All is good, you are most welcome, this is what KS group does best, assist others, now I know which area you are from, this is definitely Belarus and unfortunately Wolyn is separate and below Belarus, perhaps distant cousin or someone, starting from the one point in time and one side ended up in Belarus and the other continued down to Wolyn. The journey has only begun, lots of catching up to do. The very best of luck and much achievement is wished for all your family.
Thank you Lenarda. Jan and Zenon are indeed our relatives, Zenon being Tracey’s birth father and my uncle. Anna and Danuta, their sisters, are also on the memorial wall and Anna is my mother. I have been slowly adding to their profiles as I find more and more information. Our family is from Radziule village in the Grodno district, Gerwiaty Parish now part of Belarus. Although I don’t read Polish, sadly, I used google translate to check the sites you kindly sent below, and the Baziuk names mentioned although similar, aren’t from that area and are not names I recognise as being relatives at this stage.
Many thanks and best wishes
Are these Baziuk family related to Tracey and Mary-Anne?
