These are all projects that are being coordinated via the Kańczuga Yahoo Group, run by Philip Trauring, Gesher Galicia town historian for Kańczuga. Much of the work, however, will not get done without volunteers who can contribute their time and effort. If you can help with any of the projects listed below (in particular those showing that a coordinator is needed) it would be greatly appreciated by everyone involved.
To contribute to these projects, please join the Yahoo group and post there. If you need to reach me directly, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
