    Good day;
    Very nice to see a Lemko association. I am Lemko from Poland (Rzezow area).born in Sanok 1962.
    Now residing in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Strong Ukrainian community- but not very many Lemkos- but there are a few!
    I’d love to an even in your region some day. Maybe next year, if any festivals, gatherings or celebrations are planned. I’d love to stay in touch. We have a Czech friend, also not far from this region, who we’d like to visit..
    My last name is ISKAT. Not very Ukrainian or polish as far I can understand. But my folks tell me that Hungarians occupied the small village from the family’s origins (Dzierdziew village)
    Grandfather was sent to North poland during Visla and my other grandfather went to the U.S .A, Jersey, Cleveland or Pennsylvania- we’re not sure; but he had started another family.
    Anyways; thank you for reading. Hope to share with you folks some day.,
    Irek (Ireneusz), aka- Erik , Iskat sangskat@mymts.net
