Hello,

I miss the German names for places in today's Poland in the database, although they are present in the linked Wikipedia articles:

http://www.geonames.org/3092390/malowice.html -> "Małowice [mawɔˈvit͡sɛ] (German: Mallwitz)" (Wikipedia) is not found using the German name.

This is very important for genealogy.

There is also a genealogy wiki that could be integrated into GeoNames: http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Mallwitz
As a programmer, I could help with the takeover.

Regards

Sebastian
