A number of my Kwast cousins who were born between 1926 and 1939, list 
Andreburg, USSR as the location of their birth. Various spellings were found 
in EWZ files including Andreiburg, Andrejburg, and Andreasburg. I found 
Andreburg, using Shtetlseeker, as being 308 miles S.E. of Kiev. This does not 
fit since all my other relatives were born in the Pulin area of Volhynia. Is 
there a Andreburg in the Pulin area? Another possibility is that the families 
had been sent to a collective located in the Andreburg found in Shtetlseeker.

Second question; where is Zarizin? My grandfather Ludwig Kwast died during 
the 1915 deportation, supposedly en route to "Siberia." A recent finding in a 
EWZ file recorded his death as being in the town of Zarizin. Help in location 
Zarizin would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help.

Harold A. Kwast
