Olscha near Mogilno, Kreis Mogilno, Posen

Olscha is a village near Mogilno, and south of the villages of Meirucin and Szczepanowo where my Haardwardts and Biedermanns lived. When Wilhelmine Haardwardt, my great grandmother, and her sister Amalie Biedermann gp Haardwardt traveled to Volhynia, they traveled with the Pommerenkes (their parents were dead). The Pommerenkes lived in Szczepanowo and Olscha prior to their departure for Volhynia. All later settled in the same village Anielowka.
