The latest issue of the Bukowsko gmina magazine, "Kwartalnik" is on
the gmina's web site:
On the right side of the page, click on "Numery" under Kwartalnik.
The current issue is Numer 1(33)/2013.
A member of Bukowsko Triangle, and long-time contributor, Marek
Silarski, wrote an article for the "Kwartalnik!" See below.
Everything is in Polish but you can copy and paste sections into
Google Translate. Just realize that you may not get a very accurate
It's always a good idea and fun to search articles for ancestral surnames.
INSIDE COVER - PAGE 2
The inside cover mentions a CD which shows how a folk wedding
celebration looked 100 years ago. This wedding was filmed in Bukowsko
and originally put on a CD. The CD has been digitized and can be found
on Youtube. The wedding will eventually be placed on the Bukowsko
gmina web site.
Bukowsko gmina has also opened a new web site which will include
places to stay in the area (B&B), tourist attractions, places of
interest, important addresses, etc.
Baby, ach te baby... does not refer to the English word, "baby."
The title is in regards to "Woman's Day" which was celebrated in
Bukowsko. Though the photo shows a lot of women, it's almost
impossible to pick-out someone you know.

"Memories of Piotr Kocaj of Prusiek" is an article originally written
May 24, 1941. Until 1954, Prusiek and Niebieszczany belonged to the
gmina Bukowsko. This could be important if you're trying to locate
records. Kocaj's memories include WWII. Piotr includes a little
information about how many Poles, Jews and Ukrainians were transported
to points east of Bukowsko.
"The train went through Drohobyz, Borysław, Stanisławów, Stryj,
Żydaczów, Zaleszczyki, Czortków, Kopczyne."
If we have any descendants "from" Prusiek it would be nice if you
would translate this article (using Google Translate, with your own
editing) and post it to Bukowsko Triangle. You have to be careful with
Google Translate because it translates people and places incorrectly.
For example, it translates Wola Sękowa to Will Sękowa and Wola
Piotrowa to Will of Sękowa.
There is also an article about the Uniwersytet Ludowy Rzemiosła
Artystycznego w Woli Sękowej (Universty of folk crafts and artisans in
Wola Sękowa). Anyone wishing to learn at this university should go to:

Photo of the bungalows at the base of the ski hill in Karlików! I saw
these being built in 2011, called "Ostoja". I bet they can be rented
