Hi Dena, German speaking people residing in Hungary (now Romania) was very common back then.There were over 1000 German villages in several area's of what was once Hungary.The main area was called the "Banat" - They were called Donauschwaben People. May I suggest you check out our new Donauschwaben Villages' Helping Hands Project : http://www.milleker.org/dvhh/http://www.milleker.org/dvhh/ There you may just find the help you are needing and read about the Donauschwaben People.
The name "MIKE" as a surname, sounds like it may have been changed, as many were.You ought to post his parents names also.
I will look around and see what I can find for you in the meantime.If you should want to write me personally: Mercydorf@att.net
If the previous responder meant SSDI : social security death index, that form will most likely only say born in Hungary.
