It’s all Greek to me

My Grandmother, Annie Ostafyczuck, kept her report card from school in Sniatyn. About the only thing I can read on the report card is that her religion is defined as: Greek Catholic. Here’s her report card and a postcard of a Greek Catholic church in Sniatyn – maybe the one she attended.

Sniatyn, Galicia

Both my Paternal Grandparents list their birthplace as: Sniatyn, Galicia which is now a part of Ukraine. My Grandmother goes further and lists her nationality as: Ruthenian. The history of Eastern Europe is quite confusing to me. The names and rulers of various peoples and places changed so often that it’s very difficult to get a handle on what was going on at any given time in the past ( or present for that matter).

Here’s a picture postcard from Sniatyn circa 1910:
