> We would also like to include some photos of these places.  These could

> - pictures of the town or village
> - pictures of people, at work or posed or ???
> - modern or historical are OK
> Anything that can be clearly identified with the specific parish as it

> We require good quality photos or duplicates.  Photocopies are generally

> We would also be pleased to have scanned copies of old documents from

> it) and a brief description of what it is.
> You do not have to wait until a parish history appears on our site to

> file until the history is created or I will create the pictures /
> pages in advance of the history.
> Before sending anything, please write to me and let me know what you

> Russian Poland, Volhynia, Podolia, or Kiev.
> We cannot guarantee that all photos or documents supplied will be used as
