help from other Bahans

I really hope someone can help me. I am trying to trace any of my father in laws relatives and ancestors. He has not seen or heard of them since he was 15 years old whaen he was dragged from his home. He spent some time in Ukraine before being sent to England where he has stayed ever since. He has no documentation at all, not even a birth certificate. His name is Mychajlo(Michael)Bahan and he was born an 27th March 1926 to Katerina and Mychajlo Bahan. I think he was born in the village of Zadworze in Ukraine (possibly Poland). He had one older brother, Ivan and two older sisters, maria and Anna. I know both of his parents had died before he was 15 years of age and I think his brother may have died too.
Where do I go from here? Are there any documents I can find ie Births, marriages, deaths etc? It is very difficult as I do not speak or read/write ukraine. Are ther any useful Ukraine websites in English ie Ukrainian census? Does anyone have any connections with Bahans in Eastern Europe?
