Hungarian place-name: Can you please tell me the name of the town of origin of Markus Emanuel Deutsch and his wife, Sara Blau? I'd like the German approximation if possible and the modern version of the town name. Would also like to know the location of the town or region.

6/29/2013 10:54 PM Vágvecse (formerly in Nyitra County, Hungary). Now Veca, Slovakia.

6/30/2013 5:59 AM The Vaag portion of the name refers to the Vah River in Slovakia, while Vecse is now Veca (rhymes with betcha)...so you answer is today;s Veca on the Vah which is near Sala in Slovakia.

There was a Slovak book written about the Jews of the Sala region:

Title: Salianski Zidia
Author: Rudolf Kuklovsky
Oublished: Oto Nemeth, 2001
ISBN: 8088949386

Hope that this helps with your research.
