  • Rosalia Basznianin, born 1881 and died 1971, emigrated to Canada on May, 1913 with her four small children after the death of her husband Waleska (Alexius) Basznianin in Zabiala, Oleszyce Stare, Austria (at that time). They settled in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba. One of her children is my grandfather, Nicholas Boznianin, born October 7, 1906 and still living in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba where he spent his life farming. Zabiala, Oleszyce Stare, Austria is a Ukrainian ethnic territory. It still exists today, however, resultant of World War I border shifts is now located in southeastern Poland next to the western Ukraine. Somewhere down the line our last name was changed from Basznianin to Boznianin. There is a government Homestead file on Nicholas Boznianin who, upon growing up, applied for and successfully was granted a Dominion Land Grant. This how he started farming and remained a farmer his entire life. Nicholas Boznianin married Mary Ferchuk in Manitoba on February 17, 1932 and the had two children (one of whom is my father Michael P. Boznianin).  Michael P. Boznianin married Dorothy Hegland and they had seven children.
