Subject: MUNK family of Nitra
I am researching my 3x great grandmother Theresia MUNK who was born c. 1817 in Hungary. I do not know for certain if she was born in Nitra but I suspect so.There is a book on the geneology of the Munk family >from Nitra
(Nyitra) (Nuetra), which takes the Munk family back to 1560 in
Frankfurt, Germany, written in Hungarian and Hebrew:
Author: Munkácsi, Bernát
Title: A nyitrai, nagyváradi és budapesti Munk-család valamint a
nyitrai, nagytapolcsan'yi, balassagyarmati, nagykanizsai, szentesi és
budapesti Felsenburg-család genealógiája;
Budapest : 1939.
It can be obtained through Inter-Library Loan >from Hebrew Union
College, 3101 Clifton Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220-2488,
Interlibrary Loan: (513) 487-3281
There is a Terez Munk in that book, but she married a Deutsch. There
are also Spitzer's in the book, but not the one you named.
I have a similar Munk ancestor >from Nyitra situation as yours. Ewa
(Eva) MÜNK, b. 1 November 1819 in Nyitra, married to Abraham
Landesman, b. 21 August 1815 in Nyitra. If anybody has any
information on Ewa and the Landesmans, I'd appreciate hearing about
