Herl'any, Slovakia #hungary

Matthew Kessler


Does anyone know of the town of Herl'any in Slovakia? I am trying to
research my ggg-grandmother Betti Klein SCHON who was born there in
1851 and died in Kosice, about 20 miles west, in 1917. I cannot find
any record of Herl'any in JewishGen. Apparently, it is well-known for
a cold water geyser: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Her%C4%BEany

Moderator: Herlany, Slovakia was previously Herlein in the Fuzer district of Abauj-Torna county. The Jewish
community was too small for Herlein to be included in JewishGen's Communities Database (only 10 Jewish
residents in 1877) but you can find this place in the JewishGen Gazetteer at
