My late Grandfather Mihaly Bilcze came from Kiralyhaza Verocze Ugosca, now Korolevo Zakarpatskaya Ukraine to USA in early 1900s. Birth date 1882-84 . Mihaly may have studied as a priest Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic or Orthodox. Very educated. Just across the Tisza river from Kiralyhaza is Kis-Kupan. Unknown name of church which one of my family belonged
I am from the United States of America. My grandparents migrated from Ugocsa county. Kis-Kukullo county Transylvania in late 1800’s, early 1900’s. I wish to compile a family history of my Hungarian roots. Please accept my apologies. I found your name on the internet. By using your name or town, I thought that you may have some information. Or you may know someone that may help me. I have to find a starting point.
Kiralyhaza Verocze Ugosca, now Korolevo Zakarpatskaya Ukraine. Szokefalva now Seuca, Romania. . My Internet search for surname BILCZE returned nothing. My grandfather and his brother spelled the surname the same. Ellis Island arrival records to USA. BILECZ was suggested as correct spelling.
Grandfather (Mihaly Bilcze) from Kiralyhaza. Birth date 1882-84 . His brother Lazidlo came later to USA. Had a sister Anna that migrated to Chicago USA. Married Rishco (sp). Mihaly may have studied as a priest Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic or Orthodox. Very educated. His father was manager of a train station. His brother Janos was an officer in the Austria-Hungary military and I believe died in battle. His mother may be Ukrainian. Orthodox or Roman Greek Catholic faith.
The closest I came to a BILCZE in that area that someone sent me the phone number of a Bileczki Peter - 00380314341293 in Kiralyhaza. Could this spelling be close? Also a Mykola Bilcze in Korolevo.
Grandmother Maria (Mary,Meri) Jenei. Szokefalva (Kis-Kukullo county Transylvania) Birth date 1884-1886 Religion was Unitarian. She was a Sekley (sp). Her brother was in military also. I have no other information.
Would you, or possibly someone you know, be able to find church records of births, deaths, marriages of deceased relatives? Could you provide me with names of living people with BILECZ or BILCZE surname? I am willing to compensate you well for your efforts. This is not a joke. Very serious.
Please reply if you are interested. Need further information. Suggest someone I can contact.
Thanks in advance
