I just saw your message, dated 13Sept08, a few moments ago on this forum when I "Googled" Huta Samokleska.This is the first time I visited this forum.
I was shocked to see your message and that your grandfather was from Huta. Huta was a very tiny village and in my 11 years of family research, never met nor corresponded with anyone else whose ancestors came from Huta.My Kiehart (Kichard)grandparents, Andrzej Kiehart and Justina (Kityk) Kiehart from Mayfield, PA were born in Huta and I would like to hear from you about your Danilo ancestors and Huta.
Huta no longer exists because the communists drove the families there out in 1945 and sold their homes "as building materials" to Polish residents elsewhere whose homes were damaged or destroyed in WW2.
I have visited Poland five times since 2003 and have spentmost of my time visiting the former location of Huta and interviewing elderly family and neighbors who once lived in Huta.
The area of Huta is now included in Magurski National Park and is now overgrown with forest.You can read about some of my visits there at "avillagecluster.com", a website about our Lemko ancestral villages that I work on with two ladies from NJ.
There never were more than 19-20 homes in Huta in it's 200 year history.I have researched Huta at the Polish Archives and Registry Offices and the research and interviews I conducted in Poland have shown that a Petro Danilo lived in Huta until his family's deportation in 1945, when the communuists moved them out.In addition, the Archive records show that Wasil Danilo lived in House #1 and Iwan Danilo in House #6 in Huta in 1850.Iwan Danilo was still living in House #6 1875.
I have an 1850 map of Huta showing house locations, with resident names, and numerous photos that I can share with you.
So that I don't miss your message, I would appreciate hearing from you via both this forum and my e-mail address: "firstname.lastname@example.org".
