Comment on A Short History of Bikacs by Denton Vaughan Fri, 22 Jun 2018 21:10:32 +0000 I am trying to find out more about Lenyel the town where my wife’s father’s family originated.

Comment on Welcome by Denton Vaughan Fri, 22 Jun 2018 20:59:08 +0000 My wife’s family origninally came from Lengyl.
But her father was living in Budapest at the time that the Swabian Germans were sent to Germany. He was able to adopt Hungarian identity the family name of Zenti and so was not
sent to Germany. However, many of his relatives
could not and so were sent to East Germany, where they still live. My wife and I come to
Hungary every spring and would very much enjoy
learning more about Lengyl and the people who lived there.
