My Grandfather was Josef HERMANN b.1888 in Borostyanko, Hungary (now, after 1921 is Bernstein, Austria).
Having just now gotten information further back on his father and grandfather---am seeking any Herman(n) descendants today OF this particular family (esp. who still hold this last name today).
ALSO---seek to find BROTHERS of Samuel HERMANN and/or Brothers of Samuel's father, Josef who marries Borbala Krug.
