Hungary SIG #Hungary Suicide in Budapest #hungary


Dear h-SIGgers,
I've learned very recently through ViewMate, via expert genner Dora
Pataricza, that my great-grandfather, Meier (Miksa/Max) GATTMANN,
committed suicide at the age of 71, in 1882. Cause of death is listed
on the LDS film I viewed (642980) as "onakasztas fuladas" (please
supply diacriticals if you know Hungarian), i.e. self-administered
asphyxia (by hanging). After the initial shock and horror, I'm now
wanting to know more. Does anyone know if there are online newspapers
from Budapest for the days following 17 June, 1882? He lived in
District VI; last address was Sugar ut 59 (I believe the street no
longer exists; may be modern-day Andrassy ut)
