This woman is my paternal grandmother, Gizella Stein. I have no idea where this photo was taken, or when, but I can guess that she was in her forties here, so it must have been around the 1910s. This is actually a copy of the real photo, which was sent to me by my nephew, George, who lives in Sweden. He found the photo after his mother, Alice Meier, my cousin, died, and he sent me a copy, he thought I would like to have one.

My grandparents on my father's side were called Iosif and Gizella Stein. I know my grandmother was born in 1867, but she died before I was born, in 1927; she died at a rather early age, at 60, because of stomach cancer. Both spoke Hungarian, and I know that my grandfather was a clerk, and my grandmother a housewife. They lived in a village very close to Budapest, a village called Maglod.
