sorry to be a grump - i would love to try and
help, but i can't decipher any of the place
names, because i don't know the geography well
enough to guess. the jewishgen mail server does
not handle accented characters, and they arrive
garbled, replaced with meaningless,
unintelligible symbols.

it's a recurring problem, but this time i can't
even begin to guess, so please remember to remove
accents before posting messages to the list. (if
necessary, such as to clarify meaning, accents
can be indicated by adding a punctuation mark
after the vowel, such as a' or u: or o", which is
clumsy, but it works.)
