Post World War II quite a number of Hungarians moved

Venezuela, Brazil, etc still have Jewish

those Jews settled in (already) Jewish
neighborhoods. You may want to inquire there.

Subject: [h-sig] Hungarians to South

If anyone know anything about Hungarians moving to
South America, I woud
very interested. Members of my husband's family
ventured out in 1920,
1921, but both girls got pregnant and their father
insisted that they
return to Hungary for the babies to be born. A
cousin of my husband's
insists there was another sister that lived in South
America that they
visited. I have not run across her birth record
unless she was born after
my husband's mother in 1900.

I am mostly interested in passenger records at this
time. >from what port
might they have sailed?

My father's first cousin, Piroska VERO was married
to Zoltan VERO b.
Nyirbator 1905. I recently discovered that his
parents were Abraham
WEISZBERGER and Szofia FELDMESSER >from Nyirbator.
Zoltan and his
brother Dr. Laszlo WEISZBERGER both died while
serving in the Hungarian
Labor Battalion. They had a sister Iren b. 1903
who survived and was
in Debrecen in 1945 after the war. She was
married to Jozef LESSER.

Piri and her 4-year old daughter Marika survived
Strasshof. After the
war they left Debrecen for Budapest and by
December 1949 Piri had
remarried to a man named Bandi(Andras), possibly
not Jewish, who had a
17-year old son.

My great-aunt Piri was born in Sepsiszentgyorgy,
Hungary, now Sfatu
Georgiu, Romania, to Roszi MOSKOVITS, my paternal
grandmother's oldest
sister, and Deszo MARKUS. The Debrecen records
incorrectly list Piri's
mother's maiden name as MARKOVITS rather than

I'm trying to find out what happened to Piri,
Bandi, and their
children. I recall that my father Elemer NEUMANN,
who was born in
Hungary, was
contacted by some cousins in 1956 and asked for
help with immigration.
I believe that the family could not enter the US
and may have ended up
in Argentina or Chile. Unfortunately, my dad died
in 1969 and I don't
have any other relatives,names,or records.

Please get in touch if this blended family sounds
familiar. Piri
(Piroska) would now be more than 90 and Bandi
would be at least that
Piri's daughter Marika (Maria) would be about 63.
This family was
living in Budapest in 1949 and may have emigrated
to South America
after 1956.

I'll be in Budapest next month and would
appreciate any suggestions
about how to locate this family.
