Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Wolofsza or Beresker #hungary


Hi David,

It is most probably a mispelling error of place names and/or a local name
for a town. If the town was in an area where Ruthenians or Slovaks were
present, they towns may have had alternate names in their language, often
also used by Hungarian Jews... And if they misspelled the Slovak name of the
town then it makes it even harder.
If I had to pick a town >from Subcarpathian towns, I would say, Wolovsza is
Voloc (now Volovets, Ukraine).
As for Beresker, I have no idea.

You could try to upload photos of records to ViewMate and then people could
