Ukrainian ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


The first major migration from the Ukraine to the U.S. occurred from 1880 to World War I. Because the region was divided into Austro-Hungarian- and Russian-controlled territory, many immigrants from this era were identified not as Ukrainian, but as Russian, Austrian or Polish.

After World War II, many Ukrainians fled German and Soviet troops. American relief programs organized to bring them to the U.S. from European refugee camps.

In the 2000 census, 892,922 people in the U.S. claimed Ukrainian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 3 percent of those people said they were of Ukrainian ancestry.
