Bretchin #general

Joel Ives <jives@...>

In response to Mitchell Silk's question on the location of Bretchin.
"Bretchin" is the yiddish name for "Bohorodczany." Bohorodczany is a
city that is adjacent to Nadvornaya which may explain why Mitchell's
ancestor mentioned it in his letter.

In the early 1900's the Bohorodczany Society met in New York City in a
building that they called "Bretchin Hall."

My ZANKEL family originated in the city of Bohorodczany, in Galicia,
Austria Hungary. Today the city in located in the Ukraine.
