When you study European history, you will find, that
Germany and Prussia NEVER were part of Holland. It
however had places in Prussia, which had
"Holland" as part of the town's name. In German, homesteading
in a previously forested area is called a "Hauland" and
in eastern provinces of Prussia, it is called
a "Holland" .... Thus, if a record says something
about a "Holland" in "Prussia", it refers to
such a settlement....
