Ferenc (Francois) KRAUT was born in Pinkafeld, Hungary in 1907. He was
the son of Izidor KRAUT and Malvin STERN. Ferenc was a famous French
geologist, mineralogist, meteorite researcher and professor in the
University of Paris. The krautite mineral was named for him.
We know that my husband's great grandmother Tereza STERN had a sister
Malvin STERN, who married an Izidor KRAUT, and we're trying to determine
if this is the same family. Is anyone familiar with the geologist Ferenc
KRAUT or with the family of Malvin STERN and Izidor KRAUT? If so, I would
love to hear >from you.
