I´m looking for any information related to the family Peták.
My grandfather´s name is János Peták (John, 1899-1967) his wife was Maria Raska (or Roska or Raskó). They lived in Benedeki (Benedikivicz / Mukachevo) in current Ukraine until 1942. Then they moved to Mezohegyes, Hungary. He had 1 brother, György (Jurij??) and 3 sisters: Ilona, Anna and ?? (MAria?) György had a daughter called Magda (Magdolna) who married to Vologya in Munkacs (Mukachevo). Sister Anna married to András Lakesz (?)in Benedeki. The name of father of my grandfather was Janos Petak as well. According to family remembering, he (great grandfather) went to the USA before WW1, leaving the family behind. Also a brother/sister of my grandfather went to the USA, but I don´t know who. The storytelling says that one of the Petáks had a paper mill in Chicago. Also they might have been involved in some mining work. My grandfather had 7 childen: Ilona, Anna, Maria, Margit, Iren, Janos, Andras.
I have information on the family left in Hungary, but no records on the ones that went to the USA.
