- View SourceIrene has looked for my family's specific names, and has sent me info on one
of them (Stanislawa Wisniowska).
Don, when you go to the Hoover, I would appreciate your help in finding
anything at all in the Hoover referring to the settlement of WARSZAWKA.
This was a civilian settlement 6km north of BRODY, set up in the early
1920's by Polish settlers who purchased their land. I understand that the
majority of them were deported on 10 Feb 1940.
I believe that there are several sources of information in the archives
there, including files organised by Powiat (county) and Wojewódstwo
(voivodship) of origin. Perhaps Irene can give us all some advice on this?
