Dear Sonia,
I read in your postings about an Ivan Michaluk who had a wife Efrosinia NaZAREWICH.SHE APPARENTLY IMMIGRATED TO Canada with her daughter Nina in 1925.
My Grandfather, John Michaluk(1896-1984)has his birthplace listed as Brody, Austria on his birth certificate.I had heard stories of his father dying and his Mother remarrying(I think someone named Sam Ferris or Ferrance) and immigrating to Canada, living near Edmonton, Alberta in a Ukranian settlement and farming.I had understood that John's father's name was Michael Michaluk and his mother Polly Pahalchuk, but am uncertain. I know there was a step-sister named Nina. She may even still be alive. Last I heard she was living in Canmore, Alberta, if this is the same person. My Grandfather John moved to Canmore as well from near Edmonton, with his young bride Viola Carbol, and they raised 6 children, among them my father Arthur.John was a coal miner.
It just seems there are a lot of similarities in this story. I am unable to find Brody on a map. Does it still exist? Please write if you think there is a connection.
Thank you,
Michele Michaluk

My family is from Brody. It is a town of 25,000, east of L'viv. Radzyvyliv is a smaller town, just further east.

Let me know if you need help finding it.

HI

I think we corresponded back in 2001 on these surnames, when we agreed that we did not have the same family. Have you found anything new on your John Michaluk since then?

My grandfather Ivan Michaluk died in Lutsk, Volyn Oblast in 1937. I have a letter from the Volyn Oblast indicating his death.

Thank you, Steve, I was able to locate it. Can you recommend where to write or e-mail in that area to find records of my Michaluk ancestors?
Thanks,
Michele

I am interested in the Zaks of Radlyvyliv. I am trying to see if there is a connection to the Zaks of Varniai Lithuania. My Great Grandfather Ber Movsha Zacks (born 1853) and his father Iosel first appear in Varniai in 1890 on tax lists. Perhaps they fled Radlyvyliv due to the pogroms of 1880 in Ukraine. Most of the first names on the 1850 Russian revision list for Zaks are the same as in Varniai . My Grandfather Isack born 1902) had 9 siblings. I am going to search for more list for the period 1853 and 1890
