My great grandfather came from the Ukraine. This was Nicoli Tataryn, son of Mickita and Maria. He was born Dec 6, 1871 in the village of Howiliw Malay in the province of Trembolia. Nickoli married Justina, daughter of John and Mary Fedak in 1897. They emigrated to Canada in 1906 with their three sons: Harry, Mike, and John. John is my grandfather.
Nickoli had 2 other brothers: Wasyl and Koyst. Koyst eventually went back to Ukraine.
