Hi Marc ... I noticed your post and I realize the post is dated to 1999, but am hopeful you will receive this message and respond as my sister Alicja and I are too very curious about our family lineage. Our Mom was Irena Purc Kalisz. She grew up in Lublin (Chelm). Her brother Ignac still resides in Poczekajka near Chelm. She had several brothers and sisters Romka, Stefka and Jan (I believe Jan has passed away within the last 5 years and one other sister passed away as well. If any of the names I have mentioned sound familiar we would appreciate a note from you. We immigrated to Canada as well in 1961 from Koszalin and settled in Winnipeg.
