We are trying to recreate our family history.
Our grandparents were Ian Zubowicz and Ianina Skurjat. My grandfather was born on January 16th, 1924 in in the village Szczotki of Pastavy county in the Vitebsk Region district as far as we could find. He was Roman Catholic (people told us that this information is relevant since all documentation was registered at local churches depending on the family’s religion).
He arrived in Argentina when he was 6 in 1930. We remember he spoke Polish as his first language and Belorussian and Russian as second languages what makes sense since he was from Polish origins but he was born in a village that is now Belarus and we know Russian was and still is spoken as well.
Our grandmother, on the other hand, was born on July 14th, 1924 though we celebrated her birthday on June 13th since she said that was her actual birth date. She was born in a village called Jodlowicze. She came to Argentina in 1927 ate age 2 and she spoke Polish and Russian; we remember she used to attend Catholic-Orthodox services at one of the most important Argentinian Russian Churches.
Anyway, we would appreciate any information we can find regarding your family.
Greetings from Argentina!
