Thanks for the message, I am pleased that I am getting a few responses, Every little bit helps.
Since my posting I have been able to talk to a few Ukranians around my area and they have confirmed exactly what you have mentioned. This has now put some pieces in to place in my huge puzzle. Although I knew my roots were Ukranian, I couldn't figure out why some of my Grandmother's documents indicated Austria/Romania.
If you are interested there is a fairly informated website I came across Re: Chernovtis and Bucovina regarding our ancestors...www.chernovtsi.com
Like you I am a hacker and I have been searching for weeks on anything related to this area. So if you have any questions, perhaps I came help??
In the Chernovtsi region I am looking for any info Re: a town/village/sub-division called "Cuciurul-Mare. Apparently this is exactly where she came from. I did a search on Google (excellent site for genealogy) but nothing that indicates where it is.
Anyway, thanks again for the reply and keep in touch.
