to either Weiss (or Weisz) or Alter >from Poljana (Polyana) =
I'm also looking for anyone who might have be related to people with the =
surname Katz >from Kadjanov (6 kms. >from Munchas) in what was =
Czechoslovakia between World War I and World War II but is now in the =
Ukraine (and belonged to Hungary during WWII).=20

lived there until the war. Their surname was Weiss.=20
ps I assume this is the right specialist group given the map changes =

Moderator: Yes, you have found the right SIG. H-SIG covers areas that were part of the Hungarian kingdom before the end of World War I. this includes Munkacs, which became part of the new nation of Czechoslovakia following the Treaty of Trianon and is now Mukaceve, Ukraine. Have you checked the JewishGen Family Finder and the All Hungary Database for these names?
