Lost Town: I am very sure that this village does not exist anymore. If you find Kovel and work your way down the road to Rozyszcze, you will see that the Stochod River crosses the road. Right there are the villages of Marjanowka, Trysilica and Emilin Nw (which is the new village the survivors established after the war.) Alten Emilin was across the river. It was before Liniowka, but on the opposite side. I definitely saw it on a map the Ewald Wulshke of Wandewring Volynhians showed me. Otto [Orzechowski, my grandfather's cousin] said that after the war, the only way they knew the village was there was by finding the wells that had been dug. Thanks,
