Your Mala Berezna is actually selo/village Malyj Bereznyj. At turn of previous century it was called Kisberezna > Berezna jaras/district > Ung megve/county > Kingdom of Hungary< Austro-Hungarian Empire. It was hamlet size w/population of 749, predominantly German, Hungarian and Rusyn. The filial GC and RC Parishes and filial Jewish kahal were in Nagyberezna (today Velikyj Bereznyj).

TODAY Malyj Bereznyj=Малий Березний> Velykobereznyanskij raion/district > Zakarpatska oblast/region > Ukraine, latest zip 89040.

This past September your ancestral village celebrated its 585th anniversary. It was founded appx 60 yrs before Columbus discovered America.
