Re: Beckers Canada and Hungary
Hi, Barbara -
This is just a thought. Seeing as how I can't find any town by the name Bocar in what is Hungary today, I have the following question:Could the town you are looking for be Bocar (pronounced BOH-CHAR with the first h being silent)located less that ten km outside of Kikinda in what is today Serbia (but was Hungary back then)?If so, then Kikinda has a wonderfully preserved archive and you may find records on your Beckers there.Here's the address for the archive there:
Marsala Tita 3/1
For info on what complications you may run into when researching the YU archives as a foreigner please check out our ARCHIVES page at www.Serbia-Today.com.Also here are four listings from the online Serbian telephone directory for BEKER (that's how German-Serbian BECKERS now spell the name)in Zrenjanin.i listed Zrenjanin because it's the closest city to Kikinda and even closer to Bocar.Could they be relatives?Area code = +381 23

Enjoy and good luck!Let us know if there's anything else we can do (assuming, of course, that I may be right as to the Bocar that you are looking for)!
