Where is Petrisorul #general


Werner Hirsch
 

I have a record that says that a relative of mine, Ludwig DAVIDSBURG,
was killed on 22 Dec. 1916 during WWI in a battle at Petrisorul,
Romania. The record is hand-written but the name of the town is
*very* clear. I have been able to find a few references to this town
on the Internet, but none which indicate where this town is located or
what its name might be today. I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Dear Werner!
As I understand Your relative was a serviceman of Austrian or
German army who was killed in battle with Russian or Romanian troops.
Petrisorul now is Lunca Petrisorului - a city located in Province
Buzau, Romania - about 72 mi (or 115 km) North-East of Bucharest, the
country's capital town.

Regards,
Igor Holyboroda,
Lviv, Ukraine.
