Hi - I'm looking for any help in deciphering the name of the town this immigrant (friend's ggf) is from in Hungary. Thank you!

1/3/2013 3:22 PM The image quality is not sufficient to make anything out. If this is from a free online image, please post a link; if it's not, please post a higher-resolution image, cropped as necessary to fit within ViewMate's limits -- it's good to have as much context as possible, to compare letterforms, but not at the expense of readability as a whole.
1/5/2013 9:47 PM THe surname name "Pollack" that appears at the top of this WWI Draft Registration Card most likely refers to the person who helped to translate and give the information for Elias Katz/Ketz during his draft registration process. I searched on ancestry for Elias Katz and found a passenger list for an Elias Katz arriving in Aug. 1905 on the Ship S.S. Hamburg, sailing from Hamburg, Germany. Interestingly, he has listed that his destination is the domicile of an acq. (acquaintance) Joseph Pollack, Lewis Street, New York, NY. Hope these clues are helpful.

Here's a website that has many towns from Hungary listed alphabetically. Maybe you could try process of elimination as to which city is listed on this card
