1/17/2010 Would someone be able to help with the translation of this letter. I believe it was written around 1940, perhaps to family in the USA.

1/17/2010 Can anyone make out the name of this town and county from the 1869 Hungarian Census? It is the birthplace of my ggg grandfather, Moses Edelman, b. 1789. It is something like Friso, Sarosu? In 1869, per the census, he was living in Dubine. Thanks!!!!
