My paternal grandfather was named Guyula (Julius) Gombos. He was born on 7 June 1887 in Zombor, Serbia. He died on 13 October 1952 in Sydney, Australia.

Borbola and Gyula married on 26 October 1920 in Hungary. They had one son, my father, Gyorgy (George) Gombos.

 They had a son probably amongst other children, named Gyula (Julius), my great-grandfather.

I wish you much luck in your quest. At the same time, may I suggest that you might not want to publish the exact date of your birth or that of any living person?  Sadly, identity theft can lurk anywhere.
