German; Lazan - Polish Łażany?
Thank you for your help.
I did research and found out that there are two places with the name Lazany. One pronounced WA-zhani and the other pronounced WA-zani.
Unfortunately neither was part of Russian Poland in 1885. The first one was located in German Poland, 44 km SW of Wroclow; the other was 20 KM SE of Krakow.
Again, many thanks.
