Hi - I'm looking for information about the family of my great-grandfather, named Joseph Reha, born 23 January 1895. He married Borbola Lesku (b 1896, Ajak, Hungary), circa 1917. Note - Also have Borbola Fekete on some documents, and Barbara on others.
Joseph and Borbola lived in Kisvarda, Hungary for several years. Had 2 children - Joseph Reha (b 1918, Kisvarda) and Helen (Ylona) (b 1920, Kisvarda). The family emigrated to Canada in 1929, from Kisvarda directly to Windsor, Ontario, on the ship Alaunia. Borbola died in 1932, and Joseph died in 1972 (both in Montreal). In 1948 Joseph re-married, to Margaret Pauly (b 1909c Szentendre, Hungary, d 1998 Montreal).
Am searching for information about Joseph & Borbola's families - ancestors, siblings, descendants still in Hungary (already know all descendants in Canada). Have photo from Hungary of Borbola with another woman - sister? Know Joseph served in the army (Hungarian?) - have photo of him in uniform. Also have photo with woman we think is Joseph's mother (taken in Hungary, circa 1928). Just beginning the search - trying to get Joseph's documents from Margaret's daughter in Hungary (if she even has them!!)...
