    It's anything but's a reasonable site post regardless. Not different individuals would really, the way wherein you just did. I'm puzzled that there is an especially monster load of data Escorts Milan about this subject that has been uncovered and you've crushed yourself this time, with an especially titanic store of goliath worth. Kind shows

    Hi Linda, I've used Maxim quite a bit. He found dozens of relatives in the old Greek Catholic church records in Ukraine, sent multiple photos of every page that had a family record, translated the records into English, and sent a Word document containing all the information. His prices were reasonable and he worked fairly quickly -- even during Covid. Just be sure to agree on a fixed price before work starts. He accepts payment via Western Union (or similar) wire services.

    All four of my grandparents were born late 1800s in Austria Hungary.  Today, 3 of their birth locations are near Kosice and Humenne/Michalovce in Eastern Slovakia.  Fourth near Uzhhorod in Zakarpattya Oblast Western Ukraine.

    They settled near Uniontown in Fayette County PA (coal mines) and Monessen in Westmoreland County PA (steel mills).

    I've taken autosomal (non-gender), Y-DNA (paternal only), and mtDNA (maternal only) DNA tests.  Accuracy is 4 generations, 10 generations and 60+ generations, respectively.  DNA is VERY useful since my grandparents left few documents and records.  Also, many errors/confusion in remaining records.

    I am a member of Ancestry, My Heritage, GEDmatch.com, Family Tree, and FamilySearch.org.  Latter is run by LDS (Mormon Church).  Several hours each week LDS opens Family History Centers (FHC) to the public.  They allow access to their computers and many LDS genealogy subscriptions.  Staffers helpful.  If you visit, take a USB drive to download important findings.

    I belong to Polish Genealogy Society of America, Czechoslovakia Genealogy Society International, and several local genealogy organizations in the USA.

    I'm an avid researcher.  Willing to collaborate with DNA cousins, and others possibly connected to me by surname and/or geography.

    Re: Waszczyszyn

    If they are Greek Catholic, you will need to view these online records at familysearch.org:


    On a random search, I did see the surname in the later death records.

    You will have to be signed in to familysearch.org to view the recocrds.  If you don't have an account, you can create one (free).

    There is also Lucachick family that settled in Bramble, Minnesota.  Google Bramble, Minnesota for more information. I don't have very good contact information for the Lucachick family, but I do for the Leschak family.  Contact me if you want to connect with them.  kvar121@gmail.com

    There is a Leschak family here in Minnesota.  They are from the Iron Range.  I can't remember the village they are from, but it is in Southern Poland - Lemko area.

    I am doing a little research for my wife's side of the family. It seems according to census records and other documents that I have found they all claim to be from Galicia, which is a pretty big place :) 

    The first surname is Leschak but I have seen it spelled Lesczak and even Loschock. 

    The second surname is Lukachik. One member of the family's given name shows up in records as Humphrey and Onufer. I am not familiar with the name Onufer. I am assuming it is a variant of Onuphrey?

    If anyone is familiar with these surnames please let me know if you have any idea what villages they come from so I can try to look for more info regarding them.  Thank you.
