They were Polish in culture, traditions, religion, foods, etc. These are my relatives. They came to America from my father's side. My mother's people came from the Lublin area. When they got together, they couldn't understand each other well. Those from Lublin said they spoke Russian. I know those from Minsk spoke Polish with heavy Byelorussian-Russian influence. Was there a name for this dialect?
