Re: Does anyone know this town? #records

Looks to me like Yurbrek, Russia. I searched for that in the JewishGen Communities Database using "sounds like" matching and came up with only one result: Jurbarkas, Lithuania ( modern name), which was Jurbarkas, Russian Empire when she was born. Other names listed for this town are Jurbarkas [Lith], Yurburg [Yid, Rus], Georgenburg [Ger], Jurbarka [Latv], Jurbork [Pol], Jurgenburg, Jurborg, Jurburg, Yorburg, Yorvorig, Yurbarkas. Note that all those initial J's would be pronounced in English as Y.
