Ancestors of Gyözö (Viktor) Berecz

Click here for a graphical view of Gyözö (Viktor) Berecz' ancestry.

The surname BERECZ, and its variation BERECZKY, are derived from the name of one of the eastern-most towns of historic Hungary ... Bereczk now Bretçu, Romania ... where our family presumably originated. Many of our Berecz ancestors were Lutheran pastors and teachers in western Hungary. Though they may have had noble roots in medieval Transylvania, the Berecz' of Ság did not flout that distinction until Vic's paternal grandfather came along. Gyözö (Viktor) Berecz is described as an eccentric, pompous, and self-centered man who drank to excess. Thankfully, subsequent generations of Berecz men did not follow in his footsteps. His photos speak for themselves.
