Biography

I think most peoples' interests in family genealogy usually begin at family gatherings, like a funeral or reunion. I know that was the case for me because in three consecutive years, I lost a beloved grandparent. Each time the trek to the graveyards during the funerals brought me to headstones surrounding the grandparent and each time, most everyone did not know how they were related. I put the family jigsaw puzzle together by identifying everyone in the records office or church records and obituaries. My "Roots" are not very American with the earliest settler coming down the Erie Canal with barrels of wine from France in 1827.

WikiTree Status

I used to lead the Historic Photographs project at WikiTree and one can still find some amazing images and vote for them at Photo of the Week or you can LIKE one at Facebook.

Speaking of historic photography, I have a couple friends who set up a collection of incredible photographs.

One collection developed by Louis Takacs is taken from an underutilized genealogy resource - passports: Passport Research

The other one is at WikiTree by Rod Dubois: Historic Photography Cabinet

We have a new project that is pretty exciting for people with Polish Roots created by the talented Summer Binkley called the Poland Project. I lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.

I also lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry. I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other category projects at WikiTree. I can also help read Hungarian (Magyar) records or any records written in Latin if you need assistance. If you have a profile of a Hungarian ancestor here at WikiTree, let me know if you need sources. If you have found naturalization records or passenger records but can not understand/read the village for your immigrant Hungarian ancestor because of historical boundary changes, I will help pinpoint location.

I admin, with Nick, at the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary.

My Hungary surnames are:

Nagy, Stermenszky, Sebő, Rakai, Lorintz, Adam, Simon, Rozgany, Zsebik/Sebik, Farkas, Petö, Danko, Gyerus, Haluska, Vladikovsky/Hladikovsky, Polgaŕ, Söss/Sass, Plachetka, Chudi/Chudy, Kovacs, Mész, Szabo, Soka/Zsoka, Fabriczky, Istvanek/Istvanyik/Stephanik, Gothard, Skolnik, Pal, Gaal, Gäll, Császár, Svab.

Locations in Hungary (and some now in Slovakia):

Abaúj-Torna: Vendégi, Bódva-Vendégi (Hostovice), Jablonca (Silická Jablonica), Szin, Bódvaszilas, Szögliget, Varbóc, Hidvégardó, Derenk (extinct), Zubogy, Szádalmás/Almás (Jablonov nad Turňou), Körtvélyes (Hrušov). Borsod: Szendrő. Gömör: Krasznahorkaváralja (Krásnohorské Podhradie), Borzova (Silická Brezová), Rozsnyó (Rožňava), Végtelke (Slavec). Pozsony: Szekula (Sekule), Malaczka (Malacky).

Tree of Life

If you are lucky enough to be a genealogist, you are lucky enough. – Ruth Padilla ________________________________________________________________

"Genealogy is not about genes, it is about reconstructing family relationships, which are not necessarily genetic relationships. The 16th century heralds were doing genealogy long before Mendel discovered genetics." ~ A One-Name Researcher

"History remembers only the celebrated, genealogy remembers them all.” ~ Laurence Overmire
