Borders were always changing. 3 years ago, I was looking for Kanna, and I got lots of help from the Latter Day Saints History Library at e-mail that was 3 years ago, so I don't know if that will still work, but I have printouts of book pages of maps and info from Polish (translated!) books that they got for me. Go to a Family History Center. Also, when I was on Prodigy, there were some very helpful people, especially Baerbel Johnson, a European Reference Consultant. Try

Also try finding Harry Stein. His address at that time was

I read "The Heart of Europe: A Short History of Poland" by Norman Davies, written in 1984, from the local library. It had alot of interesting stuff in it. Also, "The Struggles for Poland" by Neal Ascherson, Random House, 1987.
For Maps, a gazatteer is what you need - no help if it's written in Polish, though!

There's a Polish Genealogical Society of New England in CT, also, and if you join, you can put a query in the newsletter.
Good luck. If you ever run across Jajko, Tarka or Trac, give a holler, please.
