SKOKUN FAMILY IMMIGRATION MANIFEST

Skokun Family immigration  Manifest ship record from SS Barcelona, Canada Line,   Departure from Hamburg, Germany  June 14, 1913 and arrival in Quebec, Canada July 1, 1913.   There are six family members list on the manifest with the cost of passage at  $132.00. 

  The oldest Daughter Franka born 1899 age 13 was left with family in Ukraine due to lack of funds.  Her passage to reunite the family was delayed due to the war  In 1921 passage was sent to bring the oldest daughter Franka to Canada and she married  Thomas Pylypchuk.    As per my mother Jean (Bilyk) Skokun, "She said that Uncle Tom helped with the money for passage to Canada for Franka Skokun.  Franka age 22 in 1921 sail to Canada to her parents Farm in Cowan, MB.  Uncle Tom's first wife Anna Chornoboy died in the 1921 and Uncle Tom was left with three young children the youngest Mike only one year old.  Franka married uncle Tom a few months after arriving in Canada, this is per the married Certificate.   The SS Canada sailed Sept. 10, 1921 to Canada.  Franka had $50.00 in her possession when she land in Canada.  Fifty Dollars in that time period must have been a great amount for a girl of 22 to be in possession of.    Below is a link to The official document for Franka Skokun Declaration of Passenger to Canada

PYLYPCHUK, ANNA 1896 - 1931

 Spelling of Uncle Tom's surname differs in documents Pylypchuk, Pilipchuk, Philipchuk , Pylypczuk and so on.

NOTE:    This has not be confirmed by any documentation that this is the first wife of my Uncle Thomas Pilipchuk and Rosann's  Baba (grandmother). This needs further research.  I will post new info as it is found.  Please check update date on "Family Names" page.

Found this burial record for Anna Pylypchuk  1896 -- 1931 which could be my Uncle's Thomas  Pilipchuk first wife Annie Chornoboy before he married my dad's sister (Franka) in 1921.  Over the years in my Family Genealogy research, I have found that names, dates,  time and places are at the mercy of the person doing the documentation. The birth is correct 1896 but the burial day is off by ten years.   This is why I am questioning the ten year difference between 1921 and 1931.  Annie died in 1921   in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, this was the info that Annie's son Micheal Pilipchuk give me.    There is an Anna Pylypchuk burial  in Canora, Saskatchewan  which is only a few Kilometer north of Yorkton, Saskatchewan.  Anna is buried Row 12 Grave 12 at St. Mary Uspanka Cemetery.  The location and website of the Cemetery is at Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project,  St. Mary Uspanka Cemetery, Southwest of Canora, R.M. of Good Lake #274  SE 23-30-4   W2.  Have posted link below.

Anna is buried Row 12 Grave 12 at St. Mary Uspanka Cemetery.    The name is listed but there is no Hyperlink to the Grave Stone.  The photo of the Grave Stone is in the Section with the Header "Unassigned Gravestone Photos" at the bottom of the Web page.   Grave Stone number 155 is Anna Pylypchuk which I have confirmed through my research.
