My Benko's showed up in Hadikfalva, Bukovina in the 1780's. I would like to find out where they came from in Transylvania (before going to Bukovina). There were two men (brothers?) Marton, born about 1782, and Jozsef, born about 1770.
That's all I know about them so far.
I took a look at your family tree, and it looks like your line is a female one(?) If so, that is too bad, because we have a Y-DNA project, and I am looking for a Benko in Transylvania to test and compare to our Bukovina Benko's. This may be the only way to determine if all the Benko's are related.
P.S. I live in Budapest also, and if you are interested in setting up a Benko DNA project, I could help you do it.
