About Laszlo (Les) Josa:

Laszlo has spent 30 years and countless hours researching his ancestors and has discovered quite a few surprises! Laszlo was born in Balatonalmadi, Veszprem, Hungary in 1944 and left Hungary when he was 7 months old with his sister and parents on March 30th, which was Good Friday. Laszlo and his family ended up in Passau, Germany, on April 9th and stayed in a refugee camp for six years. Then Laszlo, his four siblings, and his parents arrive in the U.S. in September 1951 when he was 7 years old. Laszlo grew up speaking Hungarian and knows his way around the resources!
