Description: This research report of journals, periodicals, and newspapers includes Ukrainian, German, Polish, and Russian titles and sources. "Names are often a clue to family origins, since they sometimes impart information on the profession or ethnic origin or some other feature of one's ancestors. Most Ukrainian surnames were fixed in the late eigteenth or early nineteenth centuries..... the ending -enko is predominant in central or eastern Ukraine, and -uk or -chuk is predominant in Western Ukraine." (from page 9).
