I am interested in joining the group as I am researching my family tree. I
live in the United Arab Emirates but I am from the UK. My father was Polish
and lived in Bojowice, Poland until about 1939 when his family was forcibly
removed when their farm was annexed by the Ukraine, and sent to Siberia. My
grandfather died while in Siberia. The family eventually managed to leave
Poland to safety and via East Africa settled in the UK. At the time of
their displacement 1 sister, my Aunt, was staying with a relative and
remains in Poland to this day.
I do not speak Polish and have no idea how to start to piece the story of
their lives together. I would like to know more about my grandparents and
where they came from and maybe trace my great-grandparents.
I can provide more details if you think you can give me any pointers on how
to get started,
