Town of "Korlomp" #general


Isabel Cymerman
 

Dear All,
I obtained the SS#5 for an individual born in 1877 who was known to be
Polish. She gives her place of birth as "Korlomp Poland". The town that
sounds most like this comes up as "Kralupy nad Vltavou" but this is near
Prague, Czech Republic. Kralupy seems never to have been in Poland.

Can anyone unravel this discrepancy? BTW, I am assisting a friend with
non-Jewish ancestors.

Thank you! TIA

According to the Jewishgen Gazetteer,
[using the "Sounds Like — Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex" method],
many places in Poland and Russia were called:

"Karolinow", "Charlamovo", "Charlanovo".

At least more probable than "Kralupy"?
