This blog is a celebration of my Hungarian and Croatian heritage. Several branches of my family find their roots in the former Austria-Hungary: specifically today's Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, Hungary and today's Međimurje region of Croatia (formerly Zala County, Hungary).
These families arrived in the United States about 100 years ago and settled in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
I am currently researching the following surnames:
- Bedenica or Bedenices
- Bence or Bencze
- Globlek or Globlic or Globlić
- Ujlaki or Ujlaky or Ulaky
