Town help #poland


dayna reader <zoeys_mom@...>
 

I recently found the naturalization papers & ship
manifest for my husband's g-GF, Leiser KRUGMAN. My
MIL, Leiser's granddaughter, knew only that her family
had come >from "Poland."

The ship manifest lists the family's place of origin
as "Pruzany, Poland." In searching the JewishGen
shtetl seeker, I found a few towns that might be the
one the KRUGMANs came from. Most notable, Pyrzany
(coord 52 39' 14 58') and Pierzyny (coord 51 17' 18
57).

But then I did a search on KRUGMAN in the SIG archives
and found another researcher looking for KRUGMANs in a
town called Pruzhany (near Shereshevo) in Belarus. In
the past, I've (foolishly) limited my KRUGMAN search
to Poland, but I cannot ignore the similarities here.

My question to the group is this: was the town of
Pruzhany, in modern day Belarus (in the Brest region)
at coord 52 33' 24 28', located in Poland in the early
1900s? I'm sure there's some website with this info,
but I haven't been able to find it.
