thanks Karen, yes I found Johan Kotchan naturalization in the government thingy.  However I can't find George who is my grandfather, nor Marie or Mary Medved, or Medwid, or spelling is the problem, and I didn't look for Iftimia Johan's wife to see when she got naturalized. Her maiden name was Wiksyck.

So Karen, from reading about it, does it name the wife and children or just the number.  I am going to get the information where they lived in Simcoe Ontario at that time and then I might just pay the money to find out what I can.  Thanks again.  I also need to take a picture of the tombstone so that I can verify that he passed away back in 1977.

Hi grammatj8,

I've "moved" you to the Canada board, to attract the attention of our Canada experts.

Good luck :)


grammatj8 and KarenM,

I've deleted the last two posts, as they concern living people.

thanks,

Does anyone know if there is a rootschat for the Ukraine and Russian area. Just a question. Because you guys are all so helpful.

Don't forget that western Ukraine was once part of Poland. Some of your answers might be found there.

Have you tried the passenger lists leaving Britain for Canada? My grandparents came from the Ukraine (Russia then). Their port of departure was Hamburg, but they came to Halifax, Nova Scotia, via Liverpool. For some reason, it was much cheaper than going directly to Halifax or New York from Germany and many Eastern Europeans came to "Amerika" this way.

Here are a couple for Doukhobor relatives that I use:

http://www.doukhobor.org/

ONe half of my relatives came from Chortiza (which is in the Ukraine south of Kiev) there are some passengers list that pertain to that...once I find the link I'll hopefully remember to post it.  Another suggestion is most Mennonite (German ancestoral from Prussia/Ukraine/Russia) relatives are listed somewhat in what's called the G.R.A.M.A (??) you could possibly check your local Mennonite church to help that way.
