Karnas to Karnash to Karnish in Omaha

Posted: 1131501166000
Classification: Query
My relatives came from Poland in 1897 and settled in Omaha, Nebraska. The name was Karnas when they came over. Then today I find my grandfather's draft card with his name spelled Joseph John Karnash. His birthday of Feb 23, 1897 checks out and my great grandfather, Henry(also spelled Andrei, Andrew and Andrjez). They lived in South Omaha. The name was changed for good in 1920 to Karnish. On the draft card it lists his birthplace as Bahorz, Galacia(Galicia) Poland. Does anyone know what this translates to in todays Poland. I cannot find a Bahorz, Poland in Map Quest.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Don Karnish
