Well, Rachel, this is as good a place to start as any.  We focus on Russian 
Poland and Volhynia but some of us have resources for other areas of Poland 
as well.

You have a really big problem here that posting to another mailing list, 
even with more experience, won't solve.  You simply have to find more 
information.  I see at least 3 Grabowo in West Prussia (might be one or two 
more as I didn't do a detailed check).  I don't see any Grabow or Grabowa 
in West Prussia though again it is possible I missed one.

I think you basically have 2 choices.  You can try to find other records 
that might provide more detail.  OR  You can start the search in at least 
these 3 places to see if you can find your surname connected to them.  If 
you found your surname there, you could do more detailed research to see if 
it was the right family.  If you want to do the latter, we can point you to 
the specific locations for further investigation.
