Seeking information on ANTONI SROCZEK and HELENA "PAVLENKO" SROCZEK of Adelaide, Australia

Journal by scroey

28/09/2011 Hello, my name is John Sroczek . I am 46 years old and my father is very ill. I have always wanted to know my family history, regardless of how horrible it was back in the 30's and 40's. My father Antoni Sroczek was born i believe in Lancut, Poland in 1930. I believe he had two brothers which he lost in WW2 along with his father and mother. He came to Australia in 1950 , i believe on a ship called The General Langfitt. He arrived in Australia with his sisters Stasia, who i have met several times, but is now deceased and his other sister who i have only met once or twice when i was a child, unfortunately her name escapes me. My father married Helena Pavlenko. Her father, my grandfather Prokip Pavlenko born in 1911,died in 1969 and her mother, my grandmother Maria was born in 1920 and died about 2001.My father has not told me anything about relatives or family, alive or deceased as it was obviously very terrible for him. He only opened up to me recently about where he was from and now he is in hospital very ill. I would like to know his parents names, where they where born and also his brothers too. Also my mother Helen has three brothers, John, Bogdan and Les. I am very interested in the Pavlenko's as my grandfather passed away when i was only four years of age. I would like any information no matter how small of disturbing it may be. Thank you and i hope to hear from someone....
30/09/2011 new information which i have been able to collect , dad and his two sisters came on General Langfitt departing on 3rd february 1950 from MOMBASSA, KENYA. From my mothers side the PAVLENKO'S , her brothers John is actually Jan , Les is Leslaw and Bob is Bogdan. I believe my grandmother was Maria Mataska then became Pavlenko. I think grandfather and grandmother , Helena (my mother), John/Jan and Leslaw although conceived in Germany and born in Mildura all came across on the PROTEA departing from NAPLES, ITALY on the 2nd november 1950. Prokip was born in LVIV, nationality Ukranian and Maria Pavlenko was born in WIDORAC.
