Hello Goodbye, when your grandparents left for America? They arrived all together?
Do you know anything about your grandparents homeland?
They left after the Revolution in 1921. They lived in the Novohrad-Volyns'kyy region of the Ukraine. My maternal grandfather was a dairyman and my paternal grandfather was a farmer.
My grandparents married in Russia and in both families, my grandfathers came here first, earned some money so they could send for my grandmothers. They started their families in New York. This was a common scenario among Russian immigrants after the Revolution.
It was a struggle for them here during the Great Depression. But they raised beautiful families. On my father's side, all three children (my father, uncle and aunt) became doctors as did myself and my cousins.
