I am pleased to discover this thread. I am hoping to find out if my grandfather was on the Rimini list. Is there any help anyone could offer?

I have 302118 as the serial number on his displaced registration card issued 14/07/1947 (but date of 25/10/1946 crossed out) from Grieskirchen. Mychaljlo Skrypec DOB 20/12/1924.

Thank you in advance for your help or guidance.

I don't know if he was on the Rimini list but Mychajlo Skrypec "from Poland" has two entries at UK National Archives regarding his naturalization:
HO 334/423/54222, 13 May 1959, resident of Suffolk
HO 409/25/12001, 13 Aug 1973, "Michael Skrypec" now resident of Lancashire.
HO are Home Office files and these most likely will be a single page in binders with lots of other folk.
The five digit number is likely the page or certificate number. You probably have your grandfather's certificate: a pretty document, fullscap size.

Thank you Steve. The first is my grandfather in Suffolk. I found on the transport list from 1947 there were two M Skrypec’s so it looks like the other came to the U.K. too!

Hi , don't know if anyone can help . I am researching my partners grandfather Wolodymyr Puziak born in Ukraine 1924. He married in Coventry in the 1950's to an Italian lady. Unfortunately I don't have any other information, I am led to believe he had a military involvement and possibly was part of the Rimini list. Would anybody know how I can find out any information. Thank you

Joe,
My father was also in Rimini and then subsequently in Camp 156 in Lincolnshire. Have you any names of other Ukrainians that might have been in POW Camps?

Molly Smith
the UK National Archives does not have a naturalisation certificate for Wolodmyr Puziak or Puziak on its own
It does have one for Zygfryd Pusiak, "Polish", naturalised in Birmingham 25 Aug 1952. The search I made came up with a line on a page.

wsenkiw
you have three to chose from:
Josyf Senkiw, naturalised Orton, Ayrshire, 7 June 1978
Mykola Senkiw, naturalised Burton on Trent, 25 Oct 1973
Michael Senkiw, naturalised Stoke on Trent, 13 Sept 1961

Michael will have a line on a page; the other two will have a naturalisation certificate (carbon copy)
