I live in upstate New York. I was visiting your web site with the intention of getting information on the history of my surname. Over the years my fathers immediate family, which has now dwindled considerably, were unable to provide much substantive detail regarding our family history. I'm hoping your site can. My father was Demitri (Metro) Kramarchyk, born in Maplewood (Albany Cty) New York. His father was Philip Kramarchyk, born in the old country (approx 1870-1880); my father's mother was Tatiana Bilo, she was also born in the old country around the same time. I believe she was born and raised in the Rusyn area until her trip to America. My grandfather, however, I'm not too sure. My father had told me that his father was a paid soldier before coming to America, fighting and being paid by three different countries during his career. I do not know where he held his loyalty, if anywhere; futhermore I do not know where his people were from. Andy assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
