KONECHNA
Konechna and Zhdynya are two communities near the Slovak border. In 1847, cholera and measles caused the death of nearly 250 inhabitants. The infertile land could not support the population, so the inhabitants emigrated to other parts of the world. The first to leave for USA was Pawlo Khylak in 1869. By 1909, 500 others left for North America. Both tserkvy were closed for a long time, but now are used by the Orthodox communities.
