ZOLDHELYI =GREEN #general

IN 1921 Jalos ZOLDHELYI entered Ellis Island, age 15 >from Hungary. He
subsequently took the name Louis GREEN. What is the meaning of his
original surname? (I know that the first part ZOLD = Green.)
Also, his mother possibly used her maiden name on her immigration
application. I can't remember which country has been mentioned where
the married women used their maiden names for immigration purposes.
Was it Hungary?

There is a character Amalia, Mali for short, in Diane

register and on an 1851 Jewish census conducted by
the village's rabbi, she
was listed as Ester [sic]. Another document shows
her as Eszter M.. In her
village (Tolcsva) Hebrew names were not recorded in
the birth registers

not possible to know with certainty. My best guess
is that her Hebrew name
was either Eszter or Eszter Malka, since the two
names have historical

a follow-up question
might be: does Mali come >from Malka or Amalia? I,
