Our family has begun to search the microfilmed church records from the villages in Bukovina (now Chernivtsi oblast) where Baba and Gido's familes originated. We found the later records written in Romanian, earlier records in a mixture of Ukrainian Cyrillic characters and Roman characters. This mixture is within the same entry, and often within the same name. The book Ukrainian Genealogy-A Beginner's Guide has been very helpful as it has information about both languages, and much info we haven't tapped into yet. Here's a link to a description of the book.
