Budapest Street Names #hungary

This is a wonderful example of why so many immigrants ended up with changed
names. The best I can make out is that maybe it is Erzsebet utca. There is
of course the famous Erzsebet Korut which is part of one of the Buadpest
"Rings". Certainly there is at least one Erzsebet utca as well, but
regrettably all of my stuff is packed.

The best way for you to confirm the residence of your ancestors would be to
consult the Budapest City Directory. By my recollection a copy of the 1907
book exists in the Ervin Szabo library in Pest. It is easy to find and you
can get entry fairly easily without having to speak Hungarian. You may have
to get a day card, but it will be free. Just ask for the Budapest room and
you will find the City Directories on the back wall.
