Hello Frank

I am not familiar with the gazetteer, I looked it up and it does not

But searched to try to figure out what "lost" means for you.

"3.9. Villages no longer existing, (lost): when a village does not
exist anymore, one should enter in parentheses the word “lost”. We do
not need any direction to the next village (last version of the
guideline) as we have the coordinates that best define the position of
the location. Examples: Nicpon (lost), Kolo, Wielkopolskie, Poland
Cezaryn (Cesarin/lost), Lutsk Volyn Ukraine"

This is from document:

be instructions for adding to the database?
