Marriage Record of Great Grandpa Joseph Orshoski's Parents from Hungary
Several years ago, I obtained the marriage record of the parents of my great grandfather, Joseph Orshoski. His parents were:
Josef Orsoczky, son of Michaly and Teresa Orsoczky
Josef was age 25, and Maria was age 18 at the time of their marriage on November 24, 1884. Their religion was listed as Roman Catholic. The marriage took place in Felsővadász, a village in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, Hungary.
Josef Orsoczky, the father, actually came with his son Josef/Joseph to the U.S. in the very early 20th century. Family lore says that the elder Josef did not like America, and he returned to his homeland of Hungary. How I would love to know what Josef and Maria Orsoczky looked like!!
Thank you Archives of Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen County for this important vital record!
