History paper by Bártfay, Arthur A. (all papers)
1912--My Hungarian Parents Move to America--A Family History
My parents--Bartfai Sandor & Toth Julianna--were born in Austria-Hungary. They were zseller who moved to Granite City, Illinois,
where other Toth sibilings had immigrated earlier. They had eight children. I was born in 1935 on a farm & started school in a one room school house down the road. In 1978, I made my first of five visits to Hungary, making contact with relatives. Uncle Imre was living in the Hungarian equivalent of an American log cabin. It had a thatched roof. Water came from a well in the yard.
One hundred years after my parent's immigration, I attended the Toth-Bartfay
reunion in St. Louis, MO.
