After going thru LDS Film for your surnames, you might consider making a further inquiry @ Chernivtsi Archives and ask for other metrykal records that might be available. Even better, if there are records, make a trip to the "Land of Beech Trees" and do your own research. Bukovyna is a beautiful area in the Carpathian Mountains. If you like, I can recommend someone as guide and interpreter.

Keep in mind that during WW2 most Jews from this region landed up in Auschwitz concentration camp. Many did not survive. Once you have more names and dates, consider Bad Arolsen Archives in Germany for any possible family survivors that made it out of Auschwitz. You will have to provide names and birth dates. JEWISH COMMUNITY NOVOSELICA and you will find loads of info. Just be careful that you have the correct Novoselytsa (Novoselica) > Bukovyna> Chernivtsi.
There were about 25/30 same-name places in Western Ukraine. Place name translates as NEW SETTLEMENT.
