Hello all,

Thanks for the answers. I'm afraid this village starts to confuse me more
and more. First Jerry gave me the coC6rdinates of a village called Sadombrowa
(he suggested spelling variants Sadombrow / Zadabrowa / Zadombrowa) which is
near to Olszanow (located on 25 degrees N/S, between 50 and 51 degrees E/W).

The place Dombrowa / Dabrowa that Guenther suggested, I can not find at all
on the map of the Ukraine I just bought today.

Then I looked in the surname database at SGGEE on birth-place and I found
the following places:

Is this all one and the same village????

Kindly regards,


PS. I just phoned a small specialized book-shop in Amsterdan and they will
send me a detailed map of Volhynia in a few days. Hopefully this will help
to clearify this matter.
