      Marilyn,

      Brezovica is listed in the LDS records as Brezovice nad Torysou. The village
      is just west of Lipany on the Torysa River. The LDS film numbers for
      Brezovica are: 1792031, 1792032 and 1792033. Most of the information filmed
      covers the years between about 1850 and 1900. Check out the LDS website for
      specific dates for each film. The film text is Latin and Hungarian. You could
      probably find the Torysa listings also at the LDS website. Torysa is just up
      river from Brezovica.

      As far as finding birthplaces for your great-grandparents, there is a
      possibility it was listed in the Bridgeport birth records. At certain times
      in the early 1900s they put down actual town names for the parents. So if you
      are lucky, yours might be one of these records. Also the names were
      misspelled quite often and finding entries for different children helps to
      figure out which town they were trying to spell.

      Good Luck,

      D. Taylor
