I am of Polish descent through my father. He was ousted by the Russians
in 1939 and the family were sent to Siberia on a cattle train.

My mums family were from Podryze, Steve Hajkowski who started this thread is my cousin. You are my first contact with another Podryze family.
I see in the list of military settlers, in the files section, a Teodor Wegrzyn and a Franciszek Wegrzyn - from Podryze. As is my grandfather Jozef Hajkowski.
Antoni, sounds like your find of Teodor could be Peters grandfather - right sort of birth date! Peter?
Peter, do you know when the rest of your family were deported? If in Feb 1940 then most likely to the same camp as my family - Chudiakowo
See post# 41550, and others under hajkowski/chudiakowo
Peter, feel free to contact me privately - I have various bits of info re Podryze which I'm happy to share.
