This is my paternal grandfather Farkas Vilmos Molnar's demobilization paper from the Hungarian Royal Army. My paternal grandfather was born in 1869 in Veszprem as Volf Vilmos Weisz. His father, Samuel Weisz, was a tailor assistant, his mother, Mari Weisz, nee Muller, was born in 1838 in Papa. I don't know much about my grandfather's youth. I only know from the documents that between 1884 and 1887 he was an apprentice of Ignac Kohn, baker and confectioner master in Papa, and in the meantime he went to the industrial school in Papa. Then he served in the Hungarian Royal 17-infantry regiment as a soldier for twelve years and three months, and because he served 'fairly,' he was entitled to wear the 'jubilee medallion.' This is written in his demobilization papers he got from the military in 1911. In World War I he wasn't called up for military service anymore. In 1896 he magyarized his name to Farkas Vilmos Molnar. He got married in 1897, and at that time he already lived in Budapest. According to the marriage certificate he was a baker's apprentice.
