    X-No-archive: yes

    Nothing that was once in Hungary is in the Czech Republic; some of what
    was Hungary is now in Slovakia.

    So... there are many towns names Vysoka, and it's not clear which one to search in.

    I need to find information and paperwork on my great-grandmother, Karolina Hochfelder who was born in Vysoka, Hungary (now Czech Republic) on October
    4, 1894 or 1895. Married name is Caroline Zongora.

    I've found her on jewishgen with a link to her arrival records in Ellis Island:

    Departure: Bremen
    Arrival: New York - October 9th, 1910
    Ship Name: George Washington

    What I really need is her birth certificate, but I'm not sure which country to approach or how to request the documentation. Any help with direction to resources would be greatly appreciated.
