About us

This project wishes to investigate the orgins of people living in the five Hungarian villages of Bukovina (Andrásfalva, Hadikfalva, Istensegíts, Fogadjisten, and Józseffalva) The villages were founded in the 1780's by Hungarian-speaking settlers, coming mainly from Transylvania (but also from some other localities). Several hundred families from the five villages emigrated to Saskatchewan in the early 1900's and settled near Regina, homsteading and founding the village of Arbury. In 1941, residents of all five villages left Bukovina and most were eventually resettled in Tolna County, Hungary. This project traces members of a group of people bearing particular surnames. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. Females do not carry their father’s Y-DNA and acquire a new surname by way of marriage, so the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his direct paternal line (father’s father’s father’s…) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test. Females who would like to check their direct paternal line can have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test.
