Re: seeking location of town
Until 1914 the area was part of the Austrian-Hungarian empire. After WW1 (1918) it became
Poland. Some of it became Russia & then now Ukraine. I use Google or earth if the shtetel was not destroyed.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] seeking location of town #advice
I am hoping someone can help identify a town.
I found the town Pzornasha, Austria listed on a naturalization record of a woman who might be a relative of mine. She was born in 1880 and immigrated to New York in 1896.
This town's name was typed twice, one time saying it was in Austria and the second time saying it was in Poland-Austria. I searched JewishGen town finder and google maps but did not find it.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you
