true birthplace of the Hamburger

The town of Hamburg ,NewYork has put up a sign advertising itself as the birthplace of the Hamburger . I had always thought that this honor belonged to Hamburg,Germany . I would hate having to call the town of Hamburg,NY a big lier ,but I’m not sure who is right. Does anybody have any knowledge concerning this important controversy ?

enough said

Crike! Get it right.

I live in Akron Ohio, same as the Menches descendents.

And the “hamburger” origin is gonna remain one of those impossible to prove things. IMHO.
