Looking for information on Michael Drexler and Meri Repp.
They were my great grandparents.
My grandma was born Rosalia (Rose)Drexler in 1920 in Bezden, Hungary.
According to my grandma, the town of Bezden later became part of Yugoslavia.
I'd like to know where the town is now - if it still exists.

Michael Meri Drexler immigrated to the U.S. through Ellis Island around 1923
and settled in Wisconsin.

Any information you could share would be great.

Thanks.

Bezdan does indeed still exist. It is
located in northeastern Serbia near the
border with Croatia. It is about 60 km SW of
Subotica, and about 18 km NW of Sombor.

I am also researching family in Bezdan. My
gg-gf Pinkus Bruck appears in the 1828 census
of the town.

Just read your posting re: BEZDAN, HUNGARY.After WW 1
it became part of YUGOSLAVIA. Now it is part of SERBIA.
Your linage is part of the DANASCHWABEN group of Germans
which Colonized that area after the defeat of the
OTTOMAN TURKS and their withdrawal, leaving it a disaster
area. After WW 1 it became part of YUGOSLAVIA. Today it
is part of SERBIA. BEZDAN is just to the east of the
DANUBE river about 15 miles from the southern border of
HUNGARY. Just below this border is BEREG, then KOLUT
then Bezdan. My family, LORBACH and BARON,are from KOLUT.
I'm in the process of compiling a map of these three
towns from about 17 smaller maps of the area. On these
maps you can make out the individual houses.

My mother would often speak of " Auf der Bezdaner Markt
genhen".

I hope the above helps you locate BEZDAN and
inspires you to further investigation of your family.
