Neil J. Young
My family is from Brest-Litovsk. According to one of the family member's Naturalization papers which were prepared in 1903, it clearly indicates he was born in "Saletca" a town in Poland in 1873. I have not been able to locate a town called "Saletca". It appears to be spelled Saleteca to me, but Ancestry.com indicates the place was spelled Seletea. Any assistance or insights would be appreciated of where this town is located or what other town they could have been referring to?
Brest-Litovsk is close to the Belarus / Poland border that area has been part of Grodno guberniya during the period of the Russian Empire and at time before and after part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Poland, Soviet Union and Belarus. So it wasn't surprising to see he was born in Poland, but where is Saletca?
