Dear Deby,
as I told you, I coudn't find no one as Lazarutz, Lazaruc or Lazarut in Band, only one women named Hogas Dominica appers in a small village depanding adminstratively from Band named Draculea Bandului. If you can tell me more about this line of Lazarutz it can be useful: seems they left Band, I supose some time arroud 1919-1920, after great union that gave back Transylvania to Romania in 1918, after first great war, when, many magyars, forced and delude by hungarian goverment from Budapest to abandon their homes and leave to Hungary as an act of opposition to new romanian administration, all of them being neglected there, even starving as they left home without all what they accumulated back home in Transylvania. It is very complicate to explain historical facts that emerge to this decision in those times, hungarian propaganda are still acting even today in the same way (if you want to undersand correct this history we can talk and I can explain you many things regarding political and historical fact on this part of world that can not be understood from atlantic distance and I'll be glad to do it with no sujectivity; you can also read almost 2 american writters about this subject: Milton Lehrer's book "Transylvania, history and reality" and Keith Hitchins book "A nation affirmed:The romanian national movement in Transylvania, 1860-1914"). So, is important when they left Transylvania going to live in Budapest. Also, is important to know if this line named Lazarutz were romanian or magyar, I bend they hand romanian origin even if, going to US from Budapest your relative declared himself being magyar. Romanian sounds like named could be Lazar, Lazariuc, Lazarut (read "tz"), Lazarica and many variations which can be explore. About Szakacs line, tell me more. I found this: Janos Szacacs, 32 y.o. from Kisskukullosard, wife abt.Doroga Anika, going to brother (?) Nicolae Bucur, Toringham (?) US in march 1914 from Antwerp on Kroonland ship and Todor Szakacs, 38 y.o., brother John Bucurean, going to US ain april 1914 from Antwerp on Vadeland ship to his father John Bucurean also in Toringham. Don't know if is relevant to you. Try to find more about them to see what we can do next. Regards, Rena
