historical info about Kuttner family

As many of you know, one of my hobbies is genealogical research. Recently I have been trying to look into the KUTTNER side of my family, I found some interesting things and perhaps you can be of help if you have some information to contribute to my research. First of all, in the JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Hungarian Database I found mention of the marriage of Miksa and Aranka WEISZ. Is this our grandfather? I know that Mayer is Miksa, but does it make sense to say that Deborah WEISZ is Aranka WEISZ? From Sori neni's story I know that Devorah Kuttner was originally from Ujvidek, do we have any other information about the WEISZ family from that side? Are there any relatives from that side of the family that might have more information? Also does anyone know what were the (Hebrew and Secular) names of the parents and grandparents of Mayer and Devorah Kuttner?

Also, I found in the Yizkor Book for the town of Papa that it mentions a list of teachers that had something to do with the town of Papa, and in the list it says "MIKSA KUTTNER Senior was the principal and the teacher of Tab, Somogy County MIKSA KUTTNER Junior worked at the orthodox school of Bonyhád" (see here for the exact page). This seems to imply that Miksa Kuttner's father was also named Miksa Kuttner and was a teacher in the town of Tab. Is this indeed my great-great-grandfather? Do we have any more information about him? Also, I haven't been able to figure out why this is mentioned in the Yizkor book for the town of Papa, what does this have to do with that town? 

Also, I found on the website for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum (click here) a picture of Jozsef Kuttner z"l donated to the Museum by Mr. and Mrs. Blau. In the description of the picture, it is mentioned that our common ancestor, Miksa (Mayer) Kuttner was born in Mosonszenpeter, Hungary. To the best of my recollection, this fact is not mentioned in Mr. Blau's, so I would like to first verify if this is true. I cannot find anymore information about this town, perhaps it was known under a different name or the name or spelling of the town is inaccurate?

Thanks,
