"My greatgrandfather's name is Micheal Warga (Varga) ... Could you please look and see if you can find any of these names?"
There were family death notices in the local German papers for a Mike Warge. The family then placed the follow-up thank you (Danksagung) to the local community where his name is corrected to Warga.
Some other names that crop up in my index of these papers are:
- Leona (Varga) Schmidt - Mrs. Joseph Schmidt (both Varga & Warga used in reference to Leona
- Johann & Maria (Kleppich) Varga -- death notices and an earlier wedding anniversary photo
- Michael John Varga (1 yr), parents Mike & Mary (Winter) Varga
