Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: New Hungarian data in the databases #hungary

To Sarah and everyone who participated in any way:

The new entries >from Nagyvarad helped me solve mysteries that I've been =
working on for 20+ years.

My family's oral history and written memoirs left out the married =
surnames of my ggf's two sisters,
who were born in Luncsoara (Lokk) but lived with their husbands and =
children in Oradea (Nagyvarad).
The new data confirm that one of them married a Herskovits, and revealed =
that the other one married
an Openheim.

Now to look for their descendants, and hope that some of them survived =
the Shoah or emigrated before
it was too late.

And I'm just getting started...Kassa is my next "destination."

With much appreciation,
