The telenka (Ukrainian: ) - (telynka, tylynka) - is a primitive form of dentsivka without fingerholes.

The pitch produced from the instrument is changed by placing a finger into the open end of the pipe and covering this opening by a half or third etc. and also by the strength of the players breathe.

It is made from linden, sambucus, sycamore or willow.[1] Its length is approximately 35 to 40 cm (14 to 16 in), although instruments can range up to 60 cm (24 in) in length.

This instrument is very common in Romania especially in the areas bordering with the Ukrainian Bukovina area where it is known as the tilinca.

IMHO it might be a bit of a stretch, but ask Ihor, he might be able to help.

I did a search for Telynka =
as a surname and found none. It only shows up as a Hutsul musical instrument.

Hi Hannia,

Yes it is a stretch, it just when I saw telenka Latinized as telenci I thought I was on to something. Maybe wishful thinking that my surname was derived from a flute rather then a calf

Thank you for all your help, you have been very kind and helpful.

Very Best Regards,
Larry

You could have been saddled w/a Cossack surname and those are truly humorous in nature, like big nose or crooked teeth or short arm.

Your ancestors were likely agrarian. Keep in mind that the first agrarian culture, the Trypillian culture, scientifically dated 5500 BC (technically pre Egyptian Pharaoh Period) was located in what is predominantly Ukraine today. They invented the first in-door stove and were the first bread bakers ever anywhere.

Hello Larry,

Hi Paul,

Yes it is just a few miles north of the Slovakian border and very close to the Ukrainian border to the east. Its really just east of the Lemko area of the Carpathian Mountains. It was trashed by the Germans moving toward Russia, it was trashed again by the Germans retreating from the Russians and it was trashed by Russians, Then what was left the Polish deported the remaining people to the Ukraine and imported Polish framers who didn't stay long. I think about 300 people live their now, mostly connected to the tourist (hiking business) industry.

During the Polish/Lithuanian commonwealth days it was right on the border between them and the Ottoman Empire so its possible that their was a Cossack outpost there or even a regiment of Lipka Tatars in the area. I read that many peasants from the Steppes located to the mountains because it was easier to hide in the forests to avoid the Golden Horde and Tatar raids.
