Thanks for your photos. I think that Steve will be able to put the photos
on the sites in the next few days. Meanwhile, they should be openable from
your message posting on our website.
The girl's name that was cut off on the inscription is Jadzia (short for
Jadwiga, from the German "Hedwig", and after the Polish Queen who married
Lithuanian King Jagiello to unite Poland and Lithuania into a commonwealth).
I am forwarding your information about your family to the group, with the
request that anybody who can provide some further information them or on
what may have happened to them. any theories folks?

> Hi Stefan,
> Here's what I know about who these people are, and the Siberia connection:
> My paternal grandmother, Anna Blaszko Prokopowicz (1893-1976), received these
> photos from her sister, Maria Blaszko Romanowski. Anna, Maria and their
> younger brother, Bronislaw Blaszko, were born in Bastuny, Belarus, a small
> village north of Lida, near today's Belarus-Lithuania border. Until 1945,
> this area was within the borders of eastern Poland.
> Anna emigrated to the US in 1913, settling in Worcester, Massachusetts. Maria
> and Bronislaw remained in Belarus. The family was Polish-Lithuanian Roman
> "A remembrance from Siberia" is inscribed in Polish on the reverse of the
> photo of Maria Blaszko Romanowski and her daughters, Jadri (?) and
> Stanislawa. The date indicates the photo was mailed 30 July 1947 from
> Paczkow. (There is a Paczkow in southern Poland; perhaps they had been
> relocated there by 1947. There may be other explanations.)
> The other photo is Maria's husband, first name unknown, Romanowski. It is
> undated. I don't know whether he and the couple's son, Jan, also were sent to
> Stefan, if you can include my email addresses (bjproko@...,
> bjproko@...) when you post these, I would be very grateful. My hope
> is that someone will see them and perhaps have some knowledge of this family,
> even in terms of the deportation from that area, which still would have been
> eastern Poland during World War II.
> Many thanks,
