There's a great website to find family sent to German work camps: Type in the surname (or town of birth in the advanced search).

Wow, it doesnt happen very often that searches bring up OLEKSIUK, and this one did. Pity, my GF aint listed.
Nor is GM.

Although i'd like to follow up on others with same surname, particularly those from the same area/village.

...aint able to find the advanced search yet..

Hi Bobby, the advanced search is the 2nd tab from the left 'zaawansowane' Type in the surname - 1st box or the place of birth - 6th box down. It pays to type in any towns that are nearby too. I also found that if you aren't using the polish alphabet it skips names. So going by the town gives you better results.

I use the online prog- I have this permanently opened in my Opera browser, doesnt always give good results though.

In terms of it being good, dunno.
