I have found two places in North Germany called Papendorf. One is

near Warnow, the other near Pasewalk. Both are in the state of

Mecklenburg-Vorpommen (MVP). The second is very close to the border

with the state of Brandenburg, which was the heartland of Prussia.

There may be other places in Germany called Papendorf, including

some in territory transferred to Poland and the Soviet Union in

1945.

PS. I see that Pasewalk was in Prussia from 1720-1947, when

Prussia was dissolved. It was first annexed by Brandenburg in

1676.

Another alternative that should be checked out, or at least

given some consideration, is created by adding a second P to

create Pappendorf in the current state if Sachen. You can locate it

by drawing a line between Leipzig and Dresden, and a second line

due South of Berlin. The intersection is Pappendorf.
