Polish Bauknechts in Ukraina
I'm looking for any informations about my family. My grandfather Emeryk
Wilhelm Bauknecht was born in 1892 in Lviv. His parents were Mieczyslaw Bauknecht and Anastazja Mesyszyn.His forefather was a "boss" of the land court (the institution of the land owners) in Rohatyn.I've heard about great-grandfather's estate Bieriezany (53 km south west from Tiernopolin Ukraina)
by the river Zolotaja lipa (Golden lime) where his son was spending holidays.
Emeryk Bauknecht (my grandfather) was a mayor of Otynya before the World War Two. He was
a "boss" of BBWR (Independent Party of the Cooperation with Government) in Lviv.
