told me my dad samuel bondaruk jr. was from alaska. she told me when i was very young he was mongolian. which they do look very native indeed. lately though my mom has forgotten a bit but she said there is a strong possibility my dad could have native in him. I will say that i have had enough people tell me i look native so this is where i get my conclusion. this is the reason why also i felt a connection with the robert bondaruk even though i dont know for sure if he is a relative or not. there was a charlotte bondaruk who passed up in the edmonton area. if you look up a charlotte ann bondaruk maybe some of her family members you would recognize their names. sincerely

My apologies. I haven't been to this board since March.
My grandparents Wasyl and Midora came from Ukraine in approx 1900. Midora Bulechovsky was married to Alexander Lopaschuk and had 4 children - Carol, Perfiry, Bella and Frederick. After Alexander died, Midora married Wasyl and had 4 more children - Wasyl Jr., Elena (? - died at 1 month),
Mary and Jeannie. My grandparents lived in Drumheller most of their lives

Wow! I just read your post and rembered something that my dad had written in his autobiography. My dad is 83 years old. His mom died in 1937. Her name was Midora and she was married to Wasyl Bodnaruk
Here are my dad's words
"Dad knew a widow from his hometown (in the old country) that lived in Saskatchewan (farm) with several kids. Soon after mom's death he brought that woman and her kids out to our place - 2 sons and a daughter older than me and twins - a boy and a girl about 5. I was very angry. .....Then our house burned down and I lost everything. We lived in the chicken house for awhile and then moved back into town and lived in an old Ukrainian hall. I slept in the basement on an old divan. Dad built a kind of restaurant in town, which this woman kind of managed. The two of them didn't get along and eventually dad just left".
Hope this helps,
Jan

Surnames: Bondaruk, Nagacz
I am posting a new message as since the last message is outdated, as I have found out more since it was posted. My grandmother Doris Bondaruk and my grandfather John Nagacz came from a village in Russia. The name of the village was Czechowka or Czisowka maybe Chyzowka. It was spelled many ways on the manifest lists of different family members. The village near there I believe was Sholki, or Cholki.
I would love to find the location of the village that my grandmother came from. If I can locate it maybe I can find some of the family left in the Ukraine. Please write if you know of the village. Thanks!
