 Hello Karla,

     I looked at the record on line - to me the place `Lantoya'
 looks more like Santopp. That might be the small village Sontopp,
 Kreis Neidenburg in East Prussia, now called Satop (with a hook
 beneath the a).

     Anyway, you should probably get a few more opinions on
 what is written,

           Paul Rakow
