Very interesting !!!! Right on the same area of the map, SE of Wiznitz, are
Berhomete and Mihowa which are my primary towns of research of my maternal
ancestry -- surnames KAUDERER, BURG, ALTMAN, among some others.

I also found Vilyavche using JewishGen's Shtetl-Seeker.

In case anyone is interested, I recommend a powerful but free photo program
called Irfanview, which can be downloaded from . With
it I was able to resize and save the Bukovina map and print it all on one page.
I was able to then crop just the northern half -- which is of primary interest
to most of us -- and save it as another jpg file, and print that on one page
