My wife is part of the Horowitz-Margaretten family, a portion of whom hail
from Miskolc. Their name was Weiss(man).Any connection?

Subject: [h-sig] Fw: INTRO-researching WEISS, HOCHEISER >from Miskolc
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
About 5 years. I consider myself to be a novice at Hungary Jewish
I live in Florida.
I consider myself advanced in using a computer and my experience
With the Internet is extensive.
I have identified the names of my grandparents and great grandparents,
but am having problems making further headway.
My primary aim for researching my great grandparents now is to locate
Their origin in Miskolc , and to determine their immigration
Information to the USA
The family names that I am researching are
WEISS,Joseph, b. Pamhagen (?) Austria, immig to USA >from Miskolc abt 1880
settled St Paul, Mn
HOCHEISER, Henry (Honry), b. abt 1854, immig >from Miskolc in 1880, settled
in St Paul Mn.
Any assistance in suggesting avenues of further investigation would be
Bonita Springs Florida
Moderator: It always helps if you tell us which resources you have already
checked. Were you aware, for example, that JewishGen's All-Hungary Database
includes VEISZ names >from Miskolc in both the 1828 and 1848 Census?
