> The enclosed map shows the "Fiefs of the Kingdom of Poland", I'mstill reading the book to figure out what years this map was valid
from-to.Odessa is not written on the map, but it would be just west
along the Black sea from Oczakow and clearly within the borders of
the Polish Kingdom.
>I have a small historical atlas (from my school days) which I have
just consulted, and according to a map dated 1494, the Polish-
Lithuanian commonwealth did indeed stretch as far south as the Black
Sea, and included the area that was to become known as Odessa.
However it would appear that the area was held only briefly as a map
100 years later shows that the Black Sea coastline as now being held
by the Ottoman Empire.
- Basia, Good luck with your search! You can find details of Jozef, born 1915, father Jozef here: http://www.indeks.karta.org.pl/pl/szczegoly.jsp?id=110563 ThisMessage 127 of 127 , Apr 3, 2012View SourceBasia,Good luck with your search!You can find details of Jozef, born 1915, father Jozef here:This refers you to the Polish Army Central Archive, CAW, who will have details of the first three entries. I'd email them with full details of your father, these references and ask for copies of any papers they have. They are very good at responding, but it does take some months. Don't forget to provide them with a postal address. Whilst you're at it why not ask for your grandfathers records?email CAW at: caw@...JanuszUK----- Original Message -----From: BasiaSent: Tuesday, April 03, 2012 12:51 PMSubject: [Kresy-Siberia (est.2001)] IntroductionMy name is Basia Zielinska, I live in Sydney and have very recently become aware of the group.I am seeking information about my father Jozef Zielinski who was interned in Siberia before 1942.I only know from stories that he was in Siberia and I want to find out as much information as I can.My father died when I was 10 years old so my information about him is scant though I do have his soldier's book from England, and there is a bit of information there about him, post 1942I also have a few photos, one is particularly intriguing, a group of soldiers which may be interesting to other members.I look forward to setting this search in motion and look forward to instructions from members, which may help me.Kind regardsBasia Zielinska--
