Zlatica : Re: Zelei surname
Beth,

You need to locate a name of a town in order to proceed with the research.

www.rat.de/kuijsten/navigator
http://vivisimo.com
www.google.com
www.imrehun.com
Hungary's phone site is at :
www.matav.hu/english/index.html
There were 38 ZELEIs and 3 ZELEYs that passed thru Ellis Island. You might want to take a look at those manifests.

bzelei: Re: Zelei surname
My grandparents (Zelei) emigrated to the United States in 1922 by way of Ellis Island. They came from a town in Hungary called Mvzokovesd (spelling may not be quite right) I have no information about their life in Hungary before they came to the United States, any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Beth

Hi Beth !

I have relatives near to Mezokovesd (village called Negyes). There are living Zelei's even now. I collected from Ellis Island database the persons called Zelei, who emigrated from Mezokovesd, Negyes, Poroszlo between 1903-1924. Your e-mail addres isn't public (not added) therefore write me. Probably I can help you looking for relatives at that region (Borsod)

bzelei: Re: hi
Hi Dyna, thanks for writing. I have seen your great-grandfather's name (Mihaly Zelei) in the Ellis Island immigration records. Did your grandfather Jozsef also come to America? I have a record of a Jozsef Zelei who came to America in 1914 to live in a town that is very close to where I live now. It is also the same town where my grandparents lived when they came to America after they left Hungary. Beth

Hello Beth, thanks for writing.
I've spoken with my father(József Zelei 80 years), his grandfather could be Mihály Zelei(who imigrated to America in 1914)
If my knowlwdge is right the emigrant Mihály Zelei travelled to America with his brother József.Later József come back to Hungary.
If I am right,Mihály Zelei lived in the first times in Ohio. There is an other thing, that I have heard from my father, that Mihály Zelei was a very good accordion player.
Could you tell me where in this Ellis Island, because I haven't heard about it before.Dyna

Hi Zsolt,
The only information I know about Terezia Zelei is this: she lived in Mazokowisa Hungary then left and came to America with her mother Josefini on August 18,1913. She was still just a baby when she came to America, only 11 months old.
I don't know anything about her when she was older. I hope this helps you.

Viktor: Re: Zelei surname
Dear bzelei,

Sorry to disturb you.

I am writing to enquire in relationt to my relative.
I am looking for my retatives in the United States of America.
Sorry, I don’t speak English Language fluently, but I learn it.

I have a family story.
My grandmother’s mother’s (my great-grandmother’s brother) brother was János (John) Zelei. He origin from Hungary. He lived in Mezőkővesd (now is Zepmlén Megye or in English County), but in the past Mezőkövesd was in Borsod Megye (County), Hungary.
János (John) Zelei immigrated to the United States of America in about 1911 (my grandmother said), but the boat arrived maybe in 1912.
He had no money for the boat ticket, but the captain of the steamship allow to him to board to the steamship. He worked on the steamship in exchange. He heated the steamship. He shovelled coal to the furnace of the boat to America.
He moved to Cleveland, Ohio, later Barberton, Ohio.
He lived at Takács Family (István or in English Steve Takács).
Reportedly he went down the stairs by motorcycle and maybe he drunk sometimes. (My grandmader said, she heard it.)
He died in february 24th, 1956. He lived 67 year?, 1889?, Hungary - february 24th, 1956. USA (my grandmother said) or 68 years, 1886-1956.
His father is János (John) Zelei, his mother is Teréz (Teresa or Theresa) Farkas.
His siblings are Jóska (József) Zelei (he died at World War 1, maybe not died in the World War 2), Teréz Zelei (she is my grandmother’s mother, my great-grandmother, István (Steve) Bán’s wife, Mezőkövesd, Hungary), Mária (Mary) Zelei, Gáspár Zelei.

Are you a descendant or relative of János (John) Zelei?

But maybe not he is your grandfather but him father's sibling. My grandmother do not know nothing János (John) Zelei's father, János (john) Zelei's siblings.
Maybe one of him sibling is your grandfather or grandmother?
I would be grateful if you could be to help me found my relatives.

Please contact me if you think you are related to my family.
My E-Mail address is: viktornorbert91 -a-t- hotmail -d-o-t- com

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your help.

Have a pleasant day!

Viktor: Rokonaim keresése
Kedves Dyna,

Az anyai ági dédnagymamám testvére, az én dédnagybácsim, Zelei János 1911-ben ment ki Amerikába, de lehet hogy a hajó 1912-ben érkezett meg.
Nem volt pénze a hajójegyre, de a kapitány megengedte neki, hogy így is felszálljon, a hajón dolgozott cserébe, a hajót fűtötte Amerikába.
Cleveland, Ohio-ba, majd Barberton, Ohio-ba költözött. Takácséknál (Takács István) lakott.
Felesége Papp Teréz nem ment ki Amerikába, Mezőkövesden maradt.
1956-ban halt meg (1956. II. 24.). 67 évesen? (1889-1956. II. 24.), vagy 68 évesen, 1888-1956?
Állítólag nagy virtuózkodó volt, motorral ment le a lépcsőn, és lehet hogy ivott is.
Apja Zelei János, anyja Farkas Teréz.
Testvérei: Zelei Jóska (József) (meghalt az I. világháborúban), Zelei Teréz (nagymamám anyukája), Zelei Mária, Zelei Gáspár
Sajnos a nagymamám nem tud vagy nem emlékszik semmire sem a nagypapája családjáról.
Lehet hogy a dédnagybácsikám, Zelei János édesapjának, Zelei Jánosnak a testvérei közül volt az egyik Zelei Mihály és/vagy Zelei József?

Please contact me if you think you are related to my family.
My E-Mail address is: viktornorbert91 -a-t- hotmail -d-o-t- com


Köszönöm a segítségét!
Legyen kellemes napja.
