I am trying to help my husband Les SIMON find some information on his maternal grandparents and their families in Hungary. His grandfather Abraham Albert REVESZ was born in TEMESVAR (now TIMISOARA in Romania) 11/7/1861. He emigrated to Chicago in 1904 and lived there until his death in 1948. His family name originally may have been Rausnitz, Ransnitz or Rothfeld.
Terez (Fercz, Resi) ROZENBERG (or Rozenberg) was born in NAGYKERPEST, a (now Cornisesti, Romania) a tiny village near Timisoara. She died about 1899, probably in KECSKEMET where my husband's mother and her two older brothers were born between 1892 and 1896. The only other information I have about her is that her daughter Bess SIMON wrote her motherĂ¢??s name as "Theresa Bosa Briar" in our son's baby book. She definitely died in Hungary.
The information we have is >from public records in the city of Kecskemet. We have good information on Abraham beginning with his emigration >from Europe. We do not, however, have the name of his second wife. Her maiden name may also have been SIMON.
