Mayer Family

Classification: Query


I'm looking for any information on Mayers that I believe may have lived in Neubeschenowa/Uj Besenyo.

My great grandfather Nicholas/Nicholaus Mayer was born May 4, 1886 and emigrated to Canada about 1899. Several documents I have are conflicting regarding his place of birth. Several documents state either Uj Bessenyo (or Bessenjo) but one states Temes Megye Transylvania.

In addition, a marriage certificate to his second wife states his father's name is Frank Mayer, born in Hungary, and Katherine or Katherina Keefer. My research indicates they were Catholic, of German descent, but I have no idea where to start looking.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
