To Mica,

Just wondering if the tiny village might have been Vinne or Vinna Banka, now
in Slovakia, formerly in Ung County, Hungary. My uncle was also thought to
have been born in Vienna, but records show that he, too, was from village

My grandmother always said she was from Vienna. Wrong. Found a copy of her
birth record in some old family material, and she was actually born in a
tiny village in now Slovakia near the now Polish border. All that was
formerly Austro-Hungarian empire, so maybe she just thought nobody would
know the part of the world where her little village was, so she just said
the name of a big city that everybody would recognize.
