I need help reading THE TOWN on this marriage certificate of my great Uncle Louis Fogel. I cannot read this town in Galicia. His sister was my grandma (Rose Fogel)who married Jacob Ginsberg. Jacob was born in Baligrod. I was told that the Fogels' lived near Baligrod. The 2 witnesses are: Nathan Felder and Josef Barvo.
on Rose Fogel's marriage certificate her parents are Mose Fogel and Anna Puretz. Chane Puriz is the Yiddish, I assume.
It is obviously to me that the Rabbi Moris Morgenbesser must be related to Annie and his English was horrid! Thanks everyone!

Immigration records, naturalization records, and World War I and World War II draft registration records are your best bet for finding an exact birthplace.

Good luck,
Jesse
