Hi William, it does look as though we are related. John Tyas went to Poland (Rodomsko) on behlf of the English government in the 1850s to find wood to help build the railways. I have been to Poland to meet the family and seen all the documents that requested them to do this. It is an amazing story, how they survived lots of cheating by a Count and his colleagues who rented the land to grow the trees for wood, etc. How they had to choose nationality and how both sides had thought family had died in the war. I have been told it would make a good documentary. I am in touch with Polish cousins and they have put a chart together which I will try to attach in the near future as they are also keen to find their roots. The only surviving member that remembers my father is seriously ill, so I hope to go out to Poland very soon to see her. I will pass the message on to my Polsih relatives and see if they can also get back to you.
