Burial Traditions in Galicia or Ukraine

Hi
I am trying to locate articles or books that describe the death and burial traditions followed by peasants in the village of Galicia, Poland and Ukraine .


Thank you for any help you can provide

Hi Tempo,

There is a considerable amount of online material related to death, funeral and burial customs and rituals in Ukraine. See the following link: https://www.google.com/search?q=%D1%...utf-8&oe=utf-8

Most of these articles can be translated online into English. The translations are not always accurately rendered, sometimes leading to some bizarre and humorous results. For example: in one article that discussed the custom of wailing, the word "wailing" was translated into English as "vomiting".

Of special interest is the website ˦ which describes itself as "...an all-Ukrainian cultural-historical, research internet portal for studying and preserving the archaic heritage of the Ukrainian people: its language, writing, culture, customs, rituals, traditions, antiquities, etc.". Worth exploring!

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Richard

Richard,

Thank you for your response. I started in on these sites last evening and I am starting to identify some very good information.

Let me tell you why I am interested in these sites.

About a year and a half ago a retired professor from Toronto and I began collaborating on an historical demography book about the village of Pavlokoma. We hope to get it published in the next year or so.Sites on births, marriages, deaths and migration that reference Pavlokoma, Polish, Galician or Ukrainian villages in the 19th or early 20th centuries or earlier are of interest to us as reference or research material.

If you or other members of Ukraine. com run across articles that fit the above description please forward them to me.

Thank you

Tempo
