35204 Interpretation

8/13/2014 4:18 PM I would be grateful for any assistance in identifying the name of the town on the first line of this list that begins with, "Poland.R, ?" What I thought were obvious letter combinations do not approximate any obvious town in the JewishGen Town Finder database. I have included the other towns in this list as a reference guide to the handwriting of the census taker. They are all easily decipherable with the exception of the top name. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Thank you!
