Towns within Poznan region JewishGen' Gazetteer #poland


Alexander Sharon
 

Recently  Moses Jefferson requested identification of two towns, related to surname Ebstein and located within Poznan area. As always, JewishGenners came up with good suggestions and recommendations as to towns identification.

Why I am writing this? What is surprising is that JewishGen Gazetteer and related JGFF database were not suggested for the search.

 

  1. Both towns were located within Poznan region, thus search through JewishGen Gazetteer should be narrowed to Poland.
