My Great-Grandfather, and Great-Grandmother came to Canada from Russia with a last name of Krowchuk, Can not find them anywhere but army records, I'm wondering if there is a different spelling from Russia, PLS any info would be just great.
They were probably Ukrainian with a name like Krowchuk.

My Slavic ancestry is medieval. Like many Europeans, I descend from the marriage of Vladimir Monomakh of Kiev and Gytha, daughter of Harold II of England (defeated at Hastings By William the Conqueror). Not sure if you classify Vladimir as Russian, Ukrainian or simpy Rus.
