I am researching a branch of the WOLF(S)THAL family that moved from
Galicia to Hungary in the early 1900's.
They lived in Komorn (aka Komarom, Komarno) and perished in the Holocaust.
In MyHeritage, I found an entry from 02.06.2016 where a researcher
named V. KOVACKS was looking for information about Rozalia WOLFSTHAL,
whose father was the musician Chune WOLFSTHAL, and who married Bela
The above marriage connection between Chune WOLFSTHAL's daughter and
Bella MESSINGER (if it can be indeed established) would be a
breakthrough discovery in our family research,
Clearly, the posting of V Kovacs from 2016 (which I just discovered)
holds promise in this respect.
I reached out to several sources, including the JewishGen H-SIG group,
seeking a contact to the researcher V KOVACKS, and/or info about the
above-mentioned marriage connection of the WOLFSTHAL and MESSINGER
families. Regretfully, I got no response on either points.
I would appreciate any direction/insight to help me get ahead with
this difficult research question.
