ShtetlSeeker has two listings for Dunaj, one is in Poland, 230.6 miles WSW
of Warszawa, the other in Poland 57.2 miles NNW of Warszawa.

For Beruany/, there is a Barany which is 89.9 miles ENE of the second Dunaj

For Breczany, I could not find a match.

For Breyany, I could not find a match.

Sorry, not a lot of help, but a possibility.

Is it possible to send a copy of the paperwork directly to me?  Someone else
on the list server might be able to help you also, if they can look at the

There was a war called the Polish Revolt, but this was about from 1830-1831.
Probably not the one referred to in the paperwork.

Good luck.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Ortssuche - Dunaj or Dunaje near Beruany?

Hello, my name is Elly, I live in Canada and are searching for my Polish
I have a copy of a church record (marriage) from 1834 entered in the Kath.
Church in Lhuta, Czech Republic (formerly Bohemia). 
It is stated in this record that the groom is from Russian Poland, a small
place called Dunaj or Dunaje near  Beruany or Breczany or Breyany. The
writing is very bad and on top of it are the places written different in
several documents.
Todate I was not able to locate this place and hope that perhaps someone
from the mailing list has heard of it.
The name of my ancestor is Stepan Mazurkiewicz born in the year 1794.

In a seperate document dated also in 1834 referring to my above mentioned
ancestor and his upcoming marriage (located in the archive of the parish of
Libice) is written,  that the groom is from Russian Poland and has agreed to
stay in Libice, Bohemia once the war has ended. 
Would anyone know what war was going on at that time? 
At this point I have exhausted my resources including maps, Google and
ShtetlSeeker and hope that one of the members has heard of such a place.

Many thanks

Elly Huhle
