Corrections... Well, Not Corrections; Just More That I Found Out....

I said yesterday, "Great-Granddad Gaydos was proud of our Ashkenazic Jewishness, which got him into

trouble during the
 Cold War. One day, he bragged, "We're Russian." Dad retorted, "The only reason that you

say that is  
because you work in the Russian Church" (or something like that). Michael Gajdos, Jr. was a son of 

Michael (né Mihal Gajdosz) Gajdos and Katherine (née Katarina Uszinskyová) Ushinsky Gajdos, son of Jan

and
 Maria Hamaová Gajdos and daughter of Jan and Hannah Hulinskyová Uszinsky. They were born in 


Slovakia and Hungary as ethnic Jews."


"Hulinsky" was actually "Hazlinsky", and Hannah ("Anna") was married once before-- how do you like that?

You'll see the rest of what I found out on the tree-- and to be fair, I was extremely close with "Uszinsky", which

is a form of "Ushinsky", and Great-Great-Grandma Gajdos used "Uscianski" and similar forms to "Ushinsky".

And "sz" and "sc" both become "sh" in certain cases, and "c" can also be "ts". So, Great-Granddad Gaydos

was still an Anusi.

Remembering My Jewishness On Christmas: For Example...


Great-Granddad Gaydos was proud of our Ashkenazic Jewishness, which got him into trouble during the

Cold War. One day, he bragged, "We're Russian."
Dad retorted, "The only reason that you say that is

because you work in the Russian Church" (or something like that). Michael Gajdos, Jr. was a son of Michael

(né Mihal Gajdosz) Gajdos
and Katherine (née Katarina Uszinskyová) Ushinsky Gajdos, son of Jan and

Maria Hama
ová Gajdos and daughter of Jan and Hannah Hulinskyová Uszinsky. They were born in 
Slovakia 
and Hungary as ethnic Jews.

So, in memory of my proud-to-be-Jewish, obviously-in-support-of-Russian-Jewry great-granddad, my

Facebook status read:


‎, in the words of Great-Grandpa Gaydos (Michael Gajdos, z'l): Okay; I'm ready to go now (I'm going to a

family gathering today.).

Those were words that Great-Granddad Gaydos spoke at his daughter Joan's house during a visit (as Aunt

Mary recalled), and the only words that he spoke at that visit-- right after dinner!

HaMelekh-HaMet used a heart attack to take Great-Granddad Gaydos to Gan 'Eden.

I told you that he was an Anusi.
