Zaschak & Strilecky families

I e-mailed Hannia about the Strilecky family a while ago, but unfortunately I lost the response e-mail. I'm still kicking myself over that.

Anyway, wondering if anyone could help me with either of those two surnames.

I apologize, I'm not very good at asking things like this... but if there's any other info needed, I will be happy to help to the best of my abilities! Unfortunately, my knowledge on my own family happens to be a little limited (sad, isn't it?)

Are you the one w/family from a village in SE Poland today, where they manufactured paints for
church icon work ???

What do you remember, both questions and possibly my answer?

Yep! I remember you telling me that. Posada Rybotychi was the name, I believe.

From late 18th century -1918 wies Posada Rybotycka was predominantly a Ruthenian/Ukrainian village
with its own Orthodox Church (St. Onufrij's dated back to 15th century). The filial Roman Catholic Church
was in Rybotycze. Dobromil was both the POWIAT (administrative district/county) and the GMINA (judicial/
tax district). This was the Galicia Province, administered by ethnic Poles for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Bare in mind that Poland had not existed as a geopolitical entity for appx 125 yrs during this Austro-Hungarian
Period. From 1919 this immediate area came under Reconstituted Poland's domain.

Today Posada Rybotycka is a Polish village and St. Onufrij's Church is known as a museum exhibiting
frescoes . (All Ukrainians were resettled by 1947 to the Soviet Union or to the fallow territories once
inhabited by Prussian/German Colonists.*** ) Fredropol is the GMINA and Przemysl is the POWIAT >
Podkarpatskie wojiwodstwo/region in SE Poland, very close to the Ukrainian border. It is appx 11 miles
SW of Przemysl and 37 miles SE of the regional capital Rzeszow.

The 15th century St. Onuphrius Orthodox church is made of brick. It is the oldest Orthodox church
in Poland. In the past there was a small monastery next to it. This was where medieval icon and fresco painting
was taught. Inside the church the 16th century Byzantine polychromy has survived. Abandoned after 1945,
the church is now a part of the Przemyśl branch of the National Museum. The River Wiar which flows
nearby is a natural border between the region of Pogórze Przemyskie (the Przemyśl Plateau) in the
Western Carpathians and the small mountain group called Góry Sanocko-Turczańskie, which belongs
to the Eastern Carpathians. (Excerpt from a Polish Tourist link)

There is Daniel Strilecky who was born in 1891 in Posada Rybotycka. Later came to the United States (unsure of the year) and settled in Pittsburgh, PA where his son Daniel (my great grandfather) was born in 1911. My great grandfather later moved to West Virginia, before finally settling in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
