      Thank you for your reply. I will check those sites out. The info I have is from the Ellis Island site.
      First Name: Stanislaw
      Last Name: Borodenka
      Ethnicity: Galicia
      Last Place of Residence: Podkamien
      Date of Arrival: Jun 16, 1899
      Age at Arrival:  24y    Gender:  M    Marital Status:  S 
      Ship of Travel: H.H. Meier
      Port of Departure: Bremen
      Manifest Line Number: 0013
      My father has always told me he was from near Tarnopol. Do either of these places, Podkamien or Tarnopol, fall into the area of interest of this Group. It may be that the Galicia_ Poland-Ukraine Group is a better match for me.

      Hi Mitch,

      Thanks for joining the group. I suspect you don’t have specific information relating to your ancestral village – Do you know your grandfathers ancestral village?

       I haven’t heard of the surname before however, I did go to the maxipages link below

      http://maxpages. com/bpbs/ BOBA_thru_ BOZY

      and found the following researcher looking at Borodenko

      Contact Henryk Drewniak

      emdrew@.... pl

      This is certainly worth a look.

      Also joining the Polish Border Surnames site ( see B below)

      And /OR  joining

      http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/Galicia_ Poland-Ukraine/ ?yguid=268000176

      is worth considering.

      Posting a question on either the Polish Border Surnames or the Galicia_Poland_ Ukraine would be a good step forward.

      I recommend that you first undertake some research to confirm your ancestral village(if you are able), and quote this as well when asking questions.

      Hope this is of some assistance

      Good Luck,

      Hello Group
      I'm looking for info on my grand father's family who came from this
      area. Last name was Borodenko or Borodenka. Was changed to Berdinka
      when his kids attended school in this country. I met up with a Bruno
      Borodenko several years ago in Seattle who immigrated here with his
      family from Ukraine .
