Hello. I am reposting this thread to the Nyitrai Board. I am looking for information on the family of Michael Nyitrai and Mary Bodner from Forro, Abauj, Hungary.
They had a number of children. Three came to the United States and settled in the Toledo, Ohio area. They are:
1. Andrew Nyitrai (Nov 17, 1889 - Mar 1963)
Immigrated in 1905 to Toledo Ohio from Forro
His first name was also spelled Andras and Andreas. I've seen his last name spelled Nyitrac.
2. Mary Nyitrai (married Steve Seles)
3. Theresa Nyitrai (married John Gottfried)
Two children who never left Hungary (that I know of)
6. ??? There may be more siblings in Hungary
Andrew (my great-grandfather) married Elizabeth Veres in Toledo Ohio in October, 1913. They had six children and per the 1920 census, the family name was spelled Nyitrai. Andrew and Elizabeth changed the 'i' at the end of their name to 'y' sometime after 1920. Their children are Andrew Jr, Margaret (Breitner), Mary (Siwajek), Helen (Petraska), Edward and Robert.
I would hugely appreciate any information or tips. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
