Greetings oh, most helpful ones!

I have a resident book listing for a relative, Peter Zowarka at the address Oppelner street 15, Royal Neudorf in Poland.

Other documents state he is from Tarnow, Opole so I'm thinking Royal Neudorf must be in this area.

In Wikipedia I found listings in Poland for several "Neudorfs" (New Village in German) and 3 in the Opole Voivodeship:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neudorf

How might I determine which might have been referred to as "Royal" Neudorf?

Much appreciation for your help.

Hi Tish

This seems to be the place. (Cf. attached map.) It is part of the town of Opole. Nowa Wieś Królewska translates as New Royal Village. The name of the street is probably no longer Oppelner as that is a Germanic name.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Thank you Dave,
Google says it is a 47 minute bike ride from Tarnow to Nowa Wies Krolewska. Since 2x Great Grandfather was a wagoneer, that sounds like it is in the realm of possibility!
Thank you for interpreting those details into a map location.
