      Welcome to the upgrade of Bukovina-Gen: The Bukovina Forum, graciously hosted by the Bukovina Society of the Americas. I’m one of the moderators – former Owner/Moderator of Bukovina-Gen – Beverly Muntain.

      If you have any questions or are unable to figure out how to use the forum, let us know at forum-moderator@bukovinasociety.org. If necessary, I’ll try to get a ‘how to use the forum’ manual up this weekend.

      If you have any suggestions about what you’d like to see here, contact us at that same e-mail address, and we’ll see what we can do.

      Some things to remember:

      1. If you don’t log in (or sign in) to the Forum, you can still see the forum, but you can’t post or reply. Please log in.
      2. Please fill in your User Profile. At least, enter your full name and country. This way, we know you’re not a robot.
      3. Check the Bukovina Forum Rules. If you have questions about what may be appropriate, please contact your moderators at forum-moderator@bukovinasociety.org.
      4. Be nice!

      If you would like to use this Welcome post as a place to introduce yourselves and the surnames you’re researching, please feel free to leave a reply.

      Hi I am Joy Shreyer and my husbands grandfather and grandmother were both born in Sereth Bukovina and imigrated to Canada around 1910.  My husbands father was also born in Sereth before they immigrated when he was only 13.  The grandfathers name was Josef Schreyer/Shreier and his grandmother, who was of Polish descent was Klementina Klementowski. Klementina’s father was Josef Klementowski and his mother was Dorothea Ehreinrich.  We would be delighted if we could make contact with any family members who might still be in Sereth.  Joseph  was born in Sereth in 1857 and Klementina born there in 1863.  Both died in Canada.  Joseph in 1931 in Radway Alberta Canada and Klementina in 1947 in Nanimo British Columbia Canada.

      I was a member of the Yahoo group.  Thanks to everyone responsible for setting up this group.

      My Maternal Great Grandparents – Ewanowich, Bodnaruk, Tkachuk came from Serautii de Jos, which I believe is now part of Chernivtsi.  The other three were all from Galicia.

      It has been a while since I have worked on this branch of the family.  I am hoping to devote more time to it this year I am hoping to go to the Ukraine this summer.

      Hi everyone,

      My family lived in Bukovina for a short time in the late 1700’s/early 1800’s.  I’ll create another post with my family information on it in case anybody recognizes the names.

      The family names I am researching are Schmidt, Presser, Wild, Appel, Mueller and Klein.

      The name Schmidt is pretty common, “Presser”, is probably “Prosser,” a fairly common Bohemian German name that shows up in Bukovina. Appel is found around Radautz, apparently coming from the Palatinate. Wild, Klein, and Müller are also pretty common. Müller is also a common Bohemian German name.

      You are a member of  the BSA, so login and then go to the Genealogy section, and create an account there and start looking for names.
