Just wondering if that was your first name....
If so, what is your nationality ? (if I may ask)

I'm curious also. I know that Miklos is a common Hungarian name. It's pronounced more or less like Meeklosh. If this is the case with our Miklos, then that would be his first name. I don't know if in this particular instance this is the case though. I'd love to know, speak up Miklos!

Yes, I'm Hungarian also. My father came over here in the early '50's I beleive. It was during the Russian occupation in Budapest. He was shot trying to escape over a fence, and you guessed it, got shot in the *ss. My middle name is Michael (Miklos), and all of his friends used to call me Miklos. My sister recently went to Budapest for 4 weeks to trace our family tree, and got it back to the 1600's.

Sorry its not bicycle related, but I haven't run into any other Hungarian roadies !

My mom is Hungarian also. She's not a '56er (I guess your Dad came in 56? That seems to be when everyone else did. My Grandparents thought about it, but then decided against it.) Anyway, she came over the Atlantic when she was about 20, to play in a Symphony in Mexico City. She met my Dad there and then they got married and moved up to Texas, where I live now. My Dad picked up Hungarian off of her, she picked up English off of him, and I learned both from both of them when I was little. People call me Kristof when I go to visit family in Budapest, Szentendre, and Gyor. Do you speak? It's a great place!

The nationality is Czechoslovakian. My grandfather came over before and fought in WWII. Thats about all I know. I don't know a lot of family history, wish I did though. Goning to have to ask my father when I see him again at Thanksgiving.

Oh, yeah? So your Grandfather's first name was Miklos, and it became your family name in Czechoslovakia? And Granddad was Hungarian? Or do I have this wrong.

Do you speak Czech? Nemluvim cesky.
