Prussia Place Suggestion

+4 votes
Hi all!

My latest Prussian place name quandry arises from my G-G-G-Grandmothers Death Certificate which states she was born in Balan, Prussia and married in Gross Teschendorf. I am ever edging (slowly...) into prussian research but I can't find a Meyer's Gazette match for Balan, Prussia.

Gross Teschendorf is now Cieszymowo Weikie and I am wondering if Balan is actually Baalau (as in Gross Baalau). Anyone have any thoughts of any other places that might match up?

If you go on Google maps and type in Teschendorf, Germany, you will find it about 4 mi S of Neubrandenburg.   Then if you increase the magnification, Ballin is about 2 mi to the E of Teschendorf., (on the fork in the road).
