I am looking for any relatives with the surnames Pogoda or Iwanos ( or could be spelled Ewanos). These are my grandparents surnames and I can't find any info on them or their relatives in Poland. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

There are 3 people in Poladn named Iwanos but not a single Ewanos. It appears to be the Lithuanised version of the first name Iwan (Ruthenian forheohn). Lithuanian for John is Jonas, but over the centuries there has been a lot of Lithuanian-Ruthenian cultural interaction also in the name area.
