Re: Help with identifying a town off of a census

I think it says (or is supposed to say), Czernowitz, the capital and main city of the Austrian province of Bukovina. Today it's Chernivtsi, Ukraine. I should mention even if I'm right, people commonly would say they're from the nearest large town or the district capital instead of their small village, so your family could have been from Bukovina but not Czernowitz. I'd recommend you check out this database, it includes a ton of Czernowitz records that hopefully include members of your family: https://czernowitz.geneasearch.net/
As a general rule, when I'm trying to identify a town/city Jews lived in, I start with JewishGen's Town Finder. It's a great resource that can tell you plenty of helpful information about the different towns. Just to give you an idea what kind of stuff it has, here's the page for Czernowitz: https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1037073
I hope I was able to be of some help for you. Good luck on your genealogical journey!
