Austro-Hungarian empire. The *diacritics* are very important for a reliable
search. For example, Surte could be Su:rte with an umlaut on the 'u' and
this makes quite a difference in searching gazetteers and similar sources.
Now to the question
Szatmar (with an acute accent on the second a - Szatma'r) is today in
Romania and called Satu Mare. I couldn't find Surte.
Anna Salamonowitz was >from Surte Austria
| Hungary and Morris Meirwitz came >from Sztmar Austria Hungary.
