What town in Hungary was Henry born in? This was downloaded from a commercial website. They interpreted the town name as Epinerca. I can't find anything close to that on shtetlseeker and am hoping for some creative ideas. It is quite possible that this town is near Ungvar, Hungary (which is now in Ukraine under a different name.) For comparison purposess, you'll notice there is an "E" on the very bottom of the application "East" 63rd St. If you'd like an enlargement, please let me know.
Thanks!

4/17/2008 Hi Elaine,

To be creative, and possibly find what you are searching, try going to the JewishGen site and look under the family name. You might want to start with the narrower category of Hungary, or you may want to broaden out to any country (since borders have changed so much).

Once you look through these lists, you might find other people looking for the same family, and they might have listed town names that could be possibilities.

Another suggestion is to look under Ungvar to see if you find any people with the same family name.

Hope that this gives you some avenues to persue. I keep looking at the town's name, and I am unable to really get a good grasp on it for you.....Jo
