I may have confused you, sorry about that. My granddads name is John Kom on his attestation papers, I have his entire military file now. He says his sister is Annie Kom from Billa (Prov) Czorthier Russia, this is 1916. From another paper in his file he says he is born in Billa (Prov) Czorthier Russia & his sister Annie is from Riga Russia (present day Latvia), this would be 1917-18.
He has Nick Kullba from Edmonton twice mentioned in his file. When I searched for Kullba I found the ones at Mundare. Then I found some cemetery listings for Mundare & noticed quite a few people from Bila Czortkiw.
I really felt that they probably met at the training camp before shipping out & became friends. Maybe its a big coincidence that Nick lived in a town where so many people came from the same place originally as my granddad.(at least thats what we think he was saying to them)
Does Billa (Prov) Czorthier look like a good "match" for Bila Czortkiw?
Thanks for your interest, I had found some of your postings interesting too.
