Varga Surnames of Bogyoszló, Hungary

Welcome Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart. On this page I'll provide a little information about who I am and what inspired me to do this research. Most of this information was obtained from talking to living relatives and from researching FHC Library Films of Hungarian Church records. In the course of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible! This database contains the information of people with the surname of VARGA from the records of the Roman Catholic Church of Bogyoszlo, Hungary. This is about my Varga ancestors on my mother's side. I’d extracted all the data of all the people with the last name of Varga from the church records. There are over 1000 names in the database but some of the family relationships cannot be ascertained due to the fact that one of the books of marriage records is missing. The local priest told me that during W.W.II, the book was consumed by fire. Because of the missing book of marriages there may be duplication of some of the names. This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture. Thank you. Joseph M. and Julie Nemeth <mailto:nimpex@earthlink.net> Acknowledgments I'd spent many hours in the FHC Library trying to read the handwriting of the long ago priests of Bogyoszlo. The Mormon Church filmed all of the church records of Hungary and I am eternally grateful to them for making these films available to the general public for a nominal fee. I want to express my thanks to Mariann Konan of Yorkton, SK. for her invaluable help to update the information on the family members residing in Canada. Many thanks to Anna Kovacs, Maria Mogor, my brother Bandy Nemeth and many others in Hungary for their help. And I want to thank my wife Julie for her patience in putting up with my being absent from dinner for so many times and for her advice when I needed it.
