Dear Susan! Maybe your family Yakivchuk really comes from the village Horoshova? Last name Yakivchuk in Horoshova was very common.
I checked the Greek-Catholic Metric books Horoshova for 1890-1907. Expressed birthday two Vasil Yakivchuk.
- April 11, 1894 was born Vasil Yaivchuk (in the metric Basilius Jakiwczuk). His parents: Georgius (son of Joannes and Euphrosina Huska) Parasceva Jaremij (daughter Conradus and Maria) The family lived in Horoshova in house number 55.
