I am travelling to the Ukraine this summer. With the help of our group, I found my mother’s paternal family in the village formerly known as Unterscheroutz (German)/ Şerăuţii de Jos (Romanian)/ Долішні Шерівці (Ukrainian). English transliteration: “Dolishni Sherivtsi” / Lower Sherivtsi (English).
My research indicates that this rural village has become part of Chernivtsi. I was wondering if any one knew how I could find out if the original village church/cemetery survived. I have been unable to find anything about it specifically. Any ideas would be welcome.
I am very excited about the trip. We are going with a dance tour that starts in Kiev and ends in Lviv. I have people from my father’s branch still in Konyushkiv near Brody, on the original farm and we have arranged to spend a day there after the tour.
We arrive a few days before the tour starts and depart a few days after, so any suggestions of what to do/see in Kiev or Lviv would also be appreciated.
