Hello I think that I may be of some assistance, although given that you posted your message in 2004 you may have already found this out on your own.Here goes...In 1911 (possibly March 11) Teodor Moldovan (born 14 February 1963 in Cernauti - a.k.a. Czernowitz, Chernivtsi, Cernivci, etc. - Southern Bucovina; died 8 February 1951 in Montreal) boarded a ship in London (according to my grandmother's records the ship was called the SS Cairnino, but I have been unable to substantiate that) bound for Canada.You are correct, by the way, to presume that Cernauti is now part of the Ukraine, as it was part of Romania from the end of the Autro-Hungarian Empire until 1940, when it was annexed by the USSR and became a part of the Ukraine. See http://www.fp.ucalgary.ca/schnell/Bucovina.htmhttp://www.fp.ucalgary.ca/schnell/Bucovina.htm as it has a brief blurb on the history of the area and it also includes a picture of Cernauti circa 1910, around the time that Teodor left.I am unsure of the port of entry where he arrived, but I suspect it was either Halifax or Quebec City.He was joined in 1913 by his wife (Domenica Rowsoy - unsure of spelling), his two sons (Mihai and Petre) and his daughter (Raveca).Teodor and Domenica had married in June 1888.They arrived on the SS Frankfurt which left from somewhere in Germany and arrived in Portland, Maine, and entered Canada from there. I suspect that your great grandfather Petre is the brother of my great grandfather Mihai.Mihai, known as Michael in Canada, married a French Canadian woman from a small community called Cap-St-Ignace, Quebec - my great grandmother - whom he met in Quebec City.They settled in Montreal and had several children, among them my grandmother, Dora Moldovan.My father still remembers a few things about Teodor (his great grandfather, my great-great-grandfather) despite the fact that he was about 6 or 7 years old when Teodor died.His grandchildren all called him something that sounds like "shunna", and my dad thinks that Teodor may have suffered from epilepsy because he remembers his "shunna" having a seizure.Perhaps those clues might strike a chord with you as well.
I hope that this has been helpful.If your local library has old newspapers on microfiche you will be interested in the obituaries section of La Presse for Friday, 9 February, 1951 (Moldovan, Theodore), and for Friday 13 September 1929 (Moldovan, Dominica).I am unable to access my Family Tree program on my computer right now, so I can't find any other details at the moment but I'll keep looking.I am going from my handwritten notes.At the bottom of one of these pages I have written myself the note "Delia and Peter".I am not sure what I was trying to tell myself but if the name "Delia" means anything to you perhaps you can solve the mystery for me.
By the way, I will very likely be visiting the Archives in the near future to try and get a look at the passenger lists for the ships that I referred to earlier.If you want, I'll keep you posted if I find out anything new.
