Kwartalnik Nr 3(35)/2013
The cover of this magazine shows an aerial view of Wolica.
Page 3: Święto Chłopa: Peasant festival. You can see from the photos
that there was straw "wrangling" and log cutting. I think people were
using tools that had been set aside several years ago in favor of more
modern machinery with which to do their farming.
In the lower right picture on the same page we can see a picture of
one of the BT members, Marek Silarski from Nagórzany.

Page 5 & 6: Story about the memorial high in the woods above Wola
Page 6: Story about cars that have security devices so they can't be

Page 10: Mentions that a large section of the road near the grocery
store in Dudyńce was repaired.
Page 11: A new grocery store in Bukowsko which is sort of a "chain."

are cheaper here and this could cause problems for the other grocery
stores in the village.
Pobiedno school (Pope John Paul II) has been painted a bright yellow
A mural was painted on the side of a large storage garage owned by

Page 12: Story about Blessed (not a saint yet) Father Anastazy Jakub
Pankiewicz son of Tomasz and Tekla (nee Lenio) Pankiewicz. The

Page 18: The partial diary "Przez zieloną granicę" (Across the green
border) documents illicit trade between Slovakia and the Poles during
the German occupation in which the participants would make the deals
in the woods. Apparently the monetary standard was the American
dollar. A typical price point was 60 zł for a medium quality clothing,
18 zł for cobbler's boots, over 20 zł for ankle boots made of buffalo
hide. Officer's boots ran about 45 - 50 zł. The exchange rate was 8.8
zł per dollar. So you can use the value of a World War II dollar to
estimate the price of such transactions.
Getting caught crossing the border meant death.
Page 20: Interesting story about Nadolany if you can translate it. It
seems that in the first half of the 19th century there about 52 Greek
Catholics but their number was constantly decreasing. In the period
between the wars there were only seven Ruthenian families left. during
WWII 43 buildings were burned (mostly houses I think. DG).
Page 22: an obituary which first appeared in the "Sanok Gazeta" in
February, 1906 about the noble family Truskolaski. Many of the
Bukowsko records include members from this family.
If you have ancestors from this family you need to translate this article.
