Hello Hungarian SIG:
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for many years,
having started learning some family stories >from my Mother. I consider myself to
be beginner in doing Hungarian Jewish Genealogy research.
I am researching my father's maternal line, including SCHATZ/SACZ, SCHERMER/SERMER
and WEINGARTEN (Satorlja-Ujhely) and LAZAROVITZ (Marmaros Szighet) families. The
SCHERMERs had their roots in Moravia before they moved east in the early-mid 1800s.
I live in Irvine, CA, USA.
My native language is English, and I also can read Spanish, French, and German
(with some experience reading Kurrant).
I consider myself a fluent computer user. My experience in using the Internet is
I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all of my grandparents,
all of my great grandparents and most of my great great grandparents. I have information as far back as some 5G grandparents. My Hungarian branch came over in the late 1880's (great-grandparents)
My primary research goal now is to find out information my Hungarian family >from
Marmaros Szighet - there are still some gaps I need to fill in my great-grandparents' families. My original source (paternal grandmother) provided some information many years ago, but it was sketchy at best with many gaps.
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 450660.
The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF (JewishGenFamily Finder) are as listed above.
