This is so generous of you to offer help Art. My French research is looking for details of my Hirschfeld family that moved to Strasbourg, France. Anton Hirschfeld and his wife, Katarina Sessler Hirschfeld were both born in Galgocz, Hungary. This town is now Hlohovec, Slovakia. Anton was born in 1847 and Katarina was born in 1853. They moved to Strasbourg to help with the family's export-import business of goose liver pate. The Hirschfeld family traded with much of Europe from their origins in Hungary. Anton and Katarina had 10 children all born in France. Many years ago, I communicated with a gentleman who sent me some basic information, but no updates and information about modern descendants. Anton and Katarina are both buried in Galgocz. Katarina died on 2 Dec 1904 and Anton died on 26 Jul 1922. 

Thank you for any help you can share or any suggestions for a direction I can go to find out more about this family. 
Regards.
