Just wondering if anyone has the correct address to write to the Basillian Fathers in Mundare to make enquiries for birth, wedding, death information?? Has anyone approached them for details previously? I am interested in family information for St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church (Borschiw) which is near Ryley, Holden, Tofield.
Thank you.

Just to note that I did receive a reply to my request to the Basilian Fathers in Mundare (I found a fax number: 780-764-3961), but understandably it took some time, as the priests have many other tasks they are responsible for. I was told that for the parish of Borschiw, deaths were not recorded in the parish books until the middle 1950's. Therefore, my hopes of using those records to find more details on my gt. grandparents did not prove successful. However, I did received some baptismal information, including birthdates, and names of godparents, and a wedding date, so I feel quite fortunate to obtain those pieces of the puzzle. Best wishes to anyone else trying to do the same.

St. John the Baptist Ukr Catholic Church held their 100th Anniversary Jun 8,2003. They published a souvenir booklet which is at the AGS Library and Legislative Library. I have a copy as I attended. I can put you in touch with the man who records Borschiw Cemetery records.
