A film on my family roots

02.06.08 | Comment?

Part of my family’s origins are from Hungary. We lately learned that Barbara Spitzer, a French film maker, who seems to be related to my family, made a documentary on her quest in finding her Hungarian roots… which is our roots too!

With my Dad, we’re trying to find an online version of the film named “Ce qu’il en reste“, with no luck so far. The closest I got was finding an excerpt of the film. You can find it here or here (it requires Real Media Player… and the ability to either speak Hungarian or read French subtitles). There’s also a wonderful blog post here quoting her talking about the film. Again, it’s in French, but Google Translate does a pretty good job at, well, translating.

My great uncle, Peter, is actually going to meet with her in Paris this spring. We might get juicy information on genealogy and maybe a DVD? I can’t wait to get more information!
