The four place names you mention have always been known by those names 
in any language.  They are all original Polish and I have no record of 
any German or Russian versions that vary from that.  It is possible they 
were renamed with German versions in the WW II period but I have no 
record of it.

I don't know of any sites for these locations specific to genealogy.  A 
GOOGLE search shows that they all have their own websites, most of 
course in the Polish language.  Zyarardow at least has a section of 
historical photos, most detailing the cloth making industry in that 
area.  Our own SGGEE site has a page dedicated to Zyarardow.

> Hi folks..just wondering if anyone knows of any local genealogy or historical web sites for the ZYRARDOW, WISKITKI, BLONIE area just west of Warsaw.? Also, I seem to recall someone mentioning a website that you can look up cities/towns by their old name and see what they were called in Russian, German or Polish, and what they are called now.? Can someone direct me to that please?? 
> There is a city just west of Warsaw called Piastow.? What other names has this been called?? I haven't been to SGGEE for a while, so I will re-post may family names of DREGER, MEISSNER, WENDLAND AND MILDRADT.
