Hi J, did he die in 1921 or 1926? Thanks.

Did you ever see this?

The The Kossuth nephews in America by Stephen Beszedits. Toronto, Ontario, Canada. (2011)

posted by Maggie N.
No, I hadn't seen it. I'm going to try to get in touch with the author, to see what he thinks about my theory on the fate of the elder Zsulavszky Zsigmond. (There's an email address at the end. It's only ten years old....)

Super sleuthing, J, on that Zvrskovecz/Huszar mystery!

J., do you read Hungarian. Is the Hungarian Translation of this page adequate?


posted by Maggie N.
Maggie, yes, I'm fluent in all forms of Hungarian, but the English part of the page is a bit confusing to me, so I'm not sure if the translation is correct or not. (Either the English is saying the same thing multiple times, or I'm missing a distinction somewhere.) Also, is the stuff in curly brackets supposed to be translated ("member" -> "tag")?

In the interest of avoiding repeated effort, is there a well-formatted and clearly-written project member page from a different project that we could copy? Once the English is as clear & clean as we can get it, I'll be happy to translate it all.

Thanks for looking it over. I will work on the English part of it and l let you know when it's done. It's a new project so I need to plan it out better.

Thank you so much for all the Lichtman records and help. Your question regarding Bernat and his wife Hani naming a daughter Hani has an easy answer. Bernat's mother was also named Hani, so the daughter might have been born shortly after her grandmother's death and that would be who she was named for.
J, here's an example of a language portal:

The object is to translate the most important pages in Wikitree into your language so people who aren't fluent in English can utilize Wikitree.

Hi J, I'm sure you're very busy all the time, but have you considered making a Hungarian language portal? That would seem to be a logical next step to helping Hungarians utilize Wikitree. Just a thought! Hope you're enjoying your day :)

Hello J,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Yes! I knew Helmut would be a good person to ask about the Kurrentschrift and I see you're getting multiple responses. Hooray!

J, I am speaking on Sunday morning about Elizabeth Neumann's journal. It's just about three paragraphs in handwritten Hungarian. Do you have time to take a look?

posted by Karen Lowe
Okay, J. It's all yours now to work on. The WikiTree staff is changing all "Glossary" pages to Free Spaces so people can work on them (-:

I know that it looks like there are TWO Hungary Glossaries but the old category one will dissapear soon.
