Having read about your visit to Vinius I feel I must contact you as my late husband Michael Pukiello came from that region,& I have been searching for any info that may help me with what I have already received through the help of Kresy & it's members.
I am including my Michael's late polish home address & wonder if it is still there,it is No 12 Ulan st,Makarycz, Vilno,
I can say I managed to contact his nephew & families but they are in Molodeczno, Belarus,& are lovely but reluctant to answer any questions I put to them other than they say they take summer breaks at their family home now & then.
As you said you had been in contact with the Ostra Brama church I am
sure that was where the family worshipped.
My Michael was a deportee to Siberia & joined Anders army & on to Monte Cassino & I think you know the rest.
I live in Bolton which is not far from you.
Hope you don't mind Michael but one must keep searching & I am not getting any younger.
Hope you are well.Cynthia Pukiello (Lancashire Lass)
