I am looking for information about my Great Grandfather's family:
Laszlo Varabak, born in Alsokaraszlo, Hungary, now Zarichchya, Zakarpats'ka, Ukraine, in 1898. We've found ship records of him arriving in 1913. His name was later changed to Charles Warabak.
His father was Mihaly Varabak, born about 1861,
and his mother was Anna Konnyu, born about 1869
We have a birth certificate, in addition to the ship records, and a 1920's Census, where he is identified as being from Austria-Hungary, but after this, by the time the 1930's Census was taken he seems to have started referring to himself as Czechoslavakian. And my family is no help, until we found and translated the birth certificate we thought he was Czechoslavakian too. Does anyone know why he might have done this?
