Subject: [podhajce] any contact in Pidaitsi
Hello, my great grandfather was born in podhajce (now in Ukraine) and emigrated to the US at the end of the 19th century. I happen to be in Ukraine now and plan to visit the town where he came from. Does anyone have any contacts in the area who I might reach out to for information or assistance?
