Re: Seeking help to locate Prussia ancestor’s family town 1830s #poland #germany


The 1860 census index shows the place of birth as PruBen, which is the German spelling for Prussia, the "B" is actually the German character for "ss", however the handwritten/actual census shows "Prussia".  I suggest that you always look at the actual document whenever possible.
If you haven't searched for them already, I suggest looking in any local newspapers for articles on Marcus Lanskey, including obits, if available, as well as any naturalization documents, Marriage documents, and birth documents for his children.
