Flavio Baran <fdbaran@...>
Maybe you are already aware of this, but there is a Tomaszow Mazowiecki and a Tomaszow Lubelski. Also, I as far as I know, Apfel and Appel, though similar, are not identical, meaning they are not just a different spelling of the same name. Good luck!
(I really don't know why the name Flavio Baran is listed as my name up there, no idea who he is.)
