Sashalom, looking for.......

Hi there,

Is this gonna be too tough for you guys and gals or is there someone who can guide me to the right place.

Got a name that during the war (probably even before) and a few years after used to live and own a private home in Sashalom.

Would love to get the address, where should I start, any leads??

Thanks

Andy

Sashalom is an area of Budapest. Sashalom is a part of District 16. (I live in Sashalom too.)

Maybe you can try major's office. (Polgarmesteri iroda).

1163 Budapest, Havashalom utca 43.

Unfortunately the website of the district 16 is in hungarian only.

Thanks but today I wrote to the Mayors Office, now waiting for a reply, hopefully.

Thanks.

In the past I wrote to the Budapest Mayors Office and different agencies but never ever got even an answer. Lets wait and see.

Maybe you should ask somebody to translate your letter into Hungarian.

So many public records were destroyed during the war. As were so many public buildings. Many records were just scooped up off the floors and sidewalks and dumped into boxes that wre stored in basements, etc. Other records disappeared in the AVO and back to Moscow.

You might try church or synagogue records for a lead. There are still organizations who still help reunite people and families seperated during the war.

Did not get any answer from the Sashalom municipality. Kind of getting used to not getting any reply from any Hungarian office anytime.

Bureaucracy in Hungary. :(

My advise: find someone who speaks Hungarian and try to do it personally.
