I am trying to make contact with any surviving member of the Weres family who lived in Perth from 1949 onwards. Father was Wasyl dceased 2009, mother Kateryna deceased 2003, younger brother John born in Perth deceased 2011. Daughters Anna (72) and Lubomira (70) who arrived on the Amarapoora with their parents in 1949 may, I hope, still be alive and well. As will any children of John and Lubomira.
