Hello Günther,

About Zapust I think I had the right one, which is in Kieselin area. (the
marriage says Sapust Kieselin) and there's two villages on that area.

About the Olyka you mention, I couldn't find it yet by looking on a map from
1927 but I'll have a look on town locator.

Thank you for the help
