The TownFinder only identifies towns with substantial Jewish communities. If what you are looking for isn’t there, try the JewishGen Gazetteer by going to the Communities Main Page from the TownFinder. The Gazetteer found 5 possible towns: one in Poland, two in the Czech Republic, and two in Croatia.

Amnon asked:
Anyone have any idea if Bulovitz is a correct spelling for a real place at the time, and/or what it would be today?

Try Bulowitz, today known as Bulowice
See: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulowice

I hope this helps

I was able to retrieve the Ghetto Theresienstadt Card File for my GGF Hermann GRONNER from the Arolsen Archives online search, with the original available from the Jewish Communities archive in Prague.

The card image lists his birthplace in 1857 as "Bulovitz", a community I cannot find in the JG TownFinder database nor in other web searches.  I'm guessing if such a community existed, it was likely in the former Austro-Hungarian empire because the family was German speaking and many of his children, including my grandfather Samuel GRONNER, were born in the Silesia region around Teschen (Cieszyn, Poland, and Tesin, Czech Republic today).

Anyone have any idea if Bulovitz is a correct spelling for a real place at the time, and/or what it would be today?
