Hi Tom! "Nizno Lapse Zupa Spiska" means Nizne Lapse (Lower Lapse) in
Spis County. Today that village is just over the border in Poland,
spelled in Polish as Lapsze Nizne, NE of Zakopane in Poland, north of
Zdiar in Slovakia. Right next to, logically enough, Lapsze Wyzne
Try as I might I have not figured the place name business out.
Following some good advice I will only ask one question concerning
Maternal grandmother was Mary Soltis, daughter of Catherine Soltis
Kasisky (remarried). Mary was married to George Sempa/Cempa and
immigrated to Pittston PA with her first child in 1896. Bible records
indicate birthplace as Nizno Lapse Zupa Spiska. (spelling???)
I could tell you what I think that village locator means but the
mixing and matching of Slovak, Hungarian and Polish terms has got me
very confused. Any help would be appreciated because I cannot locate
this place as of yet.
Any help in providing online URL's of appropriate shipping records
Thank you to all in advance.
