Maybe he lived there before he lived in Hungary. Maybe his wife was >from
Bolechow. There are any number of possibilities.

Quoting Ukraine SIG digest <ukraine@lyris.jewishgen.org>:

I have recently found my grandfather's kiddush cup presented by the Erste
Bolechower K.U.V., a landsmanshaftn (mutual aid society) in Newark, NJ in
1931 The 1910 US census says he immigrated >from Hungary (Magyar) in 1883,
but Bolechow is currently in the Ukraine and formerly in Galicia
(Austria-Hungary). Did he have to be >from the specific shtetl in order to
be a member of the society? Any help sorting this out would be appreciated.
