My Grandfather was from white russia. His village of Ostrow or Ostrowa was supposed to be near Kobryn but I can not find the village. Can anyone help? His name was Clemente Kreczko.

Hannia: The name of your ancestral village is OSTROVO (coordinates 52.17N-24.14E). It is appx 7.3 miles NW of Kobryn, the district center town. Nearby villages are Matsy, Strigovo, Shipovichi, Khutsi, Batchi, Andronovo, Stolpy and Tevli. The village is too small/less than 500 people to have its own post ofc. The filial post ofc is c/o Strigovo (zip code 225871). Consider writing a letter to the Village Administrator (Golova Silskoji Rady) and making an inquiry re any surviving relatives still residing in the village. Using Russian for communication is ideal. Given general village economics, purchase & send an intl postal coupon along w/your inquiry. These can be purchased at your local post ofc.

Visited your website and thought you might want to add this re your GGrandmother's ancestral village.
From late 18th century to 1919 wies/village Cewkow (Polish name) was predominantly a Ruthenian/Ukrainian village w/its own Greek Catholic Church. Cieszanow was the administrative district and Lubaczow was the judicial/tax district. The filial Roman Catholic Church for the Polish villagers was in Dzikow Stary. Cewkow was in the Galicia
Province, administered by ethnic Poles for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1919 Galicia came under Reconstituted Poland, which had been a non-geopolitical entity for the prior 125 yrs. In the late 40's many of the ethnic Ukrainians were deported to the Ukraine SSR or to the formerly German occupied Polish territories like Warclaw.

I am looking for any of my family with the name Melnik. My father was born in Moldova 8th November, 1925. He had a brother Vasile and cousins Petrushka and Nicholai. His father's name was Maxim and I think his mother was called Anna. He lived with his aunt and uncle but fled his home,the Russians took their farm and land. I think he was from Fazouka Resina. He came to England in 1947. He died 31st December, 2005. His aunt and female cousin were taken to Siberia. Any information would be appreciated.

Hannia: You have your geography confused. Moldova is hundreds of miles due south of Belarus.
Moldova today abuts Romania and Ukraine. When Father was born, Moldova belonged to Romania.
World InfoZone - Moldova Information - Page 2
10 miles due west of REZINA/Resina one can locate FUZAUCA/FUZOVKA/Fazouka
In 1925 village Fazouka was in the Resina district. Today Fuzauca is in Raionul (district) Soldanesti > Moldova. Latest zip code is 7220???

With reference to my last posting. I now realise that the village is named Bor-Dubenetsky and is not listed on the map. Can anyone give me some history on it?
Thank you from Canada

I know a family from the village of Bor-Dubenets which is about 25km. from Stolin. The map shows a village (or town) named Dubenets close to Stolin. Can anyone tell me if this is the same village, and if so what happened to the word Bor? Thank you.
