Looking for people from Hertsa

Daniel Horowitz
 

Dear friends,

I am looking for descendants of people from Herta - Hertsa
(https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Community.php?usbgn=-1038957) a
small town south of Czernowitz and some times considered Romania, part
of the Dorohoi county)
I plan to visit the town as part of a family trip in April to Ukraine,
of course I plan and hope to get some records of the Jews before WWII,
and photograph the cemetery - supposedly in a very bad share because
of the growing jungle.

If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me privately.

Best regards
Daniel Horowitz

My great grandfather was from there. His name was Adolph Abraham Greenberg. He was born about 1883 and immigrated to America in 1907 with his fiancee family named Markowitz who was from neighboring town of darabani. According to research I had done their last name was different in home country. Instead of Greenberg it was Apreive or similar spelling. Not sure if the information I obtained is accurate. On yadvashem there is a whole bunch listed on POT's that were from Hertza, but can't make any connections or find any descendant to ask questions. So pretty much my Greenberg line remains a mystery.
