RADICZINER family in HERTNEK, HUNGARY, now SLOVAKIA #austria-czech

Geoffrey Sea

My 3rd great grandparents were Ahron and Dvora Radicziner (Radetz, Radecky)) from Hertnek, Hungary, which is now called Hertnik in Slovakia. Both were born circa 1805. I am especially trying to find Dvora's maternal ancestors because Dvora, my maternal ancestor, carried an extremely rare mitochondrial haplogroup that is the subject of intense scholarly interest. (Our haplogroup is 12,500 years old -- an age almost unheard of.)  I'm also interested in anything on the history of the Jewish community of Hertnek, a town founded circa 1300 as part of Hungary's defense against the Mongol invasion.
