What do I think of Bersuenata? Obviously it was spelling with the Spanish pronunciation of what the registrar understood, or perhaps by the family in the closest way they could spell the town to a Spanish speaking person.

So....I checked the JewishGen Town Finder on your behalf, and this is what I found. There is a town that is now in the Ukraine that is currently called Broshniv-Osada or Broshnev-Osada. This is quite a close pronunciation and very good possibility, so you should probably check this out. Please let me know if you are unable to access this database.

Hope that this helps....Jo
