JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help identifying shtetl near Warsaw #general
Victoria Reed <victoriajreed@...>
I am researching my friend's family who emigrated >from Warsaw between 1904
and 1922. On the EIDB, in two separate ships, I have found two members of
the same family identify their birth town as "Miescano" or "Miezeano".
It is possible that another branch of this family was >from "Klasztorek"
(Kalish Turek), 126 miles northwest of Warsaw.
Does anyone out there have any good ideas about what shtetl this might have
been? We are also open to the idea that the ancestral town might have been
in another part of Poland.
