My father comes from a small town in north-eastern Hungary called, Hajdudorog. I knew that a rabbi with (allegedly) special powers had lived there during his grandfather's time. I found some good information about him in this book. The scope is very impressive.

"The Unbroken Chain: Biographical Sketches and Genealogy of Illustrious Jewish Families from the 15th-20th Century, Volume 1 & 2 - Hardcover (1990) by Neil Rosenstein"
REVIEW (excerpt): "One of the
best-known published Jewish genealogies. It traces the descendants of Rabbi Meir Katzenelnbogen of Padua through 16 generations to the present. More than 25,000 people are identified as descendants. This is truly a compilation of the elite of Ashkenazic Jewry, and it is no surprise that one finds among their offspring some of this century's most important Jews in Europe, Israel, and America". --Rabbi Malcolm H. Stern, Historian of Judaism in the U.S.
