Two resources for finding towns in "greater Hungary" are:

1) which has a several gazetteers of Hungary
(a searchable 1913 one, as well as 1882 and 1995).

2) which is a database
of place names >from what used to be part of Hungary. (It's in Hungarian,
but fairly simple to operate.)

Unfortunately, Szent Márton was quite popular in Hungary, and that name
appears all over. But there is a Borsodszentmárton in the Sajószentpéter
district of Borsod County. also known as Bu"kkszentmárton, it is about
20 km south of Ózd. The Hungarian name for Martinová was Mártonfalva
(or Mártonfala), in Rima-szécs district of Gömör megye, when it was part
of Hungary, and is about 15 km north of Ózd.

Rimavska Sobota). My father's aunt Franzi Berger married (around

10 miles >from Shirkovce.

When searching the LDS tape that contains data on Ozd (births
1868 - 1895), I found two children (Herman b. 1871 and Franczi
b.1873) born to Jozef Berger and Rozi Konig that lived in Szt.
Marton. I am trying to locate Szt. Marton.
