My father, Fazekas Ferenc was born in Viss, Hungary on May 01, 1890. He came to America through Ellis Island in 1922 and settled in Cleveland, Ohio. While in Cleveland, he met and married my mother, Margit Duncsak. They moved to Detroit, Michigan and raised their 5 Children; Gabriel, Eleanor, Frank, Margaret and Gerald. He worked for the General Motors Corporation as a wood/clay model maker, the trade he learned in Hungary.

This link, Fazekas' in Hungary, is dedicated to my father, his family, relatives and friends.

The Fazekas' in Hungary link was made possible through the efforts of many, many people. Internet assistance from Frank Kurchina, Beth Long, Balogh Istvan and Zlatica Beca all strangers but wonderful helpers. My brother Jerry Fazekas, my daughter-in-law Julia Fazekas (David's wife and Ashley's mom) and my cousin Zsolt Fazekas, his parents and relatives in Hungary.

Zsolt was so helpful in not only gathering much family History Pictures and Data,
but he met us at the airport, drove us throughout Hungary, introduced us to our relatives and even took us to Kosice, Slovakia.
What a wonderful host. We owe Zsolt so much for taking
so much of his time to make our trip so memorable.
Thanks ZSOLT & TIMEA!. You are the best. Thanks.
