Just received the 1940 Canadian Registration report on my great  Aunt 
Julianna Jess born March 4, 1868.  Her marriage record states born in  Kalisch.  I 
have birth records of two of her siblings born after her in the  Lublin area and 
a brother born in Volhynia near Torczyn in 1883. On the  1940 record she 
gives her birth place as Mlynow NW of Dubno, which  is close to where I know the 
family lived for many of their years in  Volhynia.  She gives Lublin as the 
birth place for both of her  parents, quite sure that information is way off. 
The birth village response was a surprise and disappointment after waiting  
so long for the report.  The speculation could go on forever why she  answered 
the question that way.  Did not understand the question, forgot,  wanted to 
mislead - it was 1940 and so on.  
Beside the birth and village information there was not much on the report. 
Wanted to share my experience with you.
