I have finally found documents concerning my husband's maternal
family - these are records of the Jewish Registry >from Brussels,
concerning members of the LESLAU Family, who came to Brussels from
Lodz. However, the birth place of my late father in law - Szulem
Einoch Leslau is written on one doc as "Leneyce ", on another
child's card it is given as "Linchess" and on the third child's
card, as "Lynczyz". On the birth certificate of a 4th child, next
to the name of the father's birth place, it is noted "Pologne
russe (Russian Poland).

The problem is that neither of the spellings, gives any thing
that makes sense when I try to locate the place with shtetel seeker.

Anyone has an idea of what is this place and where ?
Oy, Rivkele,

This is town Leczyca, pron. [lehn cheeh tsah] at 5204 1913, 24 miles NNW
from Lodz
