To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Margaret Eckhold and I am trying to find a birth certificate for my grandmother.
She was born in the Banat region in Begas Szent Gyorgy. I understand that this is the current day
Her name was Katherina Veronica Gares (Goresz, Gorisch) I am not sure of the spelling of her last name as it was changed when she emigrated to the United States of America in 1905.
She was born on the 5th of December in 1895.
She was the middle daughter of Wenzel and Catherine Quieser (sp?).
Her older sister was Magdalena and the younger was Anna.
Catherine Quieser died while giving birth to Anna. Wenzel then married Catherine’s sister, Susanna.
The family was Roman Catholic.
They came to the states together in 1905.
They were of German ethnicity, but living in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
I believe that Wenzel was born on 3 April, 1866 in Nagy-Toszeg, Hungary.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
