Subject: Gorecki Family Members - Chicago Area?

Hi, My grandfather, John Gorecki from Kiev, Ukraine, born October 27, 1925 had a sister named Anna Gorecki (could have been Anne or Ann). They had a younger brother, Walter Gorecki who was killed by a landmine.
My grandfather moved to Canada and has never been able to find his sister. From what he remembers, he thinks she moved to the Chicago area around World War II.
If anyone has any information as to where she may be, or relatives/children and grandchildren of hers, it would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail is: jgorecki$$$
Thank you,
Jonathan Gorecki

Subject: Wasyl and Melania Rusyn (Mike and Millie Russen)

Wasyl and Melania Rusyn (Mike and Millie Russen) Came to America in 1907. Wasyl in October according to stories. Melania supposedly 3 weeks later. They settled in Benld, Illinois, he became a coal miner (in Gillespie, IL) and they had seven beautiful daughters one of whom is still living- my mother Catherine (Katarina) still living (90 on Nov 30. 2007).
I have viewed the passenger manifest for my grandmother at Ellis Island. I believe it to be the real deal as I had always heard the word Galicia. Her record shows she came from Mosty Wielkie. Where is it?
Wasyl died l(ikely) of black lung. Melania was struck and killed by a train. They had raised 7 'strong' girls attending Greek Orthodox Church in Benld.
Have more, but for now, any information about this region so I can understand why they were so driven to take the risk of coming here. Such a brave thing to do? Or was the alternative much worse? I am learning and would like to know what was happening in Mosty Wielke to make them leave their homeland. (My grandfather is stated to be from Austria-Hungary, but I do not as yet know a city of origin).
Thank you.

I've just visited your webpage
My name is Alex Kosyk . I am doing research on my family ancestry and will appreciate any help. I am the grandson of Jozef Kosyk who was born on May 16th 1903 in region of Galica (during the Austro-Hungarian Empire) in the village of Lubieniu Wielkim ( Lubień Wielki or Lubien) in the district of Gródek Jagielloński (now called Horodok) province / territory of Lviv (Lvov, Lwow). The village is located near the current city of Lviv in Ukraine.
Josef Kosyk was the son of Stepan Kosyk (Stefan Kosyk ) and Anna .
Jozef Kosyk emigrated to Argentina, in South America in 1930. He left behind his parents, brothers and sisters.
His older brother Ivan Kosyk (Iwan / Jan / John) emigrated to the USA sometime in the early 1900; provably sometime between 1905 and 1915. He was around ten years older than Jozef.
Thank you for your help. Best regards,

Subject: Korczynski

I am seeking any information on the Korczynski family from Skole, Galica. I have another document that says he was from Korczyn which may be a village in Skole. I am especially interested in any relatives of Wasyl Korczynski who came to the United States in 1912. He changed his name to William Corchinski.
Wasyl Korczynski almost certainly had a brother Teodor Korczynski (Theodore Korczynski) and Wasyl's father was Harry (English for possibly Hrynko or Hirinko or Hyrnko) and his mother was Anne, but I do not know what Anne would translate to. Wasyl's ethnicity was listed as Ruthenian and I understand he spoke German, Russian, Yiddish and Polish.
He may have had a cousin Teodor Berunko in Jersey City, New Jersey and some of Wasyl's family in the United States may have gone to Illinois. If you have any information or know of any Korczynski's in the Skole area please have them contact me.

Subject: Lwow

I am trying to find out information about the village of Kremerowka as my mother was born there in 1932 and had to flee with her family in 1940. I understand the village is no longer in Poland, but the Ukraine and according to my uncle, no longer exists, except for farm land. I am planning my first visit to Poland and would like to visit where my mother was born. Her birth name was Albina Telega, parents John and Mary (Bak). She eventually came to Canada where she met my father Joseph Dutchyn, whose roots where in Turnopal. She died in 1990. I would appreciate any information about Kremerowka.

Subject: Seeking family relatives that lived in Lwow and surrounding towns during the Holocaust

My uncle Samuel RAAB and his sister were both born in Lwow. Samuel was born in June or Dec 16, 1932. The exact date is unknown. My mother Frieda Raab was born Sept 26, 1928
1. Is there any archives which I can contact to find him his exact birth date and the address of the family in Lwow?
2. Is there any street maps of Lwow before 1939? We would like to make a trip to Lwow this May and see if we can locate the family home there?

I am also looking for information regarding LIPMANN family that lived in Boryslaw. Particularly, what happened to little Tusio (Naftali/Tedi) who was approx. 3-5 years old at the time.
His parents were: father - Zygmunt LIPPMAN; mother - Lora (FISCHMAN) LIPPMAN
We think they died between 1940-1941.
Below is what I know about little Tusio.
Tusio was named after his grandfather Naftali Fischman.

In 1941/1942, Aunt Lora sent a letter (by smugglers) to come and take Tusio.
Boryslaw was already under German occupation but there wasn't a ghetto yet.
Tusio had blond hair and could be easily mistaken to be Christian. The little boy would often say “I am Tudek”. The plan was to bring Tusio to a priest who would take care of him, in case anything happened to both parents.
Carola had returned to Krakow and made arrangements with a "False Deutsche" Pole, who was returning to Bielsko, to pay him for taking care of Tusio and smuggling him to Krakow. The situation was urgent but the "False Deutsche" Pole first needed to prepare false papers (from Krakow) for Tusio. By the time the papers were ready, Tusio could no longer be found.
Aunt Erna survived WWII by living in Lwow with Aryan papers. She knew of Lora's plan to hide Tusio with a priest in Boryslaw. After Lwow was liberated, she traveled to Boryslaw to look for Tusio. No one in the town knew what happened to the boy or to the priest – both could not be found. Tusio was about 5 yrs old at the time.
Any help anyone can give me in learning what happened to this family will be GREATLY APPRECIATED.
