The "Cz" in Czerepasnik is transliterated "Tsch" in German. Ulrich Mertens "Handbuch Russland-Deutsche (Mit Ortsverzeichnis Ehemaliger Siedlungsgebiet)" lists a Tscherepasnik as being in the region of Rowno, north of Alexandria; it was Lutheran with a maximum of 25 German farms in 1927. Germans composed 50-80% of the population of the community in 1927.

One of the items in the handwritten notes was this:
"Menke's and Stegmann's lived in Czerepasnik, this is in the same area as the other villages."
The other villages referred to were Puchawa (Mariendorf) and Alexandria, all northeast of Rowno. Indeed this village is just west of Alexandria.
Prior to this I have never seen mention of this village. Does anyone know anything about this village, or did anyone else on this mailing list have family there?
