      Hi Frank - your fingers must have slipped in typing this! Kroscienko in
      Poland is just over the river from Lesnica - less than 5 miles away, and
      Busovce (north of Spisska Bela) is about 15 miles away.

      The Ellis Island Records list some surnames from former Galicija,
      Poland.

      Kros'ienko (nad Dunajcem), Poland is located 47 miles distant from
      Lesnica, Slovakia, which is located south of Nowy Targ, Poland.


      The southern Polish territories around Kraków and Lwów were
      incorporated into the Austrian Empire and renamed "Galicia".

      Galicia was formerly a Austrian Crownland and part of Austro-Hungarian
      Monarchy(1867-1918). Sometimes referred to as Austrian Poland.
      Other names for the area were Galicja (Polish), Galizien (German),
      Halychyna (Ukrainian) and Rus Halicka (Polish).

      In 1918, Galicia was annexed to Poland as "Malopolska" (Little Poland)
      After the 1939 partition of Poland by Germany and Russia, East Galicia
      became part of Ukraine while West Galicia remained in Poland.
      Its former territories are now shared between southern Poland and
      western Ukraine.

      And Bujsocz sounds like :

      Bus^ovce (Sk) Busócz (H), Slovakia which is located 46 miles distant
      from Lesnica (Sk) Lesznicz (H)
