Hi. I am still looking for Canadian branches of the Gula family. My father-in-law is Michael who married Jenny Hasiuk in the 30's around Myrnam, Alberta. They settled in the Cherry Point district in the Peace River Country of northern Alberta and had 8 children.

I am gathering that most Gula ancestors are from Eastern Europe. Can anyone give me more particulars on where their "family" is from?

My father-in-law mentioned Galicia, Carpathian Mtns . I have some reason to believe he was from Czecheslovakia.

Thanks, Sylvia

Hi Sylvia

My grandfather was also a Gula. From what I can gather his father was Peter Gula and lived in E. St. Louis around 1900. From the stories I was told the family origin was Poland. My grandfather and his oldest brother Stanley formed the Polish American War Veterans after getting back from WWII.

I also know my grandparents made several trips back to Poland when I was you however I am not sure if that was to visit family or not.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks for the note. I'm not sure Poland is a country of origin for our immediate branch, however, a Stanley Gula (about age 53) is one of my relatives. Names do get handed down!

Thanks...about two years late!

With no address, I can't easily contact him. I am in Northern Alberta, Canada.

Hi There,

My name is Dean Gula from Winnipeg, MB. My Grandfather Benedict Gula immigrated to Canada with his wife Julia from Slovakia from a village near Bratislava (I think I have my own research to do). They had 5 children Stanley, Donnie, Joe, Anne and Rudolf most of whom remained in the Winnipeg area, with Donnie moving on to Alberta.

I too am looking to find the village from which my grandparents emigrated.

Good Luck, Dean

Hi Dean,

Here is a website for a Slovak translator.
You should draft a generic letter with all known information and mail it to all GULAs in the Slovak white pages. Slovakia is not that big, so I doubt you will find thousands in the phone book.

The Slovak White pages are found at:
Vyhl adaj = search for
Mesto = City
Ulica = Street
Meander around until you figure it out.

Then, go to this website for zip codes: or

You can also find the names of nearby cities at This website has a wealth of information and you might be able to see which villages/cities your family surname was present in during certain times.

Also, ask Juraj to place a posting of your searching information on www.cisarik.

You can also ask Helene to put a posting on her website at:

For the small fee of Helene's newsletters, she will give you contact information to you of others researching the surname you are searching.

I did a similar mailing looking for FENO [FENYO] in December, and family in Slovakia contacted me. They are gathering family tree information and I should receive it soon. They have confirmed we are family, and also told me things about my great-grandmother and great-great grandparents I did not know before. We're having a wonderful time with this.

Let me know if you come across a John GULA who married Maria LENKO. John and his first wife Helen immigrated to America. Helen died, and he then married Maria (Mary) LENKO, who is also a Slovak immigrant.

Good luck,

Hey I've done some research about the GULA family and the very first Gula's were from Czechoslovakia and and like in late 1700 some went to Poland and Ukraine. I'm part of the last generation that was in Ukraine, and most of us migrated to the States.

I would really like to find out about your forefathers, if you know any more information.
