The WikiTree community welcomes you  !


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 when I was a teenager 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 newly deceased grandparent and each time, most everyone did not know how they were related. I put the family jigsaw puzzle together by identifying everyone through the records office, church records and obituaries.

My genealogical forays were furthered not only by photographing the gravestones of my family but also the Early American gravestones of rural Vermont and New York (I studied art history with an emphasis on early American folk arts). Later, I was lucky to finish a certificate program at Brigham Young in the early 80's and began to help other people with their genealogical queries on the side.

My roots are not very "American"; my earliest immigrant settler came down the Erie Canal with barrels of wine from France in 1827. I spent years reading French Microfilms for my own Alsatian ancestry. My mother is largely Eastern European so I branched out in microfilms from Hungary, Slovakia and Poland as well as Germany. However, my childrens' roots have taken me through American records, specifically colonial New Jersey and old Philadelphia. Recently, I tackled my impossible Irish ancestors with slow but steady research in their government records.


I lead the Polish Roots Poland Project as well as the Slavic Roots project.

I co-lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.

I lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry while I break bricks walls on my impossible Irish roots.

I am also an interim leader for the William Penn project as well as the German Roots Project.

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 genealogist Nick Gombash, the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary. I also have a rare Hungarian One Name Study registered with the One Name Guild. The Study is hosted by the Guild at their website Stermenszky One Name Study.

My back-up files ( upload 2016 ) are on RootsWeb. Stermenszky Files. I am still in process of moving them all to WikiTree.

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

Magda does Franche-Comté, France & Eastern European heritage research as well as some American research. Her Canadian roots are in Ontario. She is a historical records searcher interested in specific northeastern Hungarian villages, especially where she has a registered One Place study. [1]

Maggie, I have a copy of the naturalization papers on Ancestry. It was dated August, 1,1898 in Coffee county Tennessee. I don't know how to get them downloaded to another site. I just read the 8 pages but the only reference is William lll of Germany . The papers were hand-written by the county clerk and was fairly easy to read. Where do I go from here? Thanks for your help.

Part 2 According to my mother, both parents had been married before, so there were several children. During WW2 , there was still family over there, maybe a brother and a couple of sisters. Before the war, Grandma still wrote to some one there and they would take the letters to the local and have them translated, then do the same when they got a reply. Sorry, I've gone on and on, this is what I remember. If you can help I would be forever grateful. Thanks for listening.

Maggie I am not sure what I need or where from. I have heard Dresden and Darmstadt. I am not at all familiar with Germany. and haven't looked at maps. My grandfather came over when he was 16 . I think somewhere I have a copy of his naturalization papers . I would like a cop of a birth certificate or family papers. His name was Charles ( Carl ?) Gottfried Gerbig. He came on the ship Koln,I think in 1882 .,I believe to Baltimore. I know not all family stories are true. There was a story he was in school with the Kaiser's son ( grandpa's family were high, class? Anyway the boys got into a fight and grandpa left a mark on the other face. So his family sent him away. I am pretty sure his mother's maiden name was Waldeck.

Thanks Hun,

I do not care what anyone says, This is the very best team around. This team has dealt with homelessness, pneunonia, friends and family dropping in, plans changing, computer issues and more. We all still got in and sourced as best we could.

You are an amazingly awesome team and I am so blessed to have you all in Legacy Heirs. I hope to have you all back next year.

Hi, no relative of the Bollings here either. (mine are securely in England and not at all 'famous', ) I can't remember why I transcribed that record, possibly as a result of a G2G question.

Thank you for the hints about the parishes. I was only aware of Szögliget.

I'm very interested in Dr. Remias' work. I've looked for anything he may have published without success, so if you have something you can share it will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, Bialka records are available at FamilySearch, but you have to go to one of their affiliate libraries. There was one near me and they allowed me to download the images :)

Thank you for your Derenk index. Hopefully I will be able to trace back some of the names to Bialka.
