I am looking for information on my great-grandfather’s family. His name is John (Iwan/Ivan) HYRYK. He was born 04/06/1908 and he immigrated to Canada in 1930. He was the youngest of 5 children: Luczka (Lucas, Luke) Hyryk (b. abt 1893), Maria Hyryk (b. 1902), Henry Hyryk, and Helen Hyryk. Maria and John came to Canada, and we believe Luke went to the USA. The names I have for their possible parents are Semko (Simeon?) Hyryk and Paraskevia/Christina. They were supposedly all born in Mikolajow, Poland. I have only info on John, Maria, and a little bit about Helen. Mainly searching for information on Luke, Henry, and the parents.
Have also come to the conclusion on my own that their surname may have been spelled differently or documented differently (such as Kyryk, Gyryk, etc.)
My paternal and maternal grandparents are from Poland. I need to find their Baptismal certificates to begin a trace...Quest Details
