Dear Listers,  

I have a Friedrich BAKAS / BACKHAUS / BACKUS, born in  Volhynia, and his family that immigrated to the U.S. from Volhynia in 1894  aboard the s. s. 
Dresden.  On the ship manifest, Nationality is  Russian and Last residence is "Liessapol."
I can't find a Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, or German  "Liessapol" anywhere on a map, and not in Volhynia  anywhere.  Does anyone know what place this might be?  Most likely it  is misspelled?
Two of Friedrich's daughters were born in  Friedrichsdorf (Solomka -German, Соломка - Russian & Ukrainian) north of Rowno  (Rivne/ PiBHe) in Volhynia.  
One of Friedrich's brothers, Johann BAKAS /  BACKHAUS / BACKUS, immgrated to the U.S. in 1895 aboard the s.s.  München.  Johann's Last residence was "Solumke" which is a misspelling  of Solomka aka Friedrichsdorf.  One of Johann's daughter's was also born in  Friedrichsdorf.
Any help would be appreciated on locating the town  Liessapol, which I cannot find anywhere around Solomka (or anywhere  else).
By the way, for those who are interested, I believe I may  have found Friedrichsdorf / Solomka / Соломка on a Ukrainian online roadmap.  Go  to: 
 _http://lemko.org/atlas/atlas.html_ (http://lemko.org/atlas/atlas.html)   
Look for the town of PIBHE  (this is Rowno/Rivne).  Follow directions for enlarging the map by clicking  on it if necessary.  Directly north and slightly 
to the east of  PIBHE you will find the village of Соломка.   Someone please 
correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this is the location of  Solomka aka Friedrichsdorf.  
Thanks for  your help in advance,
Linda  Freehling
