Thanks for the suggestions.

Here is why I posted on Styria board.

Looking at the image of the manifest,
Nationality: Hungary
Race: German
Last permanent residence: Hungary, Sagorenz
Nearest relative: Father Johan, Sagorenz Steiermark
Place of birth: Austria Sagaretz

Steiermark suggested Styria district.
Listing of Austria as place of birth agrees with listing of Austria as place of birth on marriage license and 1920 and 1940 censuses. I have no other documents that list Hungary as place of birth other than this manifest.

The town may actually be in current day Slovenia since Maria's 1930 census record lists Yugoslavia as place of birth. Family lore says that her father, Johan, was mayor of Ptuj.
