If this message does not conform to standard procedure, please
excuse me. This is my first encounter with this list-group.
I am searching for information about my Russian ancestors:
My grandmother was Sophia Shatevich, born in Klenovka, Russia on
August 10, 1886 to Alexis Shatevich and Vasilisa Matuzonok
Shatevich. Before immigrating, Sophie lived for a time in
Vilnius, Lithuania. She entered Ellis Island (NY, USA) on
December 25, 1911. She was married to Nicholas Belokopitsky.
Witnesses to the marriage included Alex Mihalowsky and Peter
My grandfather, Nicholas Belokopitsky was born on May 31, 1886 in
Borke, Russia to Mary Belokopitsky. His step-father was Luke
Shibka. Nicholas lived for a while in Minsk. He immigrated to
the United States (Ellis Island/NY) on the SS Czar, leaving Libau
and travelling with Alick Lesocovich to visit Adam Lesocovich.
He entered the United States under the name, Nicholai
Nicholas BELOKOPITSKY's siblings were Luke, Sophie, Donna
(married name: SHIDLOUSKY or SHIDLOVSKY?), and Peter SHIBKA.
Peter's offspring would include Paul, Maria, William, Zenaida &
Also related: Joseph, Mary, Nicholas, Michael, Eugenia, Alick,
Vova Sergie, Victor, Valentine, Anna and Olga SHKURD. Also
Alexander SHIBKO. I believe that one of the Shidlousky/Shidlovsky
offspring was Zenaida, who married a PETROVICH or PETROVICK.
Sophie's and Nicholas' offspring were Anna, Olga, Eugenia,
Joseph, Michael, George, Andrew, and Alexander.
Both of my grandparents were Russian Orthodox. Another name
associated with the family is (Walter, Alex and Ignatz,
Elizabeth, Norma and Mary) Mihalsky. I believe it was probably
their parents who immigrated.
Other names associated with the family are Abramchuk, Rosnick,
I have information on their progeny, of course, but I am finding
it difficult to find information on their birth and extended
families. Any helps would be greatly appreciated!
