Hi Susan!
Congratulations on successfully. We looked Jakivchuk in Borschiv district Ternopil region. It turns, your Yakivchuk comes from the village Serafyntsi - now Gorodenka district Ivano-Frankivsk region. See:

It indicates, in Serafyntsi common surname Jakivchyk (maybe should be Jakivchuk).

Your family probably Greek Catholic. In Ivano-Frankivsk archive is Greek Catholic metric Serafyntsi Birth 1857-1913, marriages 1873-1925, Death1861-1905 .

In the e-mail I sent you a map Serafyntsi, 1925
