Researching: DUDKA, DUTKA, FEODOR
My Grand Uncle was Nichita Procopie Dudka. He had two brothers, Andrea and Simeon. Andrea became my grandfather. All three brothers immigrated to Canada in early 1900's. Nichita baptized a daughter and it was registered in Rucsin, Parih Hotin, Basarabia, Roumania in 1912. His wife, Alexandra Feodor and daughter, followed later to Canada. There are lots of Dudka's and Dutka's in Canada and the States. However, we are interested in finding out more history about Dudka (Dutka's) in Romania. Is Rucsin a place, or is Hotin a place? I have lots of info on Canadian relatives and will share.
