Map of the Polish Village of Piasutno (Kolno Powiat)

Of the two places called Piasutno in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries), the first is located in the Kolno Powiat. The village of Piasutno is named on the Third Military Mapping Survey of Austria-Hungary as Piasutno itself, as Poreby-Piasutno and as Ludwy-Piasutno. Piasutno is in the Gawrychy Gmina, but Ludwy-Piasutno is probably in the Czerwone Gmina, based on its location relative to other villages (Gietki and Niksowizna) in the Czerwone Gmina. Piasutno is in the Mały Płock Parish, as are Gietki and Niksowizna. The Słownik Geograficzny entry for Piasutno was translated in a previous post. Continue reading

Map of the East Prussian Village of Piasutten (Piasutno)

Of the two places called Piasutno in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries), the first is located in the what the Słownik Geograficzny calls the Szczytno Powiat. The village of Piasutno (Piasutten in German) is not named on a map of East Prussia from 1882, but it is located about halfway between Schon Damerau and Gr. Puppen. Today, Schon Damerau is called Trelkowo and Gr. Puppen is called Spychowo. The Słownik Geograficzny entry for Piasutno was translated in a previous post. Continue reading

The Polish and Prussian Villages of Piasutno

Several of my cousins descend from Józef Dymek of Dymki, Kolno, Łomża in Poland. The Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries) lists three villages called Dymki, but the one that matches this location, the first in the Słownik Geograficzny entry, does not provide the location of the parish where the records would be located. A search for the surname Dymek in the World War II draft registrations revealed that a Stanisław Dymek was from Peosutno Dymki, which I believe may either be the same village for which I am looking or may be another village nearby. Two villages called Piasutno are described in the Słownik Geograficzny. Continue reading

The Polish Village and Gmina of Czerwone

Several of my cousins descend from Józef Dymek of Dymki, Kolno, Łomża in Poland. The Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries) lists three villages called Dymki, but the one that matches this location, the first in the Słownik Geograficzny entry, does not provide the location of the parish where the records would be located. The entry does, however, mention that the village was in the Czerwone Gmina. I looked up Czerwone in the Słownik Geograficzny and found a description of both the village and the Gmina of that name. The map below is a composite image of the Czerwone Gmina generated from two of the Austrian Military Maps from 1910. The vilages that belong to the Czerwone Gmina are highlighted in black boxes. A few villages belonging to the Gmina are not on this map, but are located to the south of the area shown. Continue reading

The Słownik Geograficzny entry for Dymki was translated in a previous post. Continue reading
