A cousin just sent me a birth certificate wherein the father stated that
he was born in "Ungarn". Was there a place in Hungary called Ungarn, or is
that the way a Hungarian would pronounce Hungary in New York City in the
late 1800's? Or what ideas do you have that could help? [ I am a total
twit when it comes to Hungary!]
Dear Martha,
Ungarn is Hungary in Yidish and in German. In Jerusalem there are the Batei
Ungarn, founded and settled by Jews >from Hungary in the 19th crntury.
