First, he says on it that he is >from Potzanka, Bereg Megye, Hungary. I can't
locate that town using Shtetlseeker, and I've never heard of it. Most of my

imagine Potzanka is near to there. Is anyone familiar with this town?

Micah,

If you are certain that Potzanka has been located in Bereg county, may I suggest
to locate village whereabouts by using Bereg's 1910 map.

from the index of Hungarian counties in 1910, select Bereg county:

When you have managed to locate Potzanka, follow now with the fairly modern map
(Soviet era) of Ukraine's Zakarpatskaya oblast' (Transcarpathian Ukraine) at:

to identify current Ukrainian name of Potzanka.

Good luck in your search.
