We also ask that people sign their posts with their full names and locations so that we know exactly who is in the discussion.Regarding people's reasons for membership, these are as varied as there are individual members. The following words are taken from the Welcome letter that gets sent to all new members:"GROUP MEMBERSHIP. Any person interested in research, remembrance and recognition of these tragic events is very welcome, regardless of ethnic or religious background, age, personal history, political persuasion, or country of residence. However, any membership is only by approval of the moderator, in order to ensure that group members all subscribe to the shared goals and mission and uphold group values."Although not all members will have lost family property, in fact cClaims for property losses by dispossessed Polish citizens or their families, resulting from Poland's loss of the "Kresy" eastern lands, would seem to be fully in line with our "recognition" mission.Regards,Stefan WisniowskiGroup Moderator, Foundation PresidentSydney Australia-------- Original Message --------

While I warmly welcome new members to the group I am not happy to see
that the primary reason for joining is for a property claim.
Our reasons for the establishment of the group are for:
"Research, Remembrance and Recognition of Poland's citizens'
struggles in the Eastern Borderlands and in Exile during World War II"
I would like to see a little more information about potential members.
