I would like to know who my maternal great-grandmother married. The story is that his name was Johannis Graceniuk (phonetic spelling) and he was a Jew, who took his wife’s surname to hide the fact that he was a Jew. They were born in Zibranivka.
He became the mayor of the village and lived to be about 95 years old, using the name Johannis Hryhorczuk.
Her name was Olena Hryhorczuk.
