|Welcome to our family site. Both of my mother and father's parents were Hungarian, so I have been very busy with my Hungarian heritage, which has led me to many unexpected places.|
My maternal grandparents are Balint (aka Walter) Galgoczi, son to Stephan and Rosalia (Horvath) Galgoczi and Rosa (aka Roza, Rosalia) Fejes, daughter to Janus/Janus and Rosa Duakasz (sp.) Fejes from Gyor-Moson-Sopron, Hungary from the settlements of Koronco and Sopron. Grandpa Galgoczi also had a brother, Andras (Andrew) who came to the US. In the US, the Galgoczi families settled in East Chicago, Lake County, Indiana; Rosebush/Mt. Pleasant, Isabella County, Michigan; and parts of Ohio. The Galgoczi children in the US married into the Salchert, Szabo, Benko, Oplinger-Graham, Ball, Horvath, and McDonald family lines.
I am researching the Voros/Woros surname, in particular, Elizabeth (Horvath) Voros who married Nicholaus Woros and her brother, Andy (Andras/Andrew) Horvath who married Teresa Schreiner; both marriages occurred in South Bend, Indiana.Andrew (Andy) Horvath and his sister, Elizabeth (Horvath) Woros are aunt and uncle to my grandfather, Walter (Balint) Galgoczi.Andrew Horvath married more than once.
I am researching Imre (Emery) and Anna (Racz) Kertai, from South Bend, IN, and Raba Patona, Gyor County, Hungary.Anna Racz married Imre (Emery) Kertai, son to Andras Kertai and Terezia Roka.Anna is daughter to Istvan Racz and Marie Kaloczi (with a “K”).Anna (Racz) Kertai is related to my maternal grandmother, Roza Fejes..

In a ship manifesto, grandmother Anna listed her place of birth as Blagorodovac, Pozsega County,Hungary (Slavonia). In the U.S., the migration pattern has been traced from Conway, Pennsylvania; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and South Bend, Indiana.
