Special Note: I am a 'Ragalyi' and Steve is my second cousin on my dad's side. I've been working on our family tree since about 1967 and want to make sure the records are correct. I would like to make contact with other family members that I've lost touch with. Click on my name below (Ragalyi), it will take you to my email address.
