Zablotow is currently known as Zabolotiv, Western Ukraine at
4828 2517. This Jewish community was located within Sniatyn
district in Stanislawow Province.

"Brezovica" - most probably Berezhnitsa (ex Bereznica) located
at 4817 2522, some 15 miles distance >from Zabolotiv.

So in May I went to visit Vienna and had the opportunity to visit the
Jewish Archives. While there I found out about two additional towns that I
am curious about.

1. Brezovica (spelling?) - Apparently my maternal grandfather's paternal
grandfather Michael Rothstein was >from that town however I can't seem to
find anything about it on any database.
The only instance I have found is on Wikipedia it lists it as a town in
Kosovo. So out of curiosity is anyone looking for Rothsteins >from that town
as well as Tarnopol. Is there some connection between the two towns? Does it
have a different name now?

2. Zablotow (spelling?) - This one might be a little easier mostly I was
just wondering if anyone was researching Tillingers >from this area that
would have moved to Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk....
