      Hi Debbie,
      I haven't, and it's a good idea. Unless someone else volunteers to contact them, I'll do it.

It would be nice to know what years these records cover. The Polish records seem to be broken up into chunks related to the waves of resettlement. I wonder if the records in the L'viv oblast archive represent all families resettled from 1945 onwards, or if they only cover 1946, or...?
