Looking for somewhere in Poland - please help.

I will be visiting RAdom on October 13th for 4 days to search
for evidence of my grandparents who left in 1904 and 1913 for London,
England. I have found evidence of a birthplace on a passport which is
Village Obozneko. Could you tell me how to find this village please.
Thank you

Re: Looking for somewhere in Poland - please help.

Are you sure it's "Obozneko"? l couldn't find the village but there is a Polish word "Oboznego" which I don't quite understand. It sounds like it means "of the camp/colony/commune. Could they have lived somewhere comunally?

I'll ask my friend from Radom when he gets back from Ibiza.

Re: Looking for somewhere in Poland - please help.

My friend from Radom wonders if it might be the village of "Odrzywó". lf the document is handwritten or copied from handwritten this might be the place.
