If anyone has any information on Maria Kerekes Borsos, Stephen Kerekes, Raki Kerekes married name might be Magyarosi or their descendants all from Zselyk Hungary/ Jecia Romania. These are my great Aunts and Uncle. My grandmother Elizabeth Kerekes Krecsmar moved to the United States in 1909, Maria Kerekes Borsos was also in the US at that time but she returned to Hungary. I would appreciate any information that anyone would like to share.
Thanks and good luck in your searches.

Maybe you should come here in Romania, in Zselyk to find he answer...
The village is unique in the current Bistrita-Nasaud county, whereas the majority of residents belongs to Evangelical (Lutheran) church.
In the middle of 19 century, the population of Zselyk was almost 800, but from 1990 population decline to 137 persons. At that time the 55 men and the 82 women average age was 65 years.
In January 2007, from 151 house 81 was empty (or already are in italics). The young generation is between 50-60 years old persons from Bistrita, a group of people who move out here after retirement (in the grandparents houses).

In the village since 1981 does not work or school, or kindergarten, young people can not remain here.

Since 2002, usually around the date of August 20 as scheduled, the Foundation ProZselyk organizate the Village Days. In 2009 this was organizated at august 15..

A lot of people come at around this date in the village from all over the world.. Maybe you should come here in Romania, in Zselyk to find he answer untill the elders are still alive...
