Tony Ivinisivich - Trying to locate member of Polish army (WWII)

5 May 2011 #1
Hi there.

I wondered if anyone might be able to help me.

Im trying to locate my grandfatlher who I believe was in the Polish Army.

All I have is his name (which im not even sure is the correct spelling) & that he was based in Arbroath around 1944.

Are there any records out there that list all previous members that I can search through?

Any help & advice would be most appreciated.

His name was Tony Ivinisivich however, I cant seem to find anyone else under that name. i noticed another spelling of it which was Ivanisevic however, that appears to be a Croation name.

The Ivinsivich spelling is NOT Polish. The closest is Iwosiewicz, a patreonymic nick from Iwo, a south Slavonic form of the first name John.

His name was Benjamin Perel and he was born in Zamosc Poland around 1920's.
If someone knows where there might be a list of names of the soldiers or where they might be buried I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you..

Ivanišević is Serbian surname, by most of stories from Montenegro. Surname expanded in 17h century all over the region after clan Ivanisevic conflicted with local Turkish occupational force and retreated for safety reasons. They were Orthodox Christians. Family SLAVA (old family universal Slavic pre-Christian custom, still celebrated only by Serbs) was St. John (Sv.Jovan- saint protector, basically representation of oldest ancestor in Christianized form).

My uncle was killed in WWII and I'm told he was in his early 20's. I have no idea which unit he was in or where he was killed, but hope someone could tell me where to search? His name is Wladyslaw Juchno.
