I'm searching for my godfather, Sziszák Géza who is about 75-80 years old and he left Hungary in 1956 with his older brother, László. Maybe, they lived in New York and Baltimore but László returned to Hungary after about a year. Géza was born in Nyírszőlős in the beginning of 30's. I'd like to hear something about him and his family and get to know how they are. I'm waiting for any information from everybody with pleasure who knows him.

Thanks for any information,
his goddaughter, Sziszák Margit (Margaret), Nyírszőlős, Hungary

Hi. Sorry, but, I'm a bit confused. Are you putting his last name first?

Yes, I think that's correct - I've reversed it.
Chances are the name has been Americanized. Sziszak - could also be different - could have been written phonetically at some point.
My parents came here at the same time through Ellis Island, many settled in NJ - namely the Newark area.

FWIW, I'm not seeing any of the people from the 50's on the Ellis Island search.
Anything coming up is 40 years older (1910)
