Town Location Request Form

Please print and complete this form, and mail it to the address listed below. A search will be done for each town name, using several sources, such as:

  • Slownik Geograficzny (CD)*
  • Spis Miejscowosci Polskiej Rzeczypospolitej
  • One or more gazetteers, as available for the area
  • One or more atlases

It is very important that your request include the province or partition, and any other clues that may help us to identify the right place. It may be helpful to include a copy of the source listing the town. Please note that you are paying for the search; we can not guarantee that we can pin down the town.
