Locating Kuzmina #hungary

In 1915, when my grandfather Herman Notovics was living in Gyumolcsenes
,Szilagy ,Hungary (now Plopis, Romania, 47 35/23 46), he stated on an
identification paper that he was born in Beregszilvas in 1853. The map
division of the library of Congress could not locate any such town. My
Romanian researcher, Dr Gyemant found 3 records that stated that Herman was
born in Kuzmina (Kozmina, Kazmina). Dr. Gyemant said that this is now in the
Ukraine. But there are many towns north of Plopis with names similar to
Kuzmina. Any ideas on how I can pick the correct one, with perhaps a
connection to "Beregsilvas"?

The two towns are one and the same; Beregszilvas is just the Hungarian name.

Beregszilv=E1s was in Bereg County, which was between M=E1ramaros and Szabol=
cs=20
Counties. Beth Long is correct, they are the same, Kuzmino is the Russian=20
name, now it is in Munkacsevo County.
