Danielle asks

Did people live in Warsaw the city or did they live in
an actual area?
Yes, Jews lived in the city of Warsaw. My family lived there >from at
least the late 18th Century. Jews even owned property in Warsaw in the
early 19th Century.

if so can someone supply me with a full list of
towns/villages/Shtetl's of WARSAW, or point me in the right direction
>as to
what resources are currently avaliable.
Your best bet is to use Shtetl Seeker.

Go to the website

If you scroll down there is place where you select that you want a list of
towns within a certain distance of a latitude/longitude. The lat/long of
Warsaw is 52 15/21 00. >from there you will get a list of towns.

I would also search for the FREEDMAN name on JRI-Poland but not just
Go to the website:,
enter the surname
then scroll down and enter the Warsaw Coordinates. Specify a distance >from
the the Coordinates that you want it to search.

I specified 25 miles and found a whole bunch more. However, I doubt you
will find Morris. Try Mosiek or Mordka instead.
