It's Nandor, not Landor.
Nandor is hungarian for Ferdinand.

The entry I found in the church records is not our Ferdinand,
obviously, since the baby died a month later. (Gotta learn Hungarian
so I can read those notes! :-) )
But, knowing that Lándor means Ferdinand will help our search. Also,
since we have Ferdinand's SSN from SSDI, getting the info from the SS-
5 will be a great help. From family contacts we know that Ferdinand
was in Bridgeport CT by about 1900 and worked there as a woodworker.
Contacting Ando family members currently living in the area is on
our 'to-do' list.
