I've researched my paternal grandfather, Andras Janos Lovasz. I know he came to America through Ellis Island in 1907 at the age of 17. His father,(Andras?) mother, brother-Joszef, sister-Margaret, came several years before him. He was left with an uncle until he was old enough to come to America (so the story goes.) I have found several documents regarding my grandfather, but they all list his birthday correctly but not his place of origin. Some list Hungary, one lists "Kisteapos," or K. Kapos, another lists Austria. I would love to find more information. He has living relatives in Ohio. I want to make my father a quilt with his family origins on it. My Dad is Hungarian. Grandma was Hungarian and so was Grandpa. If anyone has any iformation or knows someone who does, I would greatly appreciate them contacting me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to anyone with information.
Grandpa dropped the "z" from our name when he came to Youngstown, Ohio.
