Reichard from Hungary's Satoraljaujhely

I just found this Reichard Message Board and I thought I would register my name.

I live in Australia but I was born in Hungary and came Down Under in 1957.

On my mother's side of the family we are proud Reichard's from a small eastern Hungarian village/town called Satoraljaujhely
where there was a large Jewish community.

My mother has put together quite a good family tree which includes branches now in the USA.

In my great grandparents' generation there was a huge family who were well known in the town, one of the members of the family was mayor of Satoraljauhely.

I am helping my cousin research his Reichard family from Nagygeres which is now located in Slovakia. Does your family have connections with this village?

Stephanie, if your cousin's Reichard ancestors were Jewish, it's likely they are related. A Reichard who lives in California has been cataloguing all of the Jewish branches from the Satoraljauhely area, although there are a lot of gaps in the history and we're not sure how all of the branches come together. (My connection is through an Emmanuel born about 1820.)

The Reichard family of Nagygeres shows up in the 1869 Hungarian Census. Leopold Reichard and Pepi Klein Reichard live in this town with their son Moricz. My Reichard cousin is descended from this family.

I see Moricz's wedding record in the Hungarian marriages database on jewishgen.org, which indicates the marriage occurred 1894.07.08 in Cigand, Hungary but was registered in Kiralyhelmecz (now Královský Chlmec, Slovakia). The record suggests that Moricz was born ca. 1850 (his bride, Zali Dicker, ca. 1853). I also see the marriage of a daughter of Leopold (no mother's name provided) named Mali Reichard, who was born ca. 1851, and married Herman Neuman of Perbenik (born ca. 1843) in Velky Hores on 1869.08.10.

I don't see any simple way of connecting Leopold's line to the Reichards in Satoraljauhely, but it's a good bet that they're all related. You might contact Mark Reichard, in California, who has been collecting information about some 9 lines of the family from the Satoraljauhely region, and also information for relatives who don't (yet) fit into any of the known lines. Feel free to contact me privately at dahirsch@hotmail.com and I'll send you Mark's contact info.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rezi Reichard, born ca. 1843 and married to Abris/Abraham Lovenkopf and appearing on the 1869 census living in Ricse, might have been another daughter of Leopold/Lorincz Reichard and Pepi Klein. Ricse, Veľký Horeš, and Pribenik are all just a few miles from one another.

Another member of the Reichard family from Nagygeres is Ignatz Reichard. He went to the US about 1922 and lived in Brooklyn. My cousin last heard from him about 1933. I haven't been able to track this person in the USA. Have you had any inquiries from Reichards in Brooklyn.

Some more info to share on Moricz and Zali (I don't know what you have already):
- Zali died 1894.03.31, which makes sense given that Moricz remarried that same year to Zali Dicker
- they had at least 7 children: Adolf (1876), Jetti (1878), Gergely (1883), Herman (1886), David (1888-d.1890), Bernat (1890), Jakob (1894).

It's possible that the Ignatz you're looking for was another son of Moricz and Sally Kline, who married Rose Gross (daught. of Sigmond Gross and Etta Altman) in New York 1904 (I see conflicting dates for the marriage, either April 15 or May 29). I don't know what his birth date was, but his marriage record clearly indicates Mor and Zali as parents.

I found a draft card from 1942 for an Ignatz Reichard born in Hungary in 1878, who was unemployed and living in the Bronx. He died March 8, 1946 in the Bronx. But I can't say if this is the same person as the Ignatz who married Rose Gross (the contact person on this second Ignatz's draft card was not a wife).

I've got several other Ignacz Reichards in my Sataroljaujhely lists, but I'm guessing these are too old to have been the person your cousin remembers from the 1930s (these others were born between 1858-63).

I haven't been in touch with any Reichards from Brooklyn.

The last contact my cousin's family had with Ignatz was about 1934 when my cousin received a Bar Mitvah gift from Ignatz. I was told that his son was a dentist in Brooklyn and that Ignatz worked for him and died in an accident in his son's office.

I've since been in touch with a Reichard from Brooklyn, who wrote, "The Ignatz Reichard is a son of Joseph who came here in 1864. My grandfather a brother came here in 1882 another brother came here in the early 1900's. There were no other Reichards that came to Brooklyn." If you send me your email address, I can put you in direct communication with him.
