Re: Seeking WEISS family history in Hungary / Romania #hungary #romania

Hi Ronald,

Fortunately, for people who immigrated, we can often turn to U.S. records to determine parents' names. 

A photo of your great-grandparents' grave is on FindaGrave...

Ignatz's Hebrew name was Yitzhak ben R'Yisrael; Theresa's was Tamar bat R'Moshe. It's possible that their death records will show their mothers' names. Also check passenger manifests, which often mention the name of the nearest relative still in the "country whence [the] alien came."

My grandmother Rose WEISS was born in Maros-Vasarhely, Hungary 1898.  The town Is now Targu-Mures, Romania. She lived there with her family until they came to the United States in  1913.  Her father Ignatz WEISS was born in 1873  in Egresto Hungary.  Her mother Theresa SOLOMON was born in1877.  I don't know which town.  I can find no records  of her family in Hungary/Romania.  I am especially  interested in finding any brothers and sisters my great grandparents had.  I would also like to find who their parents were.  My grandmother came to the United States with her immediate family. I do not know if any of my great grandparents brothers and sisters came to the United States. I appreciate any help that I can get.           Thank You.
