Talsen location

Kornegay's who have been searching for the location of Talsen, pull up the following map: http://www.concentric.net/~bthal/cour1834.jpg
This is an old map with Talsi(Talsen in German) on it. When you pull up the map it is directly on the left across from the word Meerbusen.

It is located in Latvia. Latvia is a small country east of Russia on the Baltic Sea. There is a strong German population in the country.
You can pull up in Netscape search the words Kingdom of Talsen or Talsen, Kingdom of and it will pull up some sites with this map.
Another site: http://www.lib.utexas.edu/Libs/PCL/
Map_collection/europe/Latvia.GIF
This pulls up another map that I assume is a newer on.

a text on the township of Talsen is located at: http://www.concentric.net/~bthal/tals1893.txt

Of course all this needs to be proved.
If anyone has any trouble pulling up this site, please e-mail me at skypilot@airmail.net and I will attatch the sites to you. Donna
