I was born in South Bend, St. Joseph County, Indiana and I have been interested in my family history since the 1970s.
About 90 percent of the families I have listed are linked to either my materal or paternal side. The remaining links are related but I have not been able to find a connection to my grandparents.
My Hungarian maternal Galgoczy-Galgoczi heritage is traced to the 1650s, while my Hungarian paternal Farkas side can be traced to the 1850s. I have been published in newspapers for Hungary and Bulgaria in my successful efforts to locate, contact or expand on my quest for family members. Counting my greatgrandchildren, there are a total of fourteen generations accounted for on my maternal Galgoczi family!
I believe in sharing, for that is what ancestry is all about, the historical story-telling of families passed on through the generations. So if you see a family you'd like to link to, please notify me. And feel free to contact me if you find errors.
My ancestors have taught me a lot. Through the research and discoveries of their hardships, achievements, spiritual values, celebrations, personal losses and endurances to survive governmental upheavals, wars, land acquisitions, climatic disasters and disease epidemics – I found that they not only left a trail of tears and joy, but that they all had a story to tell. By posting their "story-trail" on the internet, I hope to be part of their legacy of history, a history shaped by love.
RE: Joseph Harsanyi It is done. But the edit button is on the top right side above pictures. The reason I asked to use it is it makes it easier to locate. It sends a link in email and all I have to do it click and delete or make corrections.
RE: John F. McDonald Thank you. There is also another memorial, with the correct grave marker. (I did not create this memorial) The number is 89077158. Is there anyway these two memorials can be merged?
