Looking for anybody who knew my grandfather's family. His name was Nikolai (Kolya) Sobocki, Sopocki or Sobocinski. He was born in Glyadenie, Ivatsevichi district. Before WWII the same village was called Hladziemin. He visited that place in 1973 and I know there were people there who knew him and his family.

My Father VAYSMAN SEMEN MIKHAILOVOCH (Вайсман Семен Михайлович) was born in CHERNAVCHITSY, BREST REGION the 2nd of May 1928 in a large shoemaker's family. His mother's maiden name was DORA
His family moved to BARANOVICHI before the W.W.II. His father died young and
his mother remarried a man with his own children. My father's younger
siblings were sent to orphan's houses (detskie doma), most probably, in
SLONIM and BARANOVICHI, where they were accompanied by my father - he was
the oldest one. He was sent to trade (craft) school either in BARANOVICHI. The war caught him in BARANOVICHI. His school was evacuated first in KHAR'KOV and then to URAL mountains, on the aviation plant. My father studied and worked on this plant till the end of the War. In late
1940th he went to Kiev and worked on a shoe factory in Kurenevka district.
There he met my mother. In 1950 he was called in army, in UZHGOROD
(ZAKARPATSKII region) where he continued to live after his service.
Some time in 1975-80 he received a notice from KGB: (according to my mother)
he was "invited" in connection of the inheritance on his name from Chicago.
He was "brain-washed" in KGB, and was obliged to renounce his relatives.
After this incident my father categorically forbade my mother to discuss
this matter. He was frighten that this connection with his family might
damage my own service as an officer in the army at that time.
I was trying to find any information in our own archives but found out that
these documents were destroyed as the ones that didn't have any importance
for the sate. My colleagues advised me to search in KGB archives. I can not
understand how KGB traced my father's path from his place of birth to
Uzhgorod and why they had that inheritance letter. My father was sure that all his siblings died during the War. Very possible that he was looked for
by his relatives from BARANOVICHI who left earlier in Chicago. How did they
manage to find him in Uzhgorod?! It means that they exist today!
About my name – Boris. The father has named me it in honour of brother Boris.
Truly, Boris Vaysman
