      Thanks, Richard;

      We knew Anastasia Welchko married George Hrib, who was from Ruskie (sp),
      but not her origin. Since she married in 1909 at age 16 (she
      lied about her age) as was the only one of her siblings born in
      Europe, she was the natural starting point. I have struck out thus
      far in finding LDS records as they cut off too early. The fact that
      both villages were displaced only adds to the difficulty in tracing
      the family lines. I know the Hrib family had relatives in Ulic but
      would you have any idea where else the Welchko's might have had
      roots? I intend to order some films tomorrow to begin the search,
      village by village, if necessary.
