Welcome to my Iwaniw Family Research Web Site. I have been working on my family's genealogy for a little over 5 years. This site has been created to document the ancestors and information that I am still lacking and working to get filled in. To view the full genealogy details, surname lists, and index of the family tree so far, you will need to go to the main site, Our Genealogy Gateway Page.


My name is Taras Roman Iwaniw and I am the son of Theodore Iwaniw and Natalia Iwaniw (nee - Tyzbir). My parents were both born in Ukraine and emigrated to the United States via Ulm, Germany after World War II. I have gotten quite a bit of information from talking to my parents, but there is still a lot of information that I am lacking. Although my father did know his grandfather (my great-grandfather), he was but a child when he knew him and did not spend a lot of time with him. My father's father (my grandfather) passed away when my father was just a baby, so his recollection of him is limited.

This web site is part of our Family Historians Collaboration Project. Essentially, I am looking to make contact iwth anyone else who may be doing family research  in the same areas and surnames as I am.  If you have any information about any of the people listed here or if you anyone in your family originally came from Lutowiska, Galacia, Poland or Lisytiache, Ukraine, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. You can contact me via .
