Re: location of Givozits? #general

Hello Saul,

My grandparents were born in Gwozdziec, Kolomea (in 1878 & 1887), Galicia (now Hvizdets, Ukraine).  Surnames that I'm aware of: JUNGERMANN, SPERBER, SCHECHTER, FRIEDMAN, STEIN.

The town had a population of less than 3,000 at the time. Chances are that our ancestors were neighbors or even relatives.

Have you taken a DNA test?  If so and you're interesting in seeing if there's a connection, please send me an email directly to benjamin.kempner@....  I'd need to know which company(ies) you've tested with and under what name.
