Post World War II quite a number of Hungarians moved
to countries that had
unfilled quotas for Jews.
Venezuela, Brazil, etc still have Jewish
communities. It is likely that
those Jews settled in (already) Jewish
neighborhoods. You may want to inquire there.

Subject: [h-sig] Hungarians to South
If anyone know anything about Hungarians moving to
South America, I woud
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?

to find Marika, who was born in 1942 and is,hopefully, out there
somewhere! Piroska, her second husband Bandi, andMarika may have left
Hungary for South America after the Hungarianuprising in 1956. How
