I am trying to unlock some of the mysteries of the past and trace what happened to his father’s side of the family.
His Father’s name was Boris Tihkonovich Natalenko. He was born in 1908. He had two older? brothers, Aleksandr and Sergei. He lived in the Kharkov area in the Ukraine. He was married twice in the Soviet Union before he left the country during the war. He had two children - a son by his first wife, Nina. He was called Sergei. He had a daughter by his second wife, Vera. Her name was Yulia. He met Bohdan's mother in 1942 or 1943 and they emigrated to Australia. Bohdan's sister, Ksana was born in 1946 and he was born in 1948.
His parents corresponded with his Father’s mother, Ludmila until she died.
