My name is Gabriel Joseph Berta. I was born Gabor Jozsef Fodor (IX district Gyali street) in Budapest in 1953, and was consquently adapted by relatives in Canada, by the name of Berta. My mother was Gabriella Puha and died in 1959. My father Jozsef Fodor fled the country in 1956, leaving me with my grandparents, who raised me until my adaption to the Bertas in 1967.
I would very much like any and all possible information about my father, if anyone has any. I know he immigrated to Australia, married and had two daughters as far as I know. We kept in touch until my adaption to Canada, after which I lost contact, which was my fault, young and stupid... My father's mother lived in Kassa (Kosice?) in Chechoslovakia where I remember visiting her in the summer months.
I am going to explore your site - I never realized there were that many Fodors. I just stumbled across this site searching for the Fodor's Guide to the Caribbean...
