Re: Russian town names in US Draft Registration - Puizinir and Teltzi #general
A quick look at the EIDB through www.stevemorse.org for the name POMERANTZ
from towns starting with "P" finds several candidates for "Puizinir," i.e.Prusany, Pruzany, Pruzana, Plotenza.
You can try the same method for towns starting with "T."
Did either of these people naturalize? Did either marry in the U.S.? Those
vital records should also list town of birth. Birth certs of any of their
children born in the U.S. may also list their town of birth. If either was
born 1870 or later & was living in the mid-1930's than their original Social
Security application (SS5) should list town of birth. Did they belong to a
landsmanshaftn (burial society)?
