I was born as an ethnic Hungarian in Dej, Romania (Transylvania!) in 1960. I moved to Budapest, Hungary 12 years ago and I am still living there. All I know about my Pavelka ancestors is that they Czechs and went to the North-Western part of the present Romania sometime in the 19th century to live and work as foresters for one of the Wesselenyi barons. Those were my father's grandparents, I suppose. My father was 47 when I was born and he had become too very tired and bittered by then (because of a 3 year-long "trip" in Russia as a POW after World War II, and the subsequent communist regime), that he never seemed too happy to tell us about the family.
Any ides where I am from?
