Welcome Jalaine Madura
Please welcome Jalaine Madura to the group.
Jalaine, thanks for the feedback. The website has been a group effort, and is especially a credit to our consecutive webmasters Steve Roy, Halina Szulakowska and Ron Bereznicki.
You can spot Wolpa on the map in Belarus at the following link (spelled VOUPA now).
Also look at http://www.belarusguide.com/cities/cities-voupa.html
This will give you a start on where it is and surrounding towns and centres. If you need more info, let me know.

Dear Mr. Wisniowski:
The Forgotten Odyssey web site is excellent! I have only started studying it but am very impressed with how well it is put together and how comprehensive it is. This is very important for bringing the tragedy of this time into the public eye.
As I begin my research, may I ask one question: my grandparents' family was from Wolpa and I have located the jpg image in the album, but I am having difficulty determining the right province or geographic subdistrict for further research. Could you help, or direct me to the right place to ask?
Many thanks, and thank you again for this website and the great care you and others have obviously taken in preparing it.
