Hrychko transfer

My father was 9 years in Argentina and earned a little. Came home and bought a little bit of land. With a hand saw, he cut trees for new house and all was left behind in Poland. In June 1946 Polish chased us but Ukrainian partisans (bandits) didn't let us in. We hid in sand. Then Polish Army came and chased us again and those who were able to pack up wagons again went back to Komancza. The Army put us in wagons and drove us to Ukraine. Since our houses burned when bombs fell during war, we didn't have documents. We were placed in houses that didn't have doors or windows so we covered them with straw. We had trouble going to gather food for there wasn't anything to eat for us or the cow.

    •2/17/05 I would enjoy any assistance available on searching for the family Hryckowian. Although my great-grandparents were Ukrainian Catholic, I believe that they may have resided in either: Bereska, Krosno, or Sanok. My great-grandfather was born about 1868 in Galicia, Ukraine. His name was Josef Hryckowian and his wife, Katherine Hohla, was born in 1871. Any help in locating these people's records would be greatly-greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Eric Ryscovyan

    This is what I know of my grandmother, Mary Huczko from Roberta Hutczko, from RCB death cert. Mary Hutsko ?? Mary (H) Barton, DOB 1893, born in Kiev, Ukraine, They both lived on farms ROBERT AMP
