The History of our Family

Opening the box of grandfather’s papers was like opening Pandora’s box. The good, the bad and the confusing of my family history came tumbling out and there is no turning back. I have to make sense of it. I don’t have all the answers yet but I will keep posting stories as I learn about my family, Hungarian history and anything else I stumble upon along the way.

I am a Canadian born American of Hungarian descent.  My ancestors were soldiers, ship-builders, farmers, shop-keepers, noblemen and beggars. I would love to connect with long lost cousins, any Édes families from anywhere, and anyone else on their genealogy journey.

  1. I operate a website that sells family crest products. I have many nationalities, but I do not have any Hungarian crests yet. Do you know of any Hungarian resources (ex. old books) that would help me?

  2. I am a new follower to your blog but have enjoyed what I have read so have nominated you for the “One Lovely Blog Award”.
    Please do not feel that you need to participate but I hope that you get more readers.
