Catching up on some older stuff due to a very busy week.

I am a little confused about the references to Czysew since these place 
names are duplicated several times within Poland and I cannot find Zabiele 
Pikuly.  I assume you may be referring to the region E and NE  of Ostrow 
Mazowiecka which was in Lomza parish.  This is in the opposite direction of 
Volhynia but not an unusual migration pattern.  It may have simply been 
stimulated by availability of land rather than agents luring them to the area.

Several people on this list and members of SGGEE are focusing on this area 
and perhaps they will be able to help you further with specific info.
