Thank you so much for your info. Thank you!!! I do believe the information in the Cook Book is from info one of my aunt's had; she was born while they were still in Russia/Ukraine. I think her granddaughter got the information from Lena, (my aunt), and Lena's daughter(s). So I think the information in the Cookbook is pretty accurate, but I wondered if some of the names would be different.
I do believe that Nick and Dorothy were married while still in Russia. Although because of the religious differences in the country would their marriage have been registered/licensed?
I wondered what the names would be like in Russian or Ukrainian. Thank you for letting me know the names.
Interesting too that you mentioned about the Cossacks.The area my grandparents lived in ND had many other immigrants from the same area, and the school mascot up there is the Cossack.
