Trying to locate Buzinsky's from Wasiliw

I am trying to find the whereabouts of my older half-brother who is originally from Wasyliw along with his two sons. First of all, can anyone tell me where is Wasyliw? I know it is a small village somewhere in the area of Chernivtsi but that is all I know.

My father left Wasyliw at the end of WWII but left his wife and child in Wasyliw. My half brother came over to visit us in Canada in the 80's but I have never been able to contact him again. I know that he had two sons who may now be in their 40's but I have no other information.

Please, if anyone can assist me I would be eternally grateful.

Andrew Buzinsky

ڦ in Ukrainian.

Wasyliv is a common place name. Do you know if he was from the Chernivtsi region? There is a Vasylivka in the Sozhyanskij raion/district???

I know that the closest "large" city to this village is Chernivtsi but I cannot tell you which region it is in. I think my father told me that he considered himself from Bukovina. Is that a region? Pardon my ignorance of the structure of Ukraine.

Yes, I have found this on google maps. This is the place! Thank you very much. I see the river that my father spoke of! That is amazing, thank you. Can you give me the spelling of the village name in Ukrainian (with the City/Oblast etc)? Thanks.

My half brother's name is Vasyl but I do not know his children's names. I think they were both educated and probably left the village for bigger cities. I know one of them is a doctor.

Is there any way that I can contact them that you can recommend?
