Tschida/Farkas or Benko Marriage

Tschida/Farkas or Benko Marriage

My aunt Julia married a Michael Tschida in South Bend, Indiana. I know nothing of the Tschida side, but Aunt Julia came to the US when she was about 17, when her mother - Anna Farkas/Szabo sent for her. Aunt Julia and Uncle Mike eventually moved to Salem, Oregon, and they are now deceased.

Aunt Julia's last name was either Benko or Farkas, a search I am trying to resolve. Is there anyone with any information on the Tschida/Farkas/Benko family ties? Thank you for any help, Nadine (Szabo/Farkas) Hardin

Hi Jerry, I don't know if we are related or not, but you also posted to the Tschida board. So... maybe. A lot of Tschidas and Farkas families migrated to South Bend, Indiana. My aunt Julia Anna (Julianna) married a Michael Tschida. Her sister, Marie (sometimes called Mary) came over, supposedly with her mother when she was around 4 or 7. A lot of our ancestors first went to PA because of the coal mines, etc. I have a family tree posted.
My grandmother, Anna Farkas may have had children by two different Farkas men, and has been a tremendous mystery to trace. She took her secrets to the grave with her. She was a beautiful person. I have some family pictures I can send you. Please write my personal e-mail address, and we will do some comparisons. Did any of your family members make a stop in Wisconsin? Thanks, Nadine
