My gg-gm was Mali (Malka) Weiss, born about 1867 to Herman (Tzvi) Weiss and Czili (Silka) Deutsch. As per the birth records of Mali's children, Mali was born in Nagy Kalo (today Carei, Romania). I also found an 1863 census entry (Ecclesiastical Conscription 1863) at szatmar.us/db/videki szuletesek.html that shows the family living there. Herman & Czili and four known children:
- Regina (b. 1860)
- Marton (b. 1862)
- Mali (1867-1940), married to Bernát (Dovid Dov) Hercz 1860–1909
- Tereiza (b. 1869), married to Samuel Yeshayahu Frank
I do not know where Herman and Czili were from. I do know my gg-gp's are DIFFERENT than the Herman and Zili in the 1869 census of Ujhely. Based on Herman's tombstone in Nyirbator from 1900, I know that at some point the family moved from NagyKalo to Nyirbator and that Herman's father was Yizchok (Iszak/Ignacz). I did not locate the death record or tombstone of Czili, presumably between 1908 and 1920. Does anyone have family that might connect to mine?
