Re: Where is Boscovitz? #hungary

The main possibility in the Czech Republic is Boskowitz (now Boskovice) in Moravia.
The Jewish community there was rather large in the early 1800s.

I found an interesting entry in Peter Hidas'"Jewish Who's Who in (Buda)Pest. There is a Wolf ENGEL, peddler, born in Boscovitz, in Pest since 1821. Where is Boscovitz? I see some possibilities in the Czech Republic, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Moderator VK: Check out Nagy Bochksa, which is now divided between Romania and the Ukraine. Leslie Gyi has more info at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/poienile/Bocicoia_Mare.htm
Other possibilities are Bokske in Tolna megye and Bocska in Zala megye.
