    Town name changes

    I am searching for town in Prussia (Poland/Germany) that was listed on a relatives nat. papers.

    It clearly says that the relative was born in LERESYIAN, GERMANY.

    I am finding nothing when I look up this town name.

    Does anyone know somewhere I can look to find what this town is now called?


    Thank you

    It is more than likely that it is a mis-spelling, written down by a clerk/official trying to work out the town name pronounced with a German/Polish accent.

    My 2x ggf was naturalised, and his papers had his birth place and name spelt incorrectly, even though the writing was very clear.
