I forgot to say that I had a look at the Russian Memorial site and found 9 entries with the name Tsviker (which is a Russified version/spelling of your name)Message 1 of 82 , Oct 30, 2009View SourceI forgot to say that I had a look at the Russian Memorial site and found 9 entries with the name Tsviker (which is a Russified version/spelling of your name) but you may know of other family names that could be searched. None of the nine entries I found is stated to have a link with Kalisz or Czernowcy, but then most have nothing other than a trial verdict. Two have links to Odessa. Cheers! Henry

> Hi Tal, You don't provide any clue about how proficient you are in genealogy or historical research, so forgive me if you already know the following: there are a number of internet sites (including this one) that have archival information which may help you; another you could try is JewishGen which has huge archives of material from Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and also the world at large; try variations of spellings when you employ search engines - e.g. Kalisz, Czernowcy, Chernowitz, even your own name could be listed as Cweker, Tsveker, etc (JewishGen has an engine which recognises near matches); if you can read Russian then try the Memorial archival list of names of those who perished under Stalin in the 1930s and 1940s ("Victims of Political Terror in the USSR" at www.lists.memo.ru). You should also read history books to find out about the areas in question because that will help in your searches, e.g. Martin Gilbert and Norman Davies are good starting points. Good luck!

My mums family were from Podryze, Steve Hajkowski who started this thread is my cousin. You are my first contact with another Podryze family.
I see in the list of military settlers, in the files section, a Teodor Wegrzyn and a Franciszek Wegrzyn - from Podryze. As is my grandfather Jozef Hajkowski.
Antoni, sounds like your find of Teodor could be Peters grandfather - right sort of birth date! Peter?
Peter, do you know when the rest of your family were deported? If in Feb 1940 then most likely to the same camp as my family - Chudiakowo
See post# 41550, and others under hajkowski/chudiakowo
Peter, feel free to contact me privately - I have various bits of info re Podryze which I'm happy to share.
