Have you tried searching www.genealogybank.com? I've had a lot of success finding relatives there when I hit a brick wall. They have a really large U.S. newspaper archive that contains hundreds of years of info that can't be found anywhere else. It isn't free but you can sign up for a month trial for a paltry $10 so it's well worth it to give it a try .
How close is Hrytsko, going back to the late 1800s to early 1900s? Possibly my great-grandmother from Wysoczany, Galicia. My family's spelling may not be what your family is currently using since it was so long ago.
I`m looking for relatives from my oldgrandma`s family. I know she had one sister, her birthname is Bjes Margit Persson Lustig, born 6 april 1883, she get married and change her name to Margaret Selberg, and was in the 60 `s living in Seattle, her brothers name was Bjes Hans Persson Lustig, born 20 september 1877, the other brothers name was Bjes Eric Persson Lustig, born 10 april 1840, the last we know is that he moved somewhere to Canada.
They had an other brother who lived like an trapper close to the border USA/Canada, his name was Bjes Anders Persson Lustig, born 8 oct 1870 he comes to USA in 1907. His sister and brothers had came some years before. But he moved back to Sweden when my oldgrandmother be an widow.
They emigrate to USA in the late 1900.
They all is born in Sweden, in an little village they call Orsa, they was living in an place we call for Vångsgärde. If any one in USA know this people please contact me her.
I am seeking more information on my great grandfather Morris KUSHER (b. 1908 - d. 14 October 1952) - especially Morris’ parents of whom I know almost nothing. Morris was born and raised somewhere in Russia along with is parents and his two sisters, Hinda aka “Annie” and Lena, but I don't know in what town/city (ref. family tree generated by Mordecai “Morty” Genn). Morris Kusher worked as an inspector of meat in order to determine if the meat was prepared properly so it can be labeled as “kosher.”
Morris married my great grandmother Shirley CHAROSH (b. 15 April 1905 – d. 11 February 1995), who was also born and raised in Russia, but I do not specifically which town/city. She was a housewife and never worked outside of the house. After Morris died, Shirley remarried under the last name SNYDER. However, I also do not know anything about her parents other than that they were from Russia. I can provide additional information about Shirley if that would help.
Both Morris (14 years old) and Shirley (17 years old) emigrated from Russia to the United States in 1921. Morris was 19 when he married and Shirely was 22 and all three of their kids were born and raised in Brooklyn, New York (ref. 1930 Census for East New York). The Kusher children from the marriage of Morris and Shirley include: Ruth (b. 1925 – d. 12 March 1939), Etta “Yetta” (b. 12 February 1929 – present), and my grandfather Leo (b. 20 June 1931 – present).
Morris, Shirley, and Ruth are all buried in New Montefiore Cemetery, West Babylon, New York.
I also have more information on all three children if that would help.
Although, any information you have on Morris' and Shirley’s birth, parents, or ancestry I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much in advance,

see my initial posting for information, found that these names could possibly be variations of Pahides as P in greek is R in english.
Rula or Roula
Socreates would be her fathers name, do not really know that Julie is Rula or Roula in greek.
Looking for the PAHIDES family:
Looking for the Pahides family..my Aunt Jacqueline is looking for her family that she has never met. She is not out to gain anything just the connection. Just to meet her family. Her half sisters name is Rula (julie??) Pahides, she believes her Fathers name was Socreates Pahides. My Aunts mothers name was Mary Minerva Bowers. She knows they resided in the Pennsylvania. Philadelphia area, United States. She was approached many years ago by an unknown woman who asked her for her name, the woman had a young girl with her who looked exactly like my Aunt. When my Aunt told the unknown woman her name the woman left and my Aunt never heard from nor saw this person ever again.Even if there were a promised marriage between my Aunts Father and someone else this should not have been a reason to never allow my Aunt access to her family. We all need to know where we come from and our familys history and maybe any genetic health issues. Rula (Julie in greek??) would be about 55 today. Please if anyone knows of this family contact me as soon as possible Thank You for your time and patience Sincerely Lisa A Cincotti
