  • Wyrzysk [Wirsitz] / Nak?o [Nakel]/ 1835-1875 / 2366, Roy Schnell, July 7, 2005


You'll also find a helpful translation listing from Polish to German for the names of regions of the area, such as:

Polish ~ German
Babimost ~ Bomst
Czarnkow ~ Czarnikau
Grodzisk ~ Graetz
Kepno ~ Kempen
Krotoszyn ~ Krotoschin
Miedzyrzecz ~ Meseritz

This latter will be helpful if you find your ancestor's place of birth is reported differently in several US resources. For instance, I would never have mistaken Grodzisk for Graetz. They don't seem to have anything in common beyond the first two letters.
Happy family tree climbing!
