Hungary SIG #Hungary Hungarians to South America #hungary

Patricia J Weisshaus <patjw28@...>

If anyone know anything about Hungarians moving to South America, I woud be
very interested. Members of my husband's family ventured out in 1920,
1921, but both girls got pregnant and their father insisted that they
return to Hungary for the babies to be born. A cousin of my husband's
insists there was another sister that lived in South America that they
visited. I have not run across her birth record unless she was born after
my husband's mother in 1900.

I am mostly interested in passenger records at this time. >from what port
might they have sailed?

As some of you may have noticed, I misstated my relationship to
Piroska MARKUS VERO. She was my father's first cousin, which would make
her my first cousin once-removed (NOT my great-aunt). Piroska's daughter
Marika is my second cousin. I would appreciate any suggestions about how
to find Marika, who was born in 1942 and is, hopefully, out there
somewhere! Piroska, her second husband Bandi, and Marika may have left
Hungary for South America after the Hungarian uprising in 1956. How would
I go about tracing Hungarian immigrants to Argentina and Chile during 1956-57?

My father's first cousin, Piroska VERO was married to Zoltan VERO b.
Nyirbator 1905. I recently discovered that his parents were Abraham
WEISZBERGER and Szofia FELDMESSER >from Nyirbator. Zoltan and his
brother Dr. Laszlo WEISZBERGER both died while serving in the Hungarian
Labor Battalion. They had a sister Iren b. 1903 who survived and was
in Debrecen in 1945 after the war. She was married to Jozef LESSER.

Piri and her 4-year old daughter Marika survived Strasshof. After the
war they left Debrecen for Budapest and by December 1949 Piri had
remarried to a man named Bandi(Andras), possibly not Jewish, who had a
17-year old son.

My great-aunt Piri was born in Sepsiszentgyorgy, Hungary, now Sfatu
Georgiu, Romania, to Roszi MOSKOVITS, my paternal grandmother's oldest
sister, and Deszo MARKUS. The Debrecen records incorrectly list Piri's
mother's maiden name as MARKOVITS rather than MOSKOVITS.

I'm trying to find out what happened to Piri, Bandi, and their
children. I recall that my father Elemer NEUMANN, who was born in
Hungary, was
contacted by some cousins in 1956 and asked for help with immigration.
I believe that the family could not enter the US and may have ended up
in Argentina or Chile. Unfortunately, my dad died in 1969 and I don't
have any other relatives,names,or records.

Please get in touch if this blended family sounds familiar. Piri
(Piroska) would now be more than 90 and Bandi would be at least that
Piri's daughter Marika (Maria) would be about 63. This family was
living in Budapest in 1949 and may have emigrated to South America
after 1956.

I'll be in Budapest next month and would appreciate any suggestions
about how to locate this family.
