I don't think this should be viewed as controversy. It is instead a =
pooling
of information of how Hungarian Laws changed over-time, the affect on =
our
ancestors names, and legal documents. I think a compilation of such
information overtime will help us all in our research.

I am sorry, but I did not mean to stir up any controversy. My father =

that he and my mother had to get the birth certificate and marriage=20
certificate for their parents and grandparents. Anyway, my parents were =

in 1906 and 1913, their parents were born between 1870 and 1888, and =
their=20
grandparents between 1833 and 1853. Because the registrations started =
circa=20
1950, older records were difficult to obtain. After many years of =
research,
I=20
have been able to find only a few out of the sixteen.

mod.- when there aren't too many messages to the sig I think it wouldn't
be burdensome to have some off topic discussion (as some may consider
these messages). However, while we have a very liberal interpretation of
what is considered Hungarian Jewish family research, we should not stray
too far.LS
