Dear Peter Nagurney < Pyotr@aol.com>

Have you tried looking at the microfiche AVOTAYNU sells of the list of
towns -- in alphabetical order -- in Galicia??? Maybe you can find the correct
Polish type spelling for this time that way? Also, you might want to check
Where Once We Walked for its listing of shtetlach, both by spelling and by
Daitch-Mokotoff soundexing. (It looks like Sasha soundexes here by their system
to 440000, and some possibilities listed include Ceaca, Cece, Chesa, Csecse,
Sycze among others.... (I didn't check what countries these were in. )

Bona fortuna!

Sawcha is the phonetic pronounciation, ...
