You paternal ancestors were Hutsul.

The Hutsuls are a ethno-cultural Ruthenian/Ukrainian group that has had a distinct self-identity for a few hundred years. The moved into the Carpathian highlands between the 14th and 18th centuries. Because of their isolation in the mountains and resistance to change they were able to preserve their traditional way of life, based on cattle and sheep herding and craftsmanship, despite falling under the rule of many different governments. Even the Soviets let them continue their traditional lifestyle and crafts. With a degree of autonomy and strong communities, they achieved a noticeably higher standard of living than other people in the region.
