[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Heimthal location correct/modern name incorrect

These variant spellings can all be considered correct.  The Ukrainian language softens some of the vowels and so Rowno becomes Rivne, Jasinowka becomes Jasinivka / Yasinivka, etc.  It will vary from one map to another depending on time frame and who is creating the map.

Thanks, Kate. I saw on the map that indeed those coordinates were labeled Jasenifka, not Jasinowka. 

I have called modern-day Heimthal "Jasinowka" for more than 10 years, and wrote that data in books to families. (last one sent out just a week ago to 15 members!)

Then, just this past week, saw there were two Jasinowkas- and that started this whole quest. 

Now, I do believe that my books ARE incorrect. And the modern day name for Heimthal actually does indeed look like it is Jasenifka! The Rose is NOT the same by any name!
