A list of Viennese inhabitants around 1800 shows someone born in RETHE,
Ungarn. Shetlfinders does not show any Rethe. It does show 3 different
towns called Ret. Would appreciate comments on the location, and current name of the Rethe town.
Rethe, (in Hungarian it has an accent over the first e, in Hebrew it is Resh Eyin Tet Hey Eyin) is Reca in present day Slovakia, pre-WW1 Hungary.
