Researching tips and help:

The Roger Clark family has been searching the microfilmed church records from the villages in Bukovina (now Chernivtsi oblast) where the Baba and Gido's familes originated. They found the later records written in Romanian, earlier records in a mixture of Ukrainian Cyrillic characters and Roman characters. This mixture is within the same entry, and often within the same name. The book Ukrainian Genealogy-A Beginner's Guide has been very helpful as it has information about both languages, and other info family history researchers haven't tapped into yet. Here's a link to a description of the book.  Book Review
