My great-grandfather Jakub Berkovic, believed to be an accountant/tax collector, lived in Szeklencze in Hungary (now Sokirnitsa in Ukraine). The family belief was that he had become ill, had been sent to Vienna for treatment but had died there at the age of 42. Although I have now discovered a burial record that appears to have the correct name and age and makes reference to the correct place of origin, there are parts I've been unable to translate with any accuracy and I am not entirely certain that I have the correct record. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Good luck.
