2/8/2013 2:01 PM Hello Leon,

I'm sharing my educated guesses with you, based on factual information.

You mention the name of a person, Jeno. Since that is basically a Hungarian name, it indicates to me that there was a connection with Hungary or the Austr-Hungarian empire.

The name of the town mentioned is Szerdahely (Hungarian spelling), which was located in several areas. One is now in Romania, and I believe there is another in Slovenia. Many other towns used the Szerdahely as part of their full name.

So, just keep that for future information until you can put all of the pieces of your research together...Jo
