Record Search Findings: Obit for Rózsa Porkoláb, 1899

This obituary is for a (newly found) distant relative of mine: Rózsa Porkoláb de Nagyváth és Mágoch. She was the wife of Pál Megyery de Vasmegyer. She died on 10 Dec 1899 in Debrecen and was buried on 12 Dec 1899, probably in Debrecen.

The obituary lists her surviving family. Her son Doctor István Megyery (wife Sarolta Kornis), and their children Ella, Irma and Sarolta. Her second son Doctor Pál Megyery (wife Mária Nánássy), and their children Lilla, Erzsébet and Pál.

Wordless Wednesday - András Izdenczy

My ancestry brings me back to my 8th-great-grandfather, Márton Izdenczy de Komlós who died between 1709-1715. Márton is the probable grandson of András Izdenczy above. András was the Hungarian ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, in Constantinople in the 1630's, as well as to the Polish King around 1638.
