Help locating Diczhaza / Dichaza #hungary


Alex Magocsi
 

I have been asked to assist my cousin in locating the referenced village which is / was reportedly in Borsod
megye. His aunt was reportedly raised there: I suspect sometime in the very early 1900s.

I used various Web based tools and one pointed me to some coordinates in the middle of
a field, west of Homrogd, Borsod m.
The coordinates are: 48° 17' 0" North, 20° 54' 0" East

Can anyone help us with advice?

Thank you
Alex Magocsi

Dichaza used to be a medieval village, then a homestead (tanya) near
Homrogd.

one thing to keep in mind with old (pre-1900)=20
spellings is that "cz" was simplified to "c", so=20
you are probably looking for "dichaza" (house of=20
dic). in the jewishgen gazetteer, it is indeed=20
listed at 48.17 N by 20.54 E. and then the=20
gazetteer offers the option of searching for=20
places within a 10-mile radius. (i find it=20
amusing that dichaza is 5.7 miles sw of kistanya.)

among the 229 places listed as being within 10=20
miles away, there are 6 with known jewish=20
communities, halmaj, szikszo, boldva, edeleny,=20
forro, and sajoszentpeter, of which some, like=20
szikszo and sajoszentpeter, are bigger than=20
others.
