Thanks for the response, Marianne!  Szabo is an unusual enough name that I figured it was worth asking.

Hello Marianne,

I was wondering if your Szabos have any connection to the Mertes family who emigrated from what was then Hungary but has bounced around between Czech and Romanian control as well as Austrian.

My great-great-grandparents had a daughter, Catherine Mertes, who had a daughter named Mary with a man named Albert Szabo in Buffalo, NY or Hungary sometime in the late 1800s or early 1900s. We don't know if Albert and Catherine were ever married, but Catherine's parents, Karl and Mary Mertes, wound up adopting Mary sometime in the early 1900s and she was known as Mary Mertes by the time of the 1920 census of the area. She's not in my direct line, as I'm actually descended from Catherine's brother Joseph, but I am very curious to learn what I can about this mysterious relationship.

Hello Marianne - I am in Australia and I have a friend by the name of Michael Szabo. He is from Hungary - Debretzen - if that's is the correct spelling. His father was shot while waiting in a line-up for some bread when Michael was two years old - his mother's name was Juliana David. There were three other siblings and then his mother took an orphan under her wing and raised her along with the family. Michael escaped with his life while the communist regime were shooting at him and others as they swam the river to escape to Austria and eventually came to Australia (mistaking it for Austria) in about 1956. On his behalf - where do I start trying to look? I think the family was Presbyterian and his mother passed away in 1975, having never seen her son again. I would appreciate any tips you might have and I also question if there could be a connection between yourself and his family, I believe Szabo is quite a common name in Hungary.

Yours sincerely
Lee Tsakalos
