Hi again
I found that the father of Frank Ganczar or Ganczarz was a Jacob Ganczar and he was from Austria-Galicia but not sure what village...and Jacob was born in about 1880 or a few yrs earlier....there were Ganczars living in Pennsylvania too....Marcia

Hi Marcia,
Thanks for the Ganczar family input. No link yet to my Ganczars, but you never know what you'll find.

Ganczarz (Gancarz) Hanchar

Do I understand correctly, that Ganczarz (Gancarz) translates to Hanchar?
I am researching the surname Hanchar and what little I know is that my son's great-grandfather, Alex Hanchar, immigrated to the US in 1908 and he and his wife, Mary Proposki or Paproski, state in the 1930 and 1940 US census that they were both born in Austria. She stated she immigrated in 1914 - the same year their firstborn, Joseph, was born in New York. Both Alex and Mary were naturalized US citizens according to what they reported in the census. I was told by a now-deceased relative that Alex was born in Galicia and some family members immigrated to Canada. His family went from NY to Akron OH, to Indiana.

In the process of searching for the Hanchars I am also learning about Austria, Galicia, and the Ukraine. Please bear with me as I digest the fascinating history behind the names and places.

I would appreciate any guidance.

Many of my Grandmother Eva Ganczar's relatives from Galicia immigrated to the Sifton/Dauphin area of Manitoba. There many of them became Gancher. It may be an English pronounce/spelling issue.

Ping: I'm awakening this thread to mention that the Greek Catholic records and cadatstral maps for Stare Siolo are available for free online. You'll have to wade through a bit of Polish to do a search. Here's a direct link to one of the books: Archiwum Państwowe w Przemyślu
