Wilma Andras with her mother Marica and brother on a passenger list:
Her mother’s father is Pribog Milun (????).
They’re from Ópálos, Arad County. It says her husband’s name is Todor, so I think this is them on a census:
Theodore’s death record:
Here Mary’s last name is Prebeck:
This is Theodore Roumell’s death record:
This is his family on a passenger list (his mother is listed as Alexandra):
Stavros is likely Stephen. They all have their place of birth as Calamata (Kalamata, Greece).
So does Gasteyer have Yugoslavian ancestry?
It turns out she was born in Székesaranyág, Arad County.
Milun/Milan, whatever his name is, sounds Slavic, but Pribék is usually a Hungarian last name. Todor Andras sounds Romanian.
I’d leave her as just Romanian, since there’s no proof for that other stuff.
If I could decifer what’s Vilma’s brother’s name, maybe it could help.
>It turns out she was born in Székesaranyág, Arad County
by her I meant Maria, Vilma’s mother.
-> Romanian, other
Agree, Pribék is Hungarian. Census says Maria Prebeck was born in Yugoslavia and her parents too.
