When Librarian Matthew Thorenz sat down with his family to research
ancestry.com they had always thought that Matt's great-great-grandfather's name was Joseph but it was actually spelled "Jozsef."
Jozsef had immigrated from Arad when he was 3 years old, according to the manifest of the ship they arrived on, the S.S. Saxon, (
pictured above). Arad was part of Hungary until 1920, when it became part of Romania.
Ancestry.com is available for use at the Moffat Library. Any librarian can help get you started! Stop by today and find YOUR ancestors!
