I have to tell you the nature of this family relation - my dad was adopted and this is his biological family. A lot of the older family members who would have remembered are passed away now, and we did not meet them before they died. They seemed eager to blend in here, and names were very Canadianized through the generations. I am basically left with records found online and a small description of the family from a distant relative and that's it! There is no one to ask, no family names that ring a bell...
"Prokop" and "Rapko" look fairly similar... Canadian officials really misspelled Ukrainian names and words horribly, I can imagine they might confuse the two, especially since Danielo's passenger manifest shows he was illiterate.
Wow these maps you sent are so detailed! I found a "Michajlowka", "Moskalewko", "Medysowka" (Medisovka, Menisofka?) near Ternopil...
Actually Medysowka sounds like a pretty good candidate! Imagine a Ukrainian immigrant, saying "Medysowka" to an English Canadian official.. Menisofka? Medysowka is just south of east of Ternopil.
What do you think?
I have not been able to locate Any's passenger manifest. I don;t know anything about her, really. Her maiden surname was Benzig/Benzik/Bendziuk, supposedly she was from Ternopil too, but I thought I'd focus on Koszlaks first! I also thought Anna Kit could have been my Any, but it doesn't seem so...
