Welcome to the list, Mark. Perhaps I am near one of your relatives, if they
are near Sydney, in Australia.

> I have a very rare surname (Okopny). My grandfather Maksym came from Narayiv
> Ukraine (then Narajow Austria) around 1911. This village is located 60 km
> southeast of L'viv. Between famine, war, forced labor, and deportation, the
> events of the 20th century scattered my family to the wind. I am trying to
> sort thru and pick up the pieces.
> So far I am in email contact with an Okopny in Toronto, London, Poland,
> Moscow, Krasnodar Russia. I have located records of others to Argentina,
> Brazil, and forced resettlement to Australia.
