Shalom all,
My grandfather's brother Arnold Vadasz Jacobs was born
March 4, 1880 in Velkekapusawy, Hungary. He came to
the US on Dec 2, 1923 >from Cherbourg, France, abord
the Aquitania to New York City. In Hungary he was an
attorney. I think he was a restaurant cashier in NYC.
He lived at 121 92nd Street. He died in 1970.

IF HE LIVED IN NEW YORK (MANHATTAN) THE ADDRESS IS
EITHER E OR W 92 STREET AND MORE THAN LIKELY EAST.

I know less about grandpa. His name was Kuby Jacobs
born 1867 ungary, died 1961 in Oklahoma.

Can anyone help me locate Velkekapusawy?

THIS IS NOT A HUNGARIAN BUT A SLAVIC NAME. THE
HUNGARIAN NAME WOULD BE "NAGY,,,,,,,,,,," DOUBLE
CHECK USING ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION SUCH AS PASSPORT,
NATURALIZATION PAPERS, ETC



Was the name Vadasz Jewish?

THIS IS NOT A PARTICULARILY JEWISH NAME, THOUGH IT IS
POSSIBLE THAT SOME JEWS BEAR SUCH A NAME. IT IS A VERY
COMMON HUNGARIAN NAME AND IT MEANS "HUNTER".

Could Kuby be a diminuative for Jacob?

KUBY/KOBI COULD BE A NICKNAME FOR JACOB/JAKAB

Where shall I look next?

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
