    Thanks for stopping by at my blog! Cheers for Hungarians 🙂 Genealogical research is not easy since most of our archives are not online yet. I am struggling with that too, and I do read the language…
    Happy A to Z!

      Ha! Odd that you speak the language yet you struggle as well. Having genealogical info online would be awesome. But again, I probably would have issues with translation. Here’s what I know:

      My Paternal Grandmother’s family is Hungarian Gypsy. Her Grandmother’s maiden name is Irene Bero. Irene’s father’s name is Gilbert Bero who married a Judith Docs. This is my brick wall at the moment.

      So far I have been most successful with Judith Docs. I have learned that in Hungarian, “J” and “Y” are interchangeable. And Hungarians do not have the “th” combination. So her name, very well could have been Judit or Yudit. Now, I have found a 1920 US Census that references a “Yucsi”, as well as the Ellis Island Passenger Documents for this family from Dombrad Hungary, and I am trying to find out if “Yucsi/Jucsi” is a diminutive of Yudit. If it is and I can prove it, then I will have Judith’s parent’s names.

      Unfortunately, Gilbert Bero is proving very hard to track down. He emigrated from Hungary in 1903 according to the 1910 US Census I found. However, I have been unsuccessful in locating his arrival documents. I found from his World War I Registration card that he was born in Szekely, Szabolcs, Hungary. I have also not come across anything that mentions his parents names.

      • Ping from Tarkabarka:

        J and Y are the same sound, but they are not interchangeable. Judit is the way we spell that name. Nicknames for it are Juci, Juli, Julcsi and Julcsa, although it might also have other versions in Romani. As for the point of origin, Szabolcs is a county (Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg, currently) within Hungary. Székely is the name of the village. Her last name (we put the last name first, so you might want to keep that in mind when you search) is spelled Dócs. I found a thread on a Hungarian forum where people with that last name from Szabolcs are looking for their name relatives:
        I don’t know if it helps, but I hope it does 🙂

    Genuine is good. It’d be weird to meet someone, and then find out they weren’t who you actually met. I love your phone case and lanyard!
