    Laura Ingraham is Hungarian on her maternal grandfathers side. Yes, Michael Kozak (1894-1956) was born in Poland, but his father Frank Kozak (1870), was born in Hungary to Catherine Hrubofsky (1850) also from Hungary. Michael Kozak’s mother Vera Kozak (1875) was born in Austria to Elizabeth Sikora 1849, also from Hungary.
