Hello to John Zubal' and welcome to the Kresy-Siberia group. As you may
know, our focus is on the Polish citizens who lived primarily in eastern
Poland and were deported east by the Soviets (and by the Tsars before them).
A large number of the citizens of the Wolyn, Lwów, Tarnopol and Polesie
provinces of Kresy in inter-war Poland, formerly Galicia in the Austrian
Empire, were Rusyns and Ukrainians - and a number of them (especially those
who were property owners) were deported east by the Soviets. I hope that you
may be able to share some of your research with the group.
