at the automated genealogy site if you put in the surname and then look at alternate spellings and click on them, then merge, it will bring up several names with similar spelling. There is a Parasko and Paraska, one in Gimli and the other in Gilbert Plains. There are also a Simon, Stefan, Symon. You can also check for names that could be mispelled by clicking on Selkirk and then on the starting letter of the surname and look for all the spellings in that way. It can be time consuming but it is important to realize that the enumerators often spelled names as they sounded as many immigrants didn't speak or write English. I have friends from both Gimli and Gilbert Plains and it was not unusual for younger immigrants to change to more common first names. As far as I know Gimli still celebrates its Ukrainian culture so contacting the local library may be something to consider.

Hello,

I stumbled upon this forum after doing some research about my family history! I realize this post is years old. However, I thought i'd introduce myself and help if I could... I am the great granddaughter of Nick Basaraba and Annie Kuz. If you think I could provide any information helpful to you.

Hello and a very warm welcome to RootsChat  :)

I am not related. I just would like to tell you that you should remove your email address from this very public website to prevent spammers from accessing it. There is a private message (PM) system here that you can use to exchange emails and other private info. You need to make 3 posts to use this system.....just to say "Hello" a couple of times would suffice. To delete the email click on modify on the post, delete it, then click save.

A bit about guidelines for posting here...
