Dear Friends,

Has anyone heard of divorce in Hungary around the
turn of the century?
Here's my dilemma: Ernest Kardos, in a letter to my
husband, referred to
his sister "Vilma." In the passenger manifest in
1903 Ernest says his
contact in Hungary is his mother, W. KARDOS, and
he's coming to the home of
his brother-in-law, Jozesf Fodor. Vilma, or Wilma,
comes to the US in
1915,married, with two children . She refers to her
contact as her father,
Herman Kupferstein, and she is going to her husband,

In the 1930 census, I found Wilma with her husband,
Joseph Fodor and two
children. Also included in the household is "Fannie

Was Ernest's mother married twice?

Is it possible that W. Kupferstein (Cooperstein) was
also married to
Kardos? Is Wilma Ernest's half-sister? I have
ordered the civil registration
film at the Family History Center for Nyiregyhaza
for part of 1906 and
1907, but ths will still not tell me about divorce.

Can anyone answer my question?

Thank you to all,

Pat (New Hampshire)
