It's very interesting reading your post as most of the names are so familiar to me. It seems many of the people from that area moved to and homesteaded in southern Saskatchewan (Canada) in the early 1900s, as the names Balan (my great-grandmother was Ana Balan), Lavric (my great-grandfather was Gheorghe Lavric), Bandas, Colibaba, Donisan, Husdup, Papuc and Popescu are all family names that I personally know. They all settled in the Elm Springs area and built their own Romanian Orthodox Churches and schools. My father grew up there in the 1930s.
Where would we be able to access to Suceava county archives? When we did our family tree, we relied on our relatives in Romania for the information. We have many relatives still living in the Radauti area, as my grandfather had 3 siblings (as well as his mother) who remained in Romania when he immigrated to Canada with 2 of his brothers and his father. Grandpa's mother (Ana Balan) died sometime during WW1. Her husband died in Canada approx. 1926. (Without the family tree in front of me, I'm not sure offhand about exact dates.) It is possible (maybe) that one of my relatives knows Mariuca Jurovschi. Wouldn't that be something? Also, it is possible that my relatives in Romania remember Ion Jorovschi, as he only left 17 years ago. My cousin left there in 1986 and now lives in the U.S.
Why don't you email me privately? We can discuss the information in more detail that way.
