There is a season for everything. And this is my time to say Goodbye to
the Kresy-Siberia listserv. I was very fortunate to find this resource
five years ago. I found the land and family that my father was forced from
and never saw again; my children discovered an heritage and a world
they never knew and would probably never wouyld have known without the
people on this listserv. In matters as varied as proper gov't channels
re: citizenship, to pre-war maps to family customs and recipes this
listserv is priceless resource. People helping people. This is one thing
the Internet has facilitated greatly.
This is a place which offers healing as well as information. It is a
forum for seeking truth and individual expression. Thank you all for your
direct and indirect help. To all the survivors of the Kresy-Siberia I
wish you peace, and know that what you have shared has brought comfort to
many of us searchers.
It is time for me to go forward, with the knowledge that I have gained
from this experience I am happier and wiser.
Thank you All and farewell,
