  1. Hi Steve,

    Michael Ostafijczuk was the son of Gregori Ostafijczuk and Josepha Kuczer. He was born on Nov. 11, 1865. Gregori Ostafijczuk was the son of Roman Ostafijczuk and Maria Zinkowski. Josepha Kuczer was the daughter of Basili Kuczer and Angela Sobolewski. Basili Kuczer was born c.1808 based on his age given when he married a second time to Anna Zazulak on June 15, 1873. I do not have a date of death for his first wife.

    Michael Ostafijczuk’s wife Xenia Kamad was born on Feb. 27, 1870, the daughter of Demetri Kamad and Catharine Frondzej. Michael and Xenia were married in Sniatyn on Jan. 31, 1889. Demetri Kamad was the son of Nicolaus Kamad and Anastasia Kryklywec. Catharine Frondzej was the daughter of Elias Frondzej and Anna Burlak.

    Anna Ostafijczuk had two other siblings that I know of: Demetri, b. MAy 10, 1890 and John, b. March 10, 1896.

    Anna Ostafijczuk’s godparents were Theodor Stratijczuk and Anna, wife of Peter Branczko.

    1. Mark,

      Thanks again! I’ll make the changes. How can you read this stuff so well? I’m getting a little better, but it’s still a struggle.

      I found John O.’s record and was working on it a bit yesterday. Your info will make it much easier.
