This is the story of Falesht. Bertha did come from Falesht, a small shtetl in the west of current Moldova, but moved to a nearby larger city, Beltz (also called Beltsy) when she married Hyman. He was from Beltz. In Beltz, they ran an inn, where they also lived. Their children helped them run the inn until 1910 when they moved to the USA. There is only one Jew left in Falesht, but Beltz has a quite sizable and thriving Jewish community.[7]

According to his 1920 census, Hyman and Bertha immigrated to the US in 1910 and were both naturalized in 1917.

Ellie Baker believes that Hyman and Bertha had one child more than is listed on this page.
