His birth place appears to be  Xeistwa (with diacritics) Poznanski.
I usually take this as meaning 'Parish of Poznan'.  

According to the Polish Word List, "Xiega" translates to 'book'.
So Peter's birth should be in Poznan church records, or possbily in a parish close to Poznan. 

As Peter did not provide brith place information on this death record who knows if his wife or witnesses are have the correct information.

  Hi All,

  I have the 1831 death record of a Peter Kramer from Płock. The record
  mentions the place of his birth, and as best as I can see, it is
  "Kostwa Posnajski."

  Could anyone please tell me where Kostwa Posnajski might be? I've
  searched high and low to no avail.

  Images of the record itself and close crops of the word "Kostwa" and
  "Posnajski" are available for viewing here:


  Many thanks for any help,
