It wasn't exactly their choice of course - Joe insisted - but anyway, as a part of a family history project, he's willing to pay somebody to go there and try to find the house? - the place where it once stood? some other traces? and take a few pictures. Obviously, with COVID, it may be limited to people who live there or nearby - perhaps, dear Forum members, you know someone there?
Any other suggestions on how to accomplish something like that would be very welcome.
RespectfullyTomasz

My schoolmate lives in Topchikha. May 2

If your client know the name of the street or some other details of where was the house, I can ask her to do photos.
