About Our Family Research

I have started to be interested in my family research when I discovered that other relatives still exist on my father's side. My father died 8 years ago at the age of 90. I remember asking him once if there were any members of his family still alive to which he replied No!. About a month after he died I received a letter from the local Ukrainian Society which had enclosed another letter from a recent visitor to the Ukraine. This visitor happened to have met some people who were enquiring about my father. In his letter he gave the names of the enquirers and their address. I accidentally met a Ukrainian interpreter here in England and he kindly said that he would write to the 'enquirers' to obtain further clarification as to who they are. He received one letter giving further names. I then asked him to send another letter on my behalf asking them for more information to finally qualify that these people were who they said they are. I would dearly like to believe that more family exist in the Ukrain. As yet I have not had a reply to my second enquiry. All this has led the interest in Genealogy which I am finding quite fascinating.
