I forgot to mention that I believe there was no immigration from Austria
Hungary after WWI started in 1914 and until after the WWI ended in November
of 1918. I also found 20 Csellar in the EIDB from Hungary and a couple of
Szellar from Hungary and several Szaller.
- If you do a search on the Ellis Island site (the Steven Morse one is much
better) do remember that the Sh sound is written with a plain S in
Hungarian. The original name might have been spelled more like Sellard. If
you can't find the Morse site via a search engine, post me privately.
