My grandfather’s birth certificate.

My grandfather [Lajos Feigelbaum] was born in Hajdudorog. Then he had a little tool workshop in Nagyvarad. He put together one of the first bicycles in Hungary there. He also installed the first telephone in Nagyvarad, in the Town Hall. My grandfather wasn't well-to-do. I've got a couple of cards from the front that he wrote my father when he sent him 50 crowns, 'send it back, because I've got such troubles'. My grandparents actually kept kosher. But my grandmother didn't wear a wig.
