On geographical names
In this genealogy various villages and cities occur that originally were located in the Austrio-Hungarian Donau Monarchy. When this empire ceased to exist in 1920 at the Treaty of Trianon, the official geographic names of a large number of these places changed from Hungarian to e.g. their Slovakian, Romananian or Yugoslavian equivalents. Hence, a choice had to be made how to indicate these places in the present genealogy. I have indicated all places that are mentioned in an event up to 1919 in Hungarian, for events in 1920 or later I use the official language of the country where the place is located to indicate them.

Names of some places in Transsylvania in Hungarian and Romanian that occur in the present genalogy.

COMMENT(¥); According to Ref. [37] this Josef Lapikas had possibly 3 daughters in Transsylvania, and was godfather to Josef Lapikas (5A) in 1883. The latter happens to be (after 35 years of investigation!) entirely correct, the 3 daughters happen to be 3 children, at least for the moment, there may be more children that still have to be found

Date: 1905 (the picture is sent as a card to Lajos Lapikas in Antwerp, who stayed there only in 1905). . br Location: Losoncz where Theresia Lapikas-Pajdusak lived with her daughters Maria and Margit, or Budapest, where the Gutschy's lived. Since Nandor's father who is alive in 1905 is not on the picture (had to stay in Budapest for his carpenter's workshop!) Losoncz seems to be most probable.

Dear Lajos and sister-in-law,
I was really very pleased to receive your most kind postcard, I have to say how nice it was from you. The only problem is that there was not much written on it.

Here I send you (the picture of) our workshop where you can see my husband and my son and my father-in-law. Also the assitants and the apprentice.

English translation of the letter shown above.[52]
-- page 1 --
Aachen 25 August, 1924
Dear Brother,
I guess I could still be waiting for long for any news to come from you, so it will be me to write. Beacuse I can't imagine the reason of your silence. As you know, our sister Margit has broken our line and left us behind, still young, and while ill, left us in charge of his son. As a brother, it would be my duty to take care of the boy since you yourself have enough trouble with your family, but I have totally failed so far in the uncertain employment situation these days. We do more walking than working here.
--page 2--
But maybe this will not last for long and then I will do my best, whatever my capacities will allow. But what is even worse, I have not received any news from Pest, whereas when Margit died I sent 10 Forints and haven't had any information since whether they received it or not, and I wrote 3 letters but no reply. Why? In the meantime I managed to spare a few Forints and would like to send it, but since I dont't know if they had received the first one, so I daren't send the second one because this might get lost too, while I would miss it badly these days. If you have received any news from Pest, please write to me so I would know what's happening.
--page 3--
What about you? How are you and your family? Are you all in good health and do you have enough work? Won't you come down here to Heerlen or to Maastricht, so we could have a longer talk. My dreams about visiting you this Summer have vanished. In fact, I can't move now, because the Czechoslovakian consul has withdrawn my passport with a comment that the town of Losoncz did not recognize my eligibility, and I don't understand all this bullshit. Haven't they written to you also in this matter? Please write this to me. If this is the way it will be, I shall be left here eventually without a citizenship, what is not really a problem but can be troublesome until you get other papers.
--page 4--
Your son Lajos is still waiting for me. Tomorrow he will start going to another school and he is still waiting for the airplane to come. And how are the girls doing in their studies, I can imagine how big misstresses they are already. Well, the smallest has grown a lot and starts speaking Dutch, and is your wife in good health, aren't the children vexing her too much? I believe it must be a great joy for the family to be together, and maybe you strive to leave behind your daily troubles on the Scheveningen beach for a few hours. But if it rains there as much as it does here you haven't got too much chance to go to the beach, so I hope you will have enough time to write me soon. Love to you and your wife and children: your younger brother Pals. Please accept my greetings for your name-day which is today.

In a book on the history of the Namestovo area, it says that many people from that area were cloth makers and also salespeople going from town to town and country to county selling the cloth. They told of one particular route into Croatia which was a common one. This was presumably what Stefan Lapikas did.[58]

The passenger record for the departure on 29-7-1905 off Hamburg reads:[99]
Lajos Lapikas, 30 years old, married, Residence: Nagy Karoly, Ethnicity/Nationality: Hungarian, Occupation: farmer (Landmann), labourer (Tagelöhner), Accommodation: middeck. Apparently he travels alone.
The passenger record for the arrival on 11-8-1905 in New York reads:[100]
Lajos Lapikas, laborer, 30 years old, married, nationality Hungaria, Hebrew (sic!)¥, Residence Levelek. His destination is 237 6 2d Av., New York, where he will join (Gilli?) Lapikas (before this is listed the word "woman" which is crossed through).

COMMENT(¥); No other indications have been found that the Lapikas family has a Hebrew (Jewish) origin. It has been suggested[101] that the word "Hebrew" here could very well indicate that his mother was Jewish (as common Jewish rules state).

Levelek is a small village about 70 km Northeast of Debrecen in Hungary. Nagykaroly is a fairly big town in Transylvania (Carei), very close to the Hungarian border.
