(typed) as Wola Rozurnicka. The Shtetl Seeker turns up nothing for this.
Does anyone know what it might be? David Fielker London, UK >>

Assuming that Jaroslaw is correct, Wola Rozwieniecka (49.58/22.34) seems
the most likely shtetl. It is only 6.2 miles WSW of Jaroslaw, Poland and
was then part of Galicia (Austro - Hungarian Empire). Many people when
asked where they came from, referred to the nearest "large town", in this
case Jaroslaw.
