My maternal grandmother, JULIANNA KISS [but changed to "Kish" in the U.S.], was born in Agard, Zemplen megye, Hungary, 8 August 1885, the dau. of Joseph Kiss (1849-1909) and Julianna (Pataki) Kiss (1856-1931).Agard is now known as "Zemplenagard" and is located very near the present-day borders of Slovakia and the Ukraine.
Through the Mormon microfilm collections, I have been able to trace many of my grandmother's lines back to the early 1700s. If anybody else has Kiss roots from that same village, I would like to make contact and exchange information.Other allied families: Marczi, Tott, Kajibas, Fedor, Vassily, Lukacs, Sukaly.
My grandmother m. 1st, 1908, Stephen Joseph Balint (1872-1915).She then m. 2nd, 1920, my grandfather, Michael Lazlo Szucs (1885-1964), a native of Battonya, Bekes megye, Hungary.She and my grandfather lived for many years in Bridgeport, CT before moving to California.My grandmother d. 22 Feb. 1984, age 98.
I would also be interested in making contact with any descendants of my grandmother's brother, Michael KISH (1887-1956).He lived in Bridgeport, married Mary Anna CHEHAK, and had one son Joseph.We believe there are descendants of his in Florida but we have lost track of them.
