Szucs Istvan Cluj Napoca,Budapest. Good afternoon! My name is Istvan Szucs. Im hungarian, but ten years ago I live in this city. I live, work and make studies. I had studies about migrations, minorities and the connections between the public libraries and the science of the informations. My profession is family researcher. I search families in the Territory of the old Hungarian Kingdom, and in Transilvania, in Bukovina, in Moldova. In these territories not only hungarian people were, but many nations too. Sometimes we say, that the Monarchy was a big Pot. It s true! ... and Bukovina was a part of this big Pot! I think it s a good idea, if somebody knows and knowledgeable about the story of his (her) families. If somebody interested looking for roots in Bukovina (Bucowina), do not hesitate! Write me a letter and will found the lost or unknown family member! I wish all best for eberybody and good luck! Sincerely, Istvan Szucs

I am Andrew Peacosh, from British Columbia, Canada. My great grand father was Mikolay (Nick) Peacosh and his wife was Alexandra. Mikolay arrived in Canada in 1904 and his wife followed in 1905. Also an older brother Ivan Peacosh and wife Palina accompanied them. Census records say Mikolay was from Bukovyna and Alexandra was from Galicia. Also my grandmother's parents were Zachary and Wasylina (Belle) Sloychuk. Her brother i believe was Harregje (Harry) Mushanski (born 1883) and wife was Dariynes Mushanski (1893).

I found the history of Bukovina Genealogy fascinating. While my mother is of German decent (Brand), I was researching my wife's Buirkle ancestry and it is clear the surname has changed spelling over the years but that her family was from Wurtenheim-Baden area of Germany. (excuse the spelling) It appears her great great grandfather Johann Freidrich Buerkle emmmigrated to the USA in the late 1850'a and settled in Brooklyn NY and served in an engineering unit in the Civil War. I also appears that many of his ancestors settled in Michigan and Minnesota. We are awaiting my wife's ancestry DNA test that should prove very interesting. Sean Daly Hazle Twp PA

I stumbled onto your site while researching my grandfather George Frehs. I have a letter written by George's mentor in the machinist trade from the village of Alt-Zuczka bei Czernowitz in Bukowina. George worked with Rudolf Schulz of Alt-Zuczka. I wonder if anyone in the Bukowina Society can help me trace George or Mr. Schulz and his business. The letter was written 28 Mai 1904. By the way, my son-is-law is Curtis Zachman, formerly of Ellis, KS, now of Fort Collins, CO. --Bruce Harshberger, Loveland, CO

Teschen/OS angesiedelt. Dort wurde mein Vater, ein gelernter Huf- u. Wagenschmied bei der Reichsbahn zunächst zum Heizer u. dann zum Lokführer ausgebildet. Ich wurde dort Anfang Jan. 1944 geboren, in meiner Geburts-Urkunde steht als Beruf des Vaters: Reichsbahn-Reserve-Lokomotivführer-Anwärter worüber sich die meisten Leute köstlich amüsieren.

For those interested in a visit to Ukrainian half of Bukovina (Chernivtsi Region area) and looking forward to meet your relatives there is a website Bukovina Connection at They are performing genealogical research based on Chernivtsi State Archives metrical books. The same stuff you can find on LDS microfilms, getting in touch with your relatives and making arrangements for your visit and stay. English is almost unknown in the area so you will need the help of a local translator/guide while there. To start a research they need the exact birthplace of the person who emigrated and some data like names, dates of birth and so on. Their email address is the one provided here.

My great-grandparents emigrated from Russia in 1903. They traveled by ship from Hamburg to Nova Scotia and then by train to Winnipeg and down to Lehr, North Dakota. On the document showing their arrival in Canada, someone has written "Bukovinian" by their names and then tallied the number of Russians, "Buk", Syrians, French etc. on the ship. Until I saw this document a few days ago, I did not know we were Bukovinian. Their names were Ilya "Elko" and Agafia Karaush.

Hello! Wonderful site! Lots of valuable and interesting information here! I'm searcing for my great great grandparents...last name Derkacz. My great grandfather was Lukasz Derkacz, who immigrated to Canada in 1907 with his wife Marya and his brother Martin. All the passenger list says is that they were Galician. His estimated year of birth is 1880, so his father may have been born approx 20 years earlier. I don't know how to find where they lived, although most other Derkacz that I see are from Bukovyna, I don't know if that is where they were from or if these other Derkacz are from the same "family". Hope someone out there can help! Carol

As you will appreciate, material is not easy to find in English (although I did find information on my great-grandfatehr on the Bukovina Society web pages). i was hopeful that a member or other interested party might have a moment to read my paper and comment on what I have written. This is indeed an imposition. It seems the e-mail addresses on the web list are not operational so hopefully this post will catch a response or two.. Yours truly, Willow Arune

Hello and thanks fro reading this. I am seeking information on my wife's grandfather who was named Andrei Paicnic who was born around 1903 in Bukovina to a Marie Ozimek (father Jacobus and Francsis Kuna) and a Paicnic. The story is that he was approximately 19 months old when his father Mr Paicnic was killed in a "horrible accident" and his mother remarried an Anton Scovoronski (skowronski) Mr Skowronski then came to America and a short time later Marie and Andrei followed. They said they had lived near Lvov in Bukovina. If there is any one that can provide information on these families it would be greatly appreciated. please Email me with any information you may think might help. These spellings may be different then shown as some of the correctness has been lost over the years. Thank you. Roger Sebring

It is sad to spread in the world the degradings, belittle/ings, false descriptions, this person has done to people with whoom he has NOTHING to do, just to make himself popular.... THE VILLAGE KNOWS THE TRUTH. The Steigerwalds were the soda sellers, NEVER the Kardos Pub owners. We will let this TRUTH be known to all the Web Pages we find. Official Kataster Document awailable to all. The villages Germans were entertaining in the German "Wassa Wirtschaft" and the Hungarians in the Hungarian "Kardos Wirtschaft" - never Steigerwald...

The maternal side of my family has its roots in Paltinossa. I think my great-grandfather's name was Bernard Zerfass, who owned a small homestead in Paltinossa. He had a daughter (my grandmother) named Johanna born 1900. She married a Josef Stolinsky and had 4 daughters, one of them my mother. Under unpleasant circumstances, my mother was forced into a marriage with Rudy Hellmann, a shoemaker in Paltinossa (?). My grandmother, my mother and her sisters left Paltinossa in the 1939/1940 (?) resettlement (Umsiedlung) for Umsiedler Lager #115 in Ebelsberg a.d Traun, near Linz Austria. Some time prior to 1946, my mother divorced Rudy Hellmann and re-married. We emigrated to the New York in 1957. Looking for anyone with similar connections to Paltinossa and Umsiedler Lager #115 in Ebelsberg a.d Traun, Austria.

I am looking for information on the part of my family originally from Radautz,Bukovina. The surnames of my great grandfather and Great grandmother were Osias Fuhrman and Zepora Goldhirsch Fuhrman, born in 1860 and 1863 respectively. They emigrated to the USA about 1890 but we have no information on other family that might have existed and remained in bukovina and perhaps emigrated to other countries or even the USA later on. We know that the nephew of my great grandmother was an author in the USA named Harry Golden. Thanks

Hallo, liebe Freunde aus der Society! Meine Tochter, Sarah Knoblauch, hat es geschafft, sich mit einem selbstgenähten Dirndl für die Wahl der Miss Herbstfest in ihrer Heimatstadt Rosenheim zu qualifizieren. Wir werten das als Zeichen, dass die Familie Knoblauch nach drei Generationen endlich in Bayern Fuß fassen konnte! Sarahs Urgroßeltern Karl und Hertha Knoblauch stammten aus Eisenau im ehemaligen österreichischen Kronland Bukowina! Eine andere Urgroßmutter wuchs in München am Königsplatz auf, und weitere Vorfahren stammen aus dem Bayerichen Wald! Wer dieses fesche Mädel ansehen und durch Abstimmung bis zum 11.8.2012 unterstützen möchte, vielleicht gibt es ja noch Knobläuche, die das tun wollen, kann dies unter tun! Nur das Mädel mit den meisten Stimmen gewinnt! Viele Grüße Renate Penniger,geb. Knoblauch

His last name was either Unchelenko or Onchelenko and he came to America when he was 16 in 1912. If anyone can find anything about this town please email me.

Hallo ! Bin durch Zufall auf diese Seite gestoßen. Da ich mich so langsam mal ernsthaft mit meiner Familiengeschichte auseinandersetzen wollte. Ich bin 36 Jahre alt. Als Kinder wurde uns nicht viel darüber erzählt und ich wurde auch nie richtig damit konfrontiert. Meine Urgroßeltern und meine Großeltern väterlicherseits stammen aus Jakobeni. Mein Urgroßvater hieß Karl Wenzel und ist 21.12.1899 in Jakobeni geboren und war mit Karoline Wenzel geborene Zaharanski geb. 10.04.1902 in Jakobeni, verheiratet. Daraus entstanden die Kinder Anna Wenzel (meine Großmutter) und Erwin Wenzel (beide ebenfalls in Jacobeni geboren). Anna Wenzel heiratete dann Karl Hönig. In den Wirren des 2. Weltkrieges kamen diese dann nach Salzburg und irgendwann nach Deutschland (ins Schwabenland) ! So viel zu meinem Wissen ! Falls irgendjemand was Interessantes in jeder Form (Links/Quellen...) für mich hätte - wäre dankbar !

Hello! I am sending for membership today because the Bukovina Society is likely my best chance to solve a real mystery: My grandfathers Naturalization paperwork says he came from Hliboka, and said he was born in Screth, Austria; he always claimed he was a "German from Austria". He naturalized as John Carl Hartmann but his Certificate of Arrival shows the name Jan Crabski so there was evidently a name change before Naturalization. He said he came with his father as a child of 11-12 to work but didnt want to go back and ran away at age 13. I find the names Michal, 47 and Jan, 16 on a manifest but listed as Grabski-again, from Hliboka, but Polish. I suspect they were using another's identity at the time of passage. We never knew if Grandpa had other relatives here-he apparently never had contact with his family after 1913. He once told family members he was an altar boy in the Catholic Church and lived on a farm. If anyone has any ideas how to straighten this out, I'd love to hear them!

Viktor Pscheidt, ... . Information on the above would be greatly appreciated - i.e. siblings and ancestors. Tried to contact Al using email listed in 1998 newsletter. Unfortunately this email address is no longer active. If you are reading this and know Al's current email, please let me know as I can tell him something about Viktor Pscheidt's parentage. I also have photograph of Viktor Pscheidt and his parents with congregation at his ordination ceremony. Thanks, Ingrid

Thank you so much for making your site free and available to anyone! My grandmother was Emma Mabel Sauer, her father and mother were Fred and Frances (fannie Flaman) Sauer who came to Washington from Saskatchewan. Until your site I did not know anything beyond that. I did know that my grandma Emma was from Regina Saskatchewan and she make the best cabbage rolls in the world she called them "helishkies" this is spelled phonetically because I don't know the true spelling. She graciously taught me how to make them but I never could find this particular preparation outside of Canada, Now I know it came from the immigrants of Bukovina where her parents were both born. She always used to say her parents were born in Austria but she had no more information to give. Again, Thank-you so much!

I wrote a little over a year ago of my connection to the Gaschler family in furstenhal, bukovina. My mother was born there and passed away March 2010. I had several responses but my computer crashed and I lost all contacs. My mother had a cousin Anna in Ellis, Kansas, married to an Eddy Seibel. We visited a few times. Could you all please contact me again? I would really love to research and make more connections.

My name is Ken Yung, I recently joint the Society and I am researching the families on my mothers side.Her father was a Klatt and her mother a Geib and they lived at Strasbourg Saskatchewan. I have traced her family back to Johannes Huber,Margarethe Huber, Nikolau Huber for which I have no births, deaths,etc.I do have an Emeila Huber who was born Mar 5,1906 and died Aug 10,1964. I have located, via internet,an Al Schmidt who has researched the Schmidt family and he mentions these names in his family tree. I am wondering if these same names would be the same people I am looking for. I would be pleased if he would EMail me.The Geib family is a little more elusive and I only have traced back to Jacob Geib born April 6,1892 and know that his father was Heinrich Geib and his mother Katharine Maier/Mayer/Meier, but nothing more. If someone knows anything about the Geib family, i would like to hear from them.

I am George Dechert (57), My old dream was fulfilled last month, as I took a trip in Bukovina, from the source of the river Siret (Hungarian language: Szeret, means love!) by village Rutchka to Suceva along the river. I have been to Storozinetz, Chernowitz, Siret Vadul, Zoristea, Suceva, Kimpulung, Cioconest, and many other places.I was fascinated! The people, the nature, the architect, the spirit of the Monarchy. Next month we'll go back to follow the organization of or big project: A tour along the river Siret from the beginning to end:Galati!! The idea felt me 3 years ago, as I got a book about the El Camino, and I thougt, Why not Siret? " years ago i have been around Bacau City in Moldva (Romania) where a bout 60000 csángo' s (ancient Hungarian)are living, close to the River! The story will be followed later. I had a lot of adventure and I have many photos too. With best regard: George Dechert H-8553. Lovászpatona Kossuth u 44,

My great g'father's name was Josef Runzer and his wife Katherine came to Canada in 1910/11 with a daughter Eva and my g'pa Benjamin(Benafacius sp?). My remaining sources can not remember a village name other than they came from Bukovyna. any info on a village name or great great g'parents names would be great.

Interesting to read names I am familiar with, and which my mother, Anna nee Besler (Bessler, Boesler) Hein, born in Landestreu, Galicia, was familiar with. The names of people I knew in my life, listed also in Bukovina records and in Lndestreu records were: Heuchert, Dressler, Baumunk. Pastor (Karl?) Heuchert and son Pastor Lawrence Heuchert, were friends in Minnesota. Baumunk was the maiden name of my aunt Mrs. Phillip Besler Jr.. in Melville, Canada. Dressler was the name of relatives of my mother in Canada, and a Dressler is in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, along with other Dresslers in Canada. My mother's maiden name was Kendel ( the name also was spelled Kentel in other places). My mother, born in 1895 in Landestreu, at times mentioned "Bukovina" in conversation. I believe she had relatives there. Thank you. Rev, Harold A. Hein, 473 Lowell Dr., South eEgin, Il 60177

Bukovina & Tatrzanka Galicia. When the masses moved to the Americas. they carried common ideas, sent money, letters, etc. to their relatives remaining, encouraging them to come to their new homes. War, hunger, persecution, class separation, land ownership, population, etc. pushed this exodus to extremes. Names altered, spelled different, transposed errors, moved to new area, lived closely. Ancestors follow this pattern, daughters married young, weddings in family customs, religion, huge part. My Grandmother Katarzryna Wojtarowicz born Oct 12 1886, (nee Catherine Cosmic) came from Piatkowa, Poland, near Nowa Saez, Pazemysl area, more than one Piatkowa. Left with Wilks Family 5/31/1906 to Utica NY. She married Frank Kusmis changed to Cosmic or Casmer at the Holy Trinity Polish Church in Utica NY 1907. They moved to Dexter, Jefferson, town of Brownville, New York, he worked at the Sulphite Mill. Frank's fathers name was Mike Yarros, his mother, Magdalene Scofrauski

His listed his last place of residence as "Wolistrowska", Austria. I was told this could be a village in Bukowina/Bukovina called Wola Ostrowska (Galicia, Austria-Hungary 1900). Can anyone tell me where this village is and what major city it is located near? Perhaps it is a small town and not on a map dated 1900.

According to family lore, a family member did not understand the priest when they asked for Frank's last name so it was mistakenly recorded as what sounds like "Kushmish". Frank had four siblings (John, Martin, Michael and a sister, name not known who all settled here in the United States)

Towns of Bojan (Boian) and Modry Kamen keep appearing in my search. So far do not have def. birthplaces for either, and no maiden name for g'mother. Her name Julia, married Jan Turanksy (~1918?) who was POW in Romania during breakup of Austria-Hungarian empire, so we've been told; his trade may be "shoemaker". First he, then she & daughter emigrated to Windsor, ON, Can: she on ship "Empress of Australia" (Nov. 1928) from Cherbourg, FR; his passage unknown so far but before that date. Would appreciate any help with these names: TURANSKY, MAGERKA, MAGIERKI, perhaps even BOLINKSI. All relatives except cousins dead now and no one wanted to speak of "old country", few documents available.

Glad to have discovered this website! I've been researching my family history and seek some information on my great-grandfather and his ancestors: the Remus family. His name was Johann Remus. According to my mother, he settled in Augustendorf, Bukovina, as a young man and there he married Rosina Hoffmann. Don't know all their children's names but these I know: Maria (married Anton Pscheidt, and mother of Karl Viktor Pscheidt), Augustine, Bernhardt, Regina (married a Kuschinski?), Walter or Valentin? and Franz (my grandfather born 1897). Any help as to where Johann came from and who his parents were would be most welcome, as well as his wife Rosina. Would also like to verify if they had other children. Many thanks!

I enjoyed reading a lot of articles on this site, also in German (I don't speak German but "Google translator" has helped me a lot!). I would like to know something more on Italians in Bukowina! Thank you and my best wishes for all! Davide Lamparella P.S. excuse me if my english is not correct Greetings from Italy

His fathers and mothers name are on those papers, along with, I believe, the names of his grandparents. They are in Latin so I am having problems translating. Would information be available through the society? Thank you!

Terrific site. Don't know if it is possible to contact the Siewi Family Tree with some questions.Eduard Petrowitz was my husband's great grandfather. We understood that he was an orphan born on 26 Aug 1861, however, he is listed here with parents Jakob Petrowitz and Katharina Paukner. Their other children seemed to die in infancy. The group sheet only shows four of Eduard's children. My husband's grandmother, Rosalia, was born on 27 July 1891 and emigrated to Canada in 1910.Was this list taken from a 1910 census and that is why she is missing? The other children listed are definately her brother's and sisters. Thank you for your help. Anne

Thank you for a very informative web site. I am tracing the background of my grandfather Adolph Achner born 1880 in Ropcha Bukowina. He graduated from Bern University in 1904 and his dissertation entitled "Falschen Chinarinden" still appears to be available. He emigrated to England became Dr Conrad Adolph Ackner and set up a dental practice in London's Welbeck Street where he continued working until the late 1960's. I believe his father was a farmer in the area and may have been called Heinz Achner

My dad was born in Bukovina in 1929. His parents emigrated to Bukovina years before. He was orphaned by the time he was twelve years old, his mother, then his father dying in the late 1930s. He was then raised by his oldest sister, Hilda. In 1939, he, along with many other Bukovina Germans were declared 'volksdeutsche' by Adolf Hitler and shipped out of the area, to be brought to live within the borders of the Reich. However, they were settled, instead, in Poland. Dad had many stories to tell about his experiences during World War 2. Dad emigrated to the USA in 1952 and settled in Los Angeles for a time. Then he moved to the San Fernando Valley, north of LA. He passed away in 2007.

Aywasowie to Ormianie, którzy przez Czerniowce, Husiatyń przywędrowali do Polski. Wnuk Bazylego, mój pradziadek Franciszek [1862-1940], był burmistrzem Wieliczki. Wiem, że wielu Aywas'ów pozostało na Bukowinie. Szukam informacji na temat wszystkich Aywas'ów. W 1790 nadano im tytuł szlachecki i przydomek Norses. Byli właścicielami dóbr: Ilostów, Stecowa, Krzywotuły Stare. Kilka osób jest pochowanych w miejscowości Śniatyń.

My grandfather Wilhelm Kornelson left his home area "Itzicani" east of Radutz in the early 1880s, then returned to Romania, married and came to Canada in October He settled in Balgonie Saskatchewan in 1889. I am trying to learn if there are records in the Hays area that may indicate that he came to that place in his first venture to America. He worked for the railway while in Kansas.

Here is where we are having problems, Rossler, Rozzler, Roszler. Both itineraries into Port of Baltimore and Ellis Island show different spelling of the last name. My grandfather was born in Moldavia, Austria-Hungary and we go by the last name of Roszler. I can trace my great-grandparents on itineraries to US and where they settle in Steelton, PA but before and after that I can't find anything. If anyone has any information that could help me, I sure would appreciate it.

Hello, I am interested in learning about my family origins in Bukovina. My grandfather's name was Viktor Opitz (maybe originally Opiatz) and he was born in 1881. He considered himself a Ukrainian and spoke the language. He was a tailor by trade and came to the United States via New York between 1900-1910. He married Blanche Dumbrowski from Warsaw, Poland. He told my father that he came from a small town outside of Chernowitz. He sent money home to his father, Pancraty Opitz (Opiatz) to a town called Koropchow (perhaps spelling is not entirely accurate. After that, my trail runs cold. Not much is known. If there is anyone who might have some knowledge about tracing my roots, I'd be greatful. Lynne M. Opitz

My father in law only knew that his mother's maiden name was "Morow" but had been much longer in its original form. After much searching and a good bit of luck, I have found them in the Ellis Island records, arriving together in 1913. Their names were Wanda and Leontine Skomorowska and they were from Gurahumora, Austria. Leontine's son Bruno also arrived in the U.S. at that time. They planned to live with Leontine's older daughter Marie who was mariied to Eduard Tilich a native of Suczawa, Austria.If any of these names or locales are familiar please contact me.

My name is Tim Reidy Jr. My great-grandparents (Gustav Bialy and Matilda Pizak) immigrated from Stupka to Chehalis, Washington. They then moved from Chehalis to Mt. Angel, Oregon. We are just beginning to research their history. We know the piece from Chehalis onward, and have found some info about coming from Stupka, but were unaware of the rest of the history. This site really make everything click. It is interesting to put together vaguely remembrances of cousins in East Germany that my great-Aunt would write to with various nationality claims of Austrian, German, and Romanian. I would love to hear from anyone with info about the Pizak or Bialy family, espacially if they have any info about the family from Stupka.

Hallo, mein Name ist Renate Penninger, geborene Knoblauch. Meine Großeltern,Herta und Karl Knoblauch stammen aus der Bukowina und lebten dort bis 1940. Meine Großmutter ist 1912 geboren, in Eisenau in die Schule gegangen und lebt noch, kann sich aber nur mehr schwer erinnern. Sie sagt aber, die Zeit dort sei ihre beste gewesen. Leider weiß ich viel zu wenig über meine Vorfahren. Mein Großvater hatte eine Schreinerei irgendwo bei Cimpolung. Ich weiß aber keine Adresse. Vielleicht gibt es jemanden, der meine Großeltern gekannt hat und mir weiterhelfen kann. Wir leben jetzt in Bayern in Rosenheim. Ich finde Eure Beiträge sehr interssant!

I’m the son of Martha Wendling 1938, daughter of Jacob (Jakob) Wendling 1907, son of Franz Wendling 1879. I have Franz’s passport showing travel from late 1800’s thru Bukowina and on to America. Family notes remark about his need for a sponsor at Ellis Island in 1910. He sent requests to a cousin in Canada and a non relative Fredrick Wending in Chicago. Only Fredrick replied and thus he came to the US.

I am descended from Jakub Kislinger of Moravia, Czech Republic born in the early 1800s. He sometimes lived in Bukovina per relatives in Czech Republic, and his daughter was married there. We are unable to find records on Jakub in Bukovina. I am trying to tie him to the Kisslingers of Bukovina, and all evidence is that he had relatives there. Some of the Kislingers immigrated from the Bohemian Forest area to Moravia, and were part of the glass industry there. Some immigrated to Bukovina. Any information that would help me on the Kislingers would be helpful. Thanks. Richard Strobel

I am interested in starting my "scherle" family tree. I dont have a lot of information to start from, but here goes. My grand parents were from Bukovina. Their names were Martin Scherle (born dec 5 1896) and Phillipine Scherle (born feb 16 1897). Martin Scherle came to Canada in 1911, and Phillipine Scherle came to Canada in 1912. They were also first cousins. They lived on a farm in Saskatchewan, possibly near Vanguard. patti

I am researching the SCHERLE that are descendants of Johann Michael Schärle (b1650) Hossingen, Balingen, Württemberg. His Great Grandson Konrad Scherle (b1765) migrated to Tereblestie, Bukovina in 1783. Konrad’s descendants lived in Tereblestie, Czernowitz, Illischestie and Hliboka. In the late 1800's and early 1900's many of them came to North America. My great grandparents, Konrad Scherle (b 1854) and his wife (and 1st cousin) Margaretha (Scherle) Mohr (b 1857) came to Canada in 1911 with their daughter Theresia Scherle (b 1890). Konrad died shortly after arriving in Canada either in Waterloo, Ontario or Fairy Hill, Earl Grey or Regina, Saskatchewan. thank You Theresia married (Lutheran Church) a 3rd cousin named Franz (Frank) Scherle (from?) Franz was much older than Theresia, probably born sometime between 1850 and 1880. They had two sons born 1918 and 1919. Franz died sometime before 1930 when Theresia remarried.

Hello, my name is Aleksandar Sajdl. I am looking for information on Seidl family who lived in Bosnia (Sibovska, Polje near Derventa, Bosanski Brod, Slavonski Brod, Vares). I know just a few names. Seidl Gaspar (Kaspar, Caspar) and Rosina Baumann both born between 1870-1900. She was born in Mariahilf (Galicia) and came to Bosnia about 1882. They had several children: Josef, Katharina, Ludmila (born in 1911), Ignatz, and maybe Maria, and another male child. All of them except Ludmila and Ignatz went to Germany (I presume) when the World War II began. Unknown male child became a soldier and never returned home. I have no idea where from did they come (Bukovina or Galicia or even Germany) to Bosnia. Searching for the information I discovered that majority of Seidl families in Serbia and Croatia came from Romania (Banat or Bukovina). Any information regarding these individuals or Seidl last name in Bosnia will be great help. Thank you.

Having "stumbled" over the Bukovina code of arms when searching something totally different, I now find myself with tears in my eyes. Bukovinians in the Americas - I never thought about it. I was born in Stutttgart-Büsnau. My father, Erhard Grünwald, was born in Dorna, my mother Else, nee Renner, came from Czernowitz-Rosch and I grew up in a suburb with streets named Buchenländer Straße, Radautzer Weg.., a suburb built by Bukovinians. Reading names of so many people I know on this site has deeply moved me. Most descendants of Bukovinians in Germany are so well "assimilated" - like myself - that the organizations like "Landmannschaft der Buchenlanddeutschen", in which my parents were deeply involved, are dying out. My parents don't live any more and the bond to the Bukovina doesn't exist any longer - but maybe it does in a way, considering the fact that my eyes water when I read your homepage....

My name is Alexandru Grigorescu and I am the owner of a tour operator in Romania. After doing for years many private tours for people in search of their ancestors we are now thinking of organizing a group tour to Bukovina (both the Romanian and Ukrainian sides) in 2009. In order to match the exact needs of the potential travelers we have the following idea: we will not first write an itinerary and present it, but instead ask the persons interested, which locations they would like to visit and then put an itinerary together based on the feed-back. After having the itinerary a departure date will be also fixed. I think it's a good idea and it will offer to more persons the possibility to visit this very beautiful region full of history and interesting stories and people. Write to us and hopefully we can get a group together.

Recently returned home to Northampton, Massachusetts USA from a wonderful trip to Bukovina, both Romanian and Ukrainian sides. Stayed in Suceava and Chernowitz; traveled to Kisselice where my grandfather was born, Radautz (Radauti) where my mother and grandmother were born and my grandparents were married, and Moldowitza (formerly known to Austrians as Russ Moldowitza) where many family members lived and where I found my great grandmother's gravestone.

Does anyone know the names, Dzuran or Gartner from the Bukovina? My dad was George Dzuran and my mom, Cilli Gartner. They were from the village of Ocna (spelling?). They left in 1937 on a ship sailing to the Caribbean, where they married and I and my siblings were born and raised. My mother was Jewish, and she presumably lost her sister Susi Ehrlich and her two children to the Nazi atrocities. I had heard there was a Peter Dzuran in Pennsylvania but have not been able to find him. Thanks for any info.

My grandfather left for Warsaw (?) on his own in December 1938. My grandmother divorced him in 1942. She was living at that point in Resettlement Camp 16 in Loben, South Poland, for Buchenland Germans. She then moved to Falkenberg/Elsen. Maria had two sisters and at least one brother. On her divorce papers her maiden name is given as Walintski. Can't find anything similar on database however.

He would describe his nationality as Austrian or German, and said he was related somehow to the egyptologist/novelist Georg Ebers.

Meine Mutter Theresia Jekal wurde am 15.01.1924 in Krasna Ilski geboren. Ihre Mutter heisst Justina(geboren 29. September 1899, wahrscheinlich in Krasna Ilski). Die Mutter ist nach der Geburt verstorben (wahrscheinlich 1925 oder 1926.Danach heiratete ihr Vater die Zwillingsschwester Barbara. Die einzige Information, die ich erhalten/gefunden habe, Justina und Barbara sind in Familienblättern als Gaschler und nicht als Gruber eingetragen.Es kann sein, das die Grossmutter mehr als einmal verheiratet gewesen ist. Weiter Geschwister von Justina und Barbara waren/sind Josef, Leon, Adolf und MarieIhr Vater Johann Jekal (geboren am 10. Juli 1896 in Neuhütte / sein Vater war Anton Jekal geboren am 12. Juni 1863 in Neuhütte / seine Mutter Katharina Stadler aus Neuhütte).Wer kann mit weiterhelefen? Besonders wichtig: Wer sind die Eltern von Justina und Barbara Gaschler oder Gruber?Bin für jede Hilfe dankbar. Mit freundlichen Grüssen André Conradi

I love this site! I visit it regularly, hoping that there may be new information on family names. In particular, I'm looking for the family names of Hunceac, ketza and Proskurniak. I can trace my family back to there arrival here in Canada, but prior there is nothing.! If anyone can help, I'd love to here from you!
