JeanChristophe said:My Grandfather was an uhlan during ww2 (polish). Dont know much about him since he died when i was like 5 years old. All i know is that he fought in eastern Poland against the russians. He was captured and sent to Siberia, he worked on railroad tracks then he fell ill, the russians actually let him go because of the illnes. He died at 83 in 1997 i belive.
My Grandmothers brother also faught against the russians in eastern Poland i think he was in the infantry. He also got captured and sent to siberia where he escaped with some people, and got all the way back to Poland. My grandmother told me that they ate the guys that died on the way, which sounds sick :/ but i guess none of us have been in this kind of situation escaping through the wilderness of siberia during winter without food so its hard to judge. Anyways he died in 1946 of ilness.
Dont have any pictures since i live in Sweden and all pictures of them are at my cousins place in Poland.
Edit: I may find some pictures of my Grandfather pre ww2 when he was in the army. If i find them i will add them later.

the citation read: "For repeated acts of most conspicuous bravery. He led his company in an attack and cleared 400 yards of trench. Though wounded, when the enemy attacked in superior numbers, he sprang out of the trench with eight men and met the attack in the open, killing many and taking six prisoners. For three hours after this, all other Officers having become casualties, he remained with his company, refusing to go to the dressing station, and repeatedly repelled bombing attacks. Later, when the enemy again attacked in superior numbers, he led his men to repel the attack and was mortally wounded. His heroism, when worn out and exhausted from loss of blood, inspired his men to hold out, though almost surrounded, till reinforcements arrived and dislodged the enemy."

The interesting thing is that allot of his colleges from war also died because of some kind of cancer..
Yeah, it was a ***** but we managed to find that we were related to Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (a famous mapmaker), which we traced waaaaaaaaaaay back and found that we were distant cousins with a minor guy in the Cornelia gens. So we're probably something ridiculous like 24th cousins with Scipio.DanAngleland said:I thought that with such people from so long ago in time, millions of modern people are descended from them? Though it is surprising that you were able to trace a continuous line all the way back to Roman times, it must have been interesting to see the many generations and where they lived.
