Among the most interesting of them were coins and photos of Tanya Anestheieva, belonging to her grandmother Sultana, who gave the beginning of one of the big families in the Burgas district of Kraimorie. The young Todor Todorov showed a ring and a satin from his great-grandparents who had moved from both parts of Thrace. Most of the objects came from the descendants of the Asian Bulgarians who live today in the village of Lyulyakovo. Among the donors are Veneta Staneva, Maria Purnarova, Maria Shishmanova, Denka Stoyanova and others. Of great historical value are three declarations stating the ownership of the land left in Bunarhisar - East Thrace. They were provided by the young history teacher in Aitos - Nikolay Hristov.

Poster travelled the distance from Burgas to Lyon to inspire our compatriots in the French city where more than 5000 Bulgarians live. In one of the Bulgarian shops in Lyon there is a small library with books in the native language that can be borrowed.
The first set of interesting books for the library is donated by the Bulgarian newspaper "Desant". The trip from the Black Sea coast to the bank of the Rhone the books made from hand to hand through 8 people. Now after the growth of the book collection, the local librarian and long-time journalist, Jean Solomon, decided to place a poster with the library's working hours.
Some time ago, he read in the newspaper "Desant" information about exhibition at the Burgas Historical Museum entitled " In the steps of Father Matthew and his companions." As the Library in Lyon is named after the this Bulgarian Revival leader - Matthew Preobrazhenski, Jean wished to receive a poster from the exhibition, which he turned into a poster for the library with Bulgarian books in the small Lyon shop.
The Regional Historical Museum in Burgas immediately responded to his request and soon afterwards the poster reached him.
