    Borzna researchers may be interested in this e-mail:
    My grandfather, Mikhail Yagudin, was a long-time resident and well-known in Borzna, Ukraine.   He was born and raised there as was all of his family, and later returned there to raise his own family and head the firefighter department and become one of the directors of their regional board.    He also knew most of the people you had mentioned on your homepage over the past years.   He has always loved the town and it had been imprinted in his memory very vividly up until the day that he died, 10/30/03 at the age of 83.    His funeral took place today, 10/31/03.
