Re: Klein/Kline Research #hungary


I almost positive I have found the town/village where Ignatz Klein 1864-1934 (aka Kline) was >from in Hungary. I located his application for Naturalization to become a US citizen. He listed his town as BAKOS-ER HUNGARY. I found the location in Borsod Abauj Zemplen Meghe/county. The location: latitude: 48.08333 N---and the Longitude is 21.25 E.

It is 108.3 miles ENE of Budapest. Also, the shape name for the Gazetteer is BAKOSER.

On further research it appears the village name must have changed to Miskolc (It's very confusing!) However, I want to confirm this village or area as to where Ignatz Klein/Kline was from. He changed his name >from Klein to Kline when he came to the US in 1882.

To all Jenners---is there anyone who might know more about this town/village and also where I might find the county/meghe records for further research? Like so many novice genealogists I don't know where to go next. I would like to find if there might be any Klein family or ancestors in this area or thereabouts and if they survived after WWII. Thanks so much. Donna Kline
