A significant effort is made to standardize and correct errors
in place names for Pomeranian locations east of the Oder River.
Since one purpose of the indices is to bring together researchers
interested in the same locations and these locations may have
undergone spelling changes, Kreis boundary changes, and Province changes
over the years, we use the spellings and boundaries
found on the Kartenmeister
website as a standard.
Even though the Kartenmeister database is very complete, there are
still locations reported in DPL that do not appear. Our assumption is that
either the submitter has received erroneous information or that
the location was small, existed in the 1800's and was abandoned by
the 1900's. In either case, this information is left unchanged.
Please see our how to page
which explains how you can obtain the newsletter items that contained these
locations along with the submitter's contact information.
