Re: Deciphering Hungarian Village Name

Hi Cathy,

Thanks for looking.  Horvath is actually the second most common Hungarian surname, so there were lots of Horvaths all over Banat but they likely were not related.  The Martin Horvath from Szücs/Sitsch in Veszprem county was born in 1797 and was orphaned by 1805.  His stepfather Simon Babics died in 1828, so he may have decided to move to Banat at that time - he first appears in Gottlob records in 1831.  There does not appear to have any Horvath relatives that he moved with.

Thanks,
Mark
