Introduction to Ukrainian Genealogy: According to 2019 U.S. Census Estimates, over one million people of full or partial Ukrainian descent live in the United States. Statistics Canada in 2016 estimated over 1.3 million people of full or partial Ukrainian descent living in Canada. Immigrating in four distinct waves over the past 130 years or so, research in Ukraine has been limited until more recently due to the effects of the Soviet regime.
