Re: Help locating town from Poznan area census #poland #translation

Moses,

The card is actually a residency card from the city of Posen.
I find the German Wikipedia to be useful to find these towns from Prussian Poland. A search by the German name will generally bring up the page for the Polish town that used to have that name. Carlsruhe o/s is now called Pokój. See:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pok%C3%B3j

Militsch is now called Milicz. See: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milicz
o/s is short for Upper Silesia.

I hope this helps,
