      Her "Accelina" name is most likely Kalyna in her native community.

      Zalucze nad Czeremoszem, or the Ukrainian place name is Zaluche nad
      Cheremoshem. It was located in Sniatyn district.

      Note there is a Zaluche nad Prutom. This was one located in Kolomyja

      Fred Hoffman can discuss the various surname spellings. Petrovych
      and Romanivna are actually patronymics, not middle names.
