What is the time frame of these deaths?  Guenther has given some good 
suggestions but, if these places are associated with the resettlement 
westward of Germans, their location may not apply.  For example, 
there is a Karnin about 5 km SE of Gorzow Wlkp. in western 
Poland.  There is no Zytin or equivalent nearby so I may be out to 
lunch but knowing the time frame might help figure it out.
