I am seeking any family information on my Great Grandfather, Elie Ravliuk. I know that he was born in 1864 in Bukovina. I do not know if he had any brothers or sisters. He married Domnica Hauca around 1885. They had four children, Nikolai, Maria, Anita and Ioana. Domnica died in Alberta, Canada in 1901. Elie was re-married soon after to Maria Badychel. Did they have any children together? The whereabouts of my grandfather's three sisters has been a mystery to our family.It was thought that they all ended up in the United States.
There are many spellings of the surname. We are now Rawlake, but some of the spellings are Rvluk, Ravliuk, Rawliuk,Rawlink.
Anyone with any information, I would love to hear from you.
