This Weeks Brickwall, Can you help?

“Brickwall” for Nick NYKULAIK

I am researching my wife’s side of the family and am seeking information for her paternal grandfather, Nick NYKULAIK.

Nick was born as Onufry NYKULAIK 1884 –1886 in Austria. His wife Anne KORSKI (or KORSKEWSKA) was born in Ukraine in 1891. It is unknown if they were married before or after they immigrated to Canada. They immigrated in 1911 or 1913. She was from Buxowina, Eastern Galicia, Ukraine. Possible immigration route would be Hamburg – Quebec or Ellis Island and then train to Winnipeg and on to Moose Jaw. I have been unable to locate them in any immigration data.

May 31, 1913 the Saskatchewan Border Crossing at North Portal shows Mrs A. MYKULAIK, age 21, born [1892] in Austria, travelling on train # 151 from Penn to Chaplin [about 50 miles west of Moose Jaw] to meet her husband.

In Canada, they were residing at 83 Home St. W. in Moose Jaw in 1916, 1921, 1940, and1945 (Nick now retired). In 1949, he lived at 53 Fairford St. E. in Moose Jaw.

Nick was a labourer and they attended the Greek Orthodox Church.

Their children were all born in Moose Jaw, SK.:

·         Anne b: 1914

·         Nick b: 1915

·         George b: 1918

·         Peter b: 1921

·         Mary b: 1925

Nick (d: 1948) and Annie (d: 1949)  NYKULAIK (senior) are buried at Rosedale Cemetery in Moose Jaw.


Records they were located in were:

·         1913 Border Crossing

·         1916 Canada Census

·         1918 Birth certificate for George

·         1921 Canada Census

·         1940 - 1949 List of Electors

·         1942 Marriage certificate for Nick (Jr.)

·         1948 Rosedale Cemetery

Awaiting replies from:

·         Stats Canada on 1940 National Registration Records for Nick (Sr.) and Anne.

·         SGS Obits for Nick (Sr.) and Anne.

·         Search of Church Records from Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, Moose Jaw.

·         LAC for Military service record for Nick (Jr.).
