I am hoping to contact Mable Large or relatives of Mable or Joseph and Gizella Kopezcky.

I seek direction as to how to:

Add to someone's existing data entry  eg. for Gizella's late husband Joseph.

Add information about their lives in Hong Kong and Australia.

Direction as to how to locate any relatives from Hungary so that papers, photos may be returned.

I have searched Google which brought me to this site.

Thank you.

Hi Cate,

I am hoping to contact Mable Large or relatives of Mable or Joseph and Gizella Kopezcky.

If it's not private you can post it here and I'll ask Mabel Large's family to check it, or you can send an email to me and I'll forward it for you. Sorry I don't have any contact with the Kopeczky family.

I seek direction as to how to:

Add to someone's existing data entry  eg. for Gizella's late husband Joseph.

I've made you the owner of Joseph's page at: http://gwulo.com/node/10521 so you can edit it.

Add information about their lives in Hong Kong and Australia.

Please edit their pages and add the information in the notes. It'll also be good to see a photo of them if possible.

Direction as to how to locate any relatives from Hungary so that papers, photos may be returned.

I have searched Google which brought me to this site.

I recommend you leave a message on their pages, in the hope that a relative googles the page and sees it.

Regards, David

PS Are you a relative of Gizella and Joseph?

Hi David

Thanks for your help.  Gizella Kopezcky is known to myself and my English parents who met in Cooma in the Snowy Mountains of NSW, Australia.  They became close friends in the quarrantine/settlement camp and, as my relatives all reside in England, Gizella, who had no children, became the Aunt to my parents' 5 children.

I will post as much information including photos, however, as my parents are now 82 it's my hope to be able to pass originals onto her family.  As the result of communism and changing borders between Hungary and Romania it was not safe for Gizella to maintain contact with her sister Helen when the borders changed so, although it's possible there are no living relatives, I remain hopeful that our connection may fill in some history for any surviving family.

Great, I'll look forward to learning more about Mr & Mrs Kopezcky, and hopefully the information will attract a family member to get in touch.

Here's how to upload a photo to the site: http://gwulo.com/node/2076
If you need help with anything else, just let me know.
