I was confused about where Vasarosnameny was. Thank you and the others who
have corrected me.
How did you get the birth certificate since the records have been moved to
Beregszasz in Ukraine. I have written to the Jewish community there and am
awaiting an answer.

Vasarosnameny is still in Hungary. I visited a few years ago as my paternal
grandfather was born there. Not much remains of the Jewish cemetery. While I
never looked for records >from that town (since the family has roots
elsewhere) I do have a copy of my grandfather's 1917 birth record that was
certified in Vasarosnameny in 1947.
