I am trying to trace birth father's birth and marriage records. He died when I was very young and I was later adopted by my stepfather so my birth father's details no longer show on my birth certificate.
What I know: Mother: birth name: Sinka, Erzsébet Maria, born 03 March 1930 in Soroksàr, Budapest. Died in South Africa in 2006. Her father was Sinka, Gyula.
Father: Bódás, Pól (Paul), presumed born in Hungary, died in South Africa ± 1968. He was an engineer.
They left Hungary during the Hungarian revolution, arrived in Vienna in December 1956. My mother's yellow fever vaccination card in Vienna (April 1957) indicates that they were married, so they may have been married in Hungary or got married in Vienna.
I seek these records because I am applying for Hungarian citizenship. I have my mother's birth certificate but would love more information about my birth father. I would also be interested to know if my birth in South Africa on 1 September 1962 was recorded in Hungary.
