Alexandra welcome to group and as Helen has asked, please give us more information so we can link it up with the large knowledge retained of our individual members and you never know, someone from group might have lived your family village/town and all knowledge is shared to assist others, such as yourself.
Lenarda, Sydney, Australia
Please welcome Alexandra to the group. Her grandmother Helen Poplawski and her family (sisters - Stanislawa & Wanda, brother - Leon, mother Jadwiga and probably her step-father Bronislaw as well) were taken from Polesie to Siberia, then to Iran and then to Kenya.
Alexandra would very much like to know if anyone knew them or had any connection to the area they came from. She is looking forward to learning as much as she can and is trying to locate birth, baptism and wedding certificates in Poland.
Alexandra, perhaps you could give us the name of the village or town your family came from as that would be a first step? Polesie is a large region mostly spread across what is now Belarus, and Ukraine.
I wish you all the success in your research.
