--------------------------------------------------------

You'll also find a helpful translation listing from Polish to German for the names of regions of the area.

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!
