There was a Rabbi Jacobi born in what was then Poland, who married a Jewish woman (not a Polish princess), and whose children were made counts by the Tsar of Russia. Some of their descendants were Russian countesses, and apparently lived in Russia proper. You may be a descendant of one of them. Or not. It depends on what documentation you can find linking yourself to that family tree. A family legend is not good enough, because, as Jon said, they are often romanticized. Jacobi is a very common Jewish name shared by many unrelated families. Only real documents can link you to any of them.

Hi your map clears up some questions for me....but I'm trying to find Przywaly, Poland.....1888 birthplace of my grandfather Karol P Serafin parents Piotr Serafin and Telka Szczybur. Any help would be appreciated

Are you sure it's his birthplace? Is the document you have in Polish? There seem to be no results for Przywały.

Perhaps Przewały, near Włodzimierz Wołyński, now in the Ukraine, about 10 miles east of the Polish border. However, that's a best guess, and doesn't mean much without solid documentation, and that's going to be very hard to find. The Catholic church there was destroyed by Ukrainian nationalists there in 1943, and it looks as if the whole village has ceased to exist.

That's a possibility, too. I haven't found any place called Przywaly. It might be Przewaly any or other place with a similar name.

Anyway, it sounds like a village or small town and would rather be found on a map of a region rather than map of Poland.

Do you know when your ancestors came to the US? The LDS lists several Piotr Serafin who arrived at Ellis Island.

Are you sure it's the full name? There are several places called Zabor, Zaborze or Zabno but not Zabo.
Have you got any further details?

The name of the city/town (Zabo) has to be misspelled. There are places called Żabno, Zabrze, but I can't be sure.

Could be an inept spelling of Rzeszow ?

Looking for correct spelling of a town named, Vladzimierz -listed on Naturalization records for g grandparents Bartnikowski + Pawlicki. other towns listed are Prasnys and Stegna, Poland. Both where born in 1886, immigrated abt. 1906 to Connecticut.

I guess it's:
Przasnysz - a town
Stegna - a village of about 2000 inhabitants.
You can find both on Wikipedia.

As for Vladzimierz, , there are three villages called Włodzimierz in Poland (we don't use 'v' in Polish).
Also, there's Włodzimierz Wołynski (a town in the Second Polish Republic now in Ukraine) - Volodymyr Volnynskyi.

All of these places seem to be in different regions, BTW.

This map doesn't seem to be correct. Siberia, Caucasus and Central Asia were parts of Russian Empire in 1880-th.

The poster of the map clearly stated that the map was not a map of Poland because Poland did not exist at the time.

Did Posen exist?

Poznan did exist since X-th century, and XIII-th century with city rights. It was established by Polish Royal Piast dynasty
