Michalina Ostapczuk Story

Furmaniuks in the 1700's

This is all sorts of links and other things that we found out about the family whereabouts, and everything else that we didn't know where to put it.

  • Wojiech Furmaniuk (great-grandfather of the author of this site).
  • The name Furmaniuk is an occupation name meaning "coach driver." You can find this in any Polish dictionary. The -IUK ending indicates a Ukrainian root, but as with all origins in the part of Eastern Europe, it is complicated by history. The region we've traced the name to, Zbaraz, outside of Ternopil is currently in the Ukraine, and near the village of Bazarzynce. Prior to the Second World War it was in Poland. Prior to the First World War it was in the province of Galicia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
  • Galicia used to be here on the maps of Europe prior to World War I.

Married: Constantinum Ostapczuk, single man, and Helenam Nawrocka, virgin (ahem - more literally, single woman) of (the other side of?) Zbaraz (could be a river - maybe the "tracks"? And Elia Baranowski and Paulo Ozymczuck of the villageof Eadem are maid of honor and best man (witnesses).

[Looks like] Regina Agnes is the legitimate daughter of her father Simonis and mother Regina Furmaniukow. And that Augustyriuk and Hedvidge Furmaniczka from Tarasowka are godparents(?) Could be grandparents, but I think it's godparents.
