I understand that Shtetl Seeker (which I've used very
infrequently) can list a town under several spellings -
some more official than others.
It explains that those labelled "N" and "C" are official
(one local and one what we consider normative), while
"V" means "former names, minority language names or
So one would think that every town listed would have at
least one "C" or "N." So howcum Rozdol (now Ukraine) has
only listings that are considered variant. Don't the
governments call it something??
(Rozdol is probably ground zero for every Pi(c)khol(t)z/c
who ever lived. We are chasing all of them.)
