Dear Genners,

My query about  Chaja APOTHEKER whose daughter Dora REIZMAN died in 1921 in

Tecso/Tyachiv (sub-Carpathia) ended with positive results. It is due to some constructive

 suggestions from several Genners who put me on the right track. I feel obliged to share with you

some hurdles I had to overcome which may help some of you in the future. I found several variants of

her daughter’s name on the “Sub-Carpathia Jewish Births” list: REIMAN Dvora, REINMAN Debora,

REIMAN Debora, REIMANN Debora, REIMAND Bora/Roza. Her birth place came also in several

versions and locations: Isztuk or Isztruk (no idea what it means), Lisko or Liska, Galicia and on

“Maramaros Vital Rocords Births” list I found Liszka-Gaczorszag. Well, the correct spelling is

REINMAN and she was born in Lesko, Galicia to Chaja APOTHEKER who is related to my wife’s

family as I suspected. Gaczorszag is the Hungarian name of Galicia. Thanks to all those who helped.

Hi Jacob

Isztuk or Isztruk may refer to one of my towns - Ustrzyki Dolne - which was called Istryk by the Jewish residents.  My grandfather always called his hometown Istryk.  The town was in the Lisko district.

Here is the page on Ustrzyki Dolne:

Hope this helps,

Técső (Tyacsiv) in Transcarpathia , that's in Ukraine today. 
The records are held in the Ungvár (Uzhgorod) state archive and are available from 1870s up to 1946.
