Please welcome Stephen to the group. He is looking for any information about his family ( Todryk / Todrik) who came from near Grodno before WWII. The villages he is interested in are are Labno, Nowosiolki, Karolino.
Stephen's father Edmund Todryk was born in Trycze in 1929, and lived in Labno which is very near to Nowosiolki. His father and Stephen's grandfather, Boleslaw Todryk had a brother Jan Todryk. His grandmother was Michalina Sadowska from Karolino. The parents of Boleslaw and Jan ( great grandparents) were Jozef Todryk and Jozefa Czereszkiewicz. Stephen's father's family were deported to Siberia by the Russians in 1939 and he travelled through Kazakstan, Iran and eventually Palestine to join the cadets of the Polish Army in exile. From there he came to England in 1947. Some of his family members are on our Wall of Names.
Stephen asks if it is possible to find any documents from those times and that region? He is looking for birth certificates, marriage certificates, census documents.
