I am not surprised you are having trouble with maps. Gazetteers, with theirtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
alphabetical listings and sometimes with phonetic finding aides, are much better
for this. Novaya Aleksandriya, which could easily have morphed into Novo
Alexandria in an English language environment, is now called Pulawy. (The "L" is
the Polish character with a slash across the middle.) It is 46 km WNW of Lublin in
modern Poland, according to Where Once We Walked (Revised Edition). Its map
coordinates are 51 25 North and 21 58 East.
Prior to WWI, this place was part of the Russian Empire.
