Drove right past Milestone today on our way home from Manitoba.  Had 
stayed overnight in Weyburn.  :-)

Can you scan the record and send me a copy?  Sometimes another set of 
eyes helps to figure out the correct letter combination.  While 
Polish has some, what appears to us as, unusual letter combinations, 
Tz at the start of a word is not one of them.  Cz would have a 
similar sound but I don't see any possibilities there either.
