you ever wanted to have more information about your ancestors? What
was their life like in Ukraine or Canada, what was their profession,
what were their achievements, and where did they come from? Most
people, especially as they grow older, have had these thoughts but
do not know where to start their search. Some think that there are
no records around, for them to search, especially if their ancestor’s
village was destroyed during WW I and II.
there is hope for people in these situations. First, there are Archives
in Ukraine which have opened up to the public following the creation
of the new Ukrainian state. Second, there is an organization for
those interested in finding their Ukrainian roots, here in Toronto,
called the Toronto Ukrainian Genealogical Group (TUGG).
operates out of the St Vladimir Institute, which is located at 620
Spadina Avenue, in Toronto.
provides lectures, guidance, assistance and instructions to its members.
It undertakes research in the fields of Ukrainian genealogy and upon
completion of such research, makes it known to the participants.
is a non-profit cultural and educational organization consisting
of persons interested in tracing their ancestors, locating missing
relatives, finding the origin and meaning of their surnames and gaining
an overall knowledge of Ukrainian genealogy, heraldry, culture, ethnicity,
history and geography,

genealogy it is also assembling and maintaining a library of related
publications. TUGG also networks with other genealogy groups.

“Genealogy is a fascinating and rewarding field of research, which involves
working like a detective. Our search for our roots gives us a window on our place
in the world. If we do more than the basic list it can be interesting to ourselves
and to our children and grandchildren. I believe that every person, every parent,
should have at least a brief biographical outline to pass on to our children
or our community.” -
