I have now been advised by a family member that the  birthplace of my  
grandfather, Heinrich Stebner, in 1860 is Walka.  I do not find  any towns by 
this name but there a lot of them called Wolka in Poland and 2  in Volhynia, 
one of which is associated with Yemilchyne, Zhytomir and the other  referred 
to as Lutsk-Wolka. There is also a Walki west of Jagonda, north of  
Zhytomir, and a Wulka Zelenickaja near Heimtal which is where he married my  
It seems to me that unless I can determine which of these is the actual  
birthplace, I cannot find the actual birth record and the names of his  
parents. Am I right or is there a way to pursue this?
 I am advised by the same source that his father was Michael Stebner  and 
mother was Anna Brockow.  There are 7 Michael Stebners on the GedBas  data 
base but only one is a possiblility.
My grandmother, born Julianna Schmuland in 1865,  was reportedly  born is 
Duchow but I cannot find any reference to this village.  Has anyone  heard of 
it or one by a similar spelling?
