      I think it is simply that the organizers of the Losie Kermesh have not heard that anyone with roots in Florynka is planning to attend.

    Hello, My great grandfather Thomas Hubiak and great grandmother Mary Soroka came form the Villages of Jaszkowa and Czarna. My father and I are researching our heritage and are interested in any leads or the future date of the Picnic to attend.

    Thanks,

    John Hubiack
