Betreff: [POSEN] maybe different pronunciation?
My ggg-grandfather on his arrival in Australia in 1854 put down
as his former address
Laesgen Province, Silesia.
I have not been able to find this place. Is it possible that the
English interpretation of his accent was way off?
Does anyone with knowledge of the accent know what he might have
meant. I'm quite lost as I don't even know from which region
of Silesia he came from.
Thanks for any help.
Dear Ms. Kluske,
Silesia is not Posen Province. You should join the Silesia/Schlesien

Most cordial regards from Luxembourg
