Re: [Hostow_Galicia_Village] Ivano Franko - a blacksmiths son
That could be. I just looking at trying to look at facts. Franko bust is in Hostiv. What would motivate him to come to Hostiv? Girls? Blacksmith? Politics? not sure. We may need to find a history detective. But that was good find thanks.

Just noticed on Wikipedia - Ivan Yakovych Franko
"Franko was born in Naguievychi (Ukrainian: Íàãóºâè÷³) in Austrian-controlled eastern Galicia, today part of the Lviv Oblast (province of Ukraine), and was the son of a village blacksmith, of German ancestry".
So he was the son of a blacksmith! This might explain part of how he came to spent so much time with the village backsmith in Hostiv?
