Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Lema, Poland

My great uncle Rudolf Pries was born in 1886 and migrated to Canada in 1910
after discharge from the Russian army.

Family oral history holds his place of birth as Lema, Poland, but I am
unable to identify a city/village of that name.

My grandmother (Rudolf's sister born 1901) always had said she was from the
"Lublin area" although records seem to indicate they were in the Lutsk area
by about 1906.

Can anyone help me locate Lema?
