For several months I have been trying to obtain information about my family history. I visited the Ukraine in December and contact the Red Cross. Unfortunately, they were unable to help with my requests. My last name is Szoludko (Sholudko). My father was "supposedly" born in Kyiv. However, our family later discovered that his documents were a forgery. Given that he belongs to the Ukrainian Catholic Church, I believe that he might be from the Lviv area. My father (Anatoly) and his parents (Maria & Miron) left the Ukraine in 1942. They made their way to Germany first and then six years later to Belgium and from there, to the United States. In the interim of their stay in the States, my grand parents never revealed any truth about relatives that stayed in the Ukraine. My purpose is to find any relatives that carry my last name.
My father was born on May 8, 1942. If you have any such records, or other records of people bearing my last name, I would greatly appreciate if this information could be passed on to me.
