Just now read your post. My Grandmothers name was Barwina. She came to Germany from Poland shortly after WW2. My mother always told me we had relatives living somewhere in England who are from my Grandmothers side. She did not know where exactly. So, maybe there is a chance we are related?

Sorry for my late reply. My Computer broke, and I had to get a new one.
My grandmothers name was Rosa Barwina. Her daughters (my mothers) name is Anita. Her sons name was Siegfried. She married a German named Kurt Brenneisen and had one more son and daughter with him.

Do you have an e-mail? I am not sure if we are allowed to post our e-mail on here.
