    Not sure if this is the right spot, but if not, please feel free to move it! :)
    Basically, I'm looking for any Romany or children of Romany to connect with.
    My father was born in Budapest, Hungry then immigrated to Canada when he was 3.
    His family was Romany/Jewish; and trying to escape the persecution of Hungary and go for a new start including a new family last name...
    Anyway, I grew up with wonderful traditions and stories told to me by my father; about travelling around and family members, magic and music.
    I've carried a lot of those traditions with me, but I find myself alone as I don't know anyone with the same heritage as myself.

    My mother's family, immigrants from Germany (Jewish/Catholic) took over most of my upbringing (eg. I was raised Catholic) but my father always took the time to pull us aside and tell us stories that my mother would declare "non-sense" then my father would mutter in Hungarian at her and keep story-telling.

    So are there ANY others out there? I'd love to connect.
