Subject: Re: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Liessapol????
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:
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,
