Yes, and that is fine. I did read your email etc .
1720 (18th Century), is after the departure of the
Turks, and some of your family is >from the Western
part of Hungary and even Burgenland,

What documentation do you have that dates back to
the
1600's? Remember only the Burgenland and the
Slovakian
provinces were not under Turkish rule. It is also
believed that Jews who were there with thr Turks
left
with them specially after the Austrians liberated
Buda
and killed everyone who was there. In the same
vein
Jews that were there in 1526 either left or were
taken
to Turkey (though many came back later on.)
Jewish presence in Hungary goes back to the
Romans,
but with many in and ou, like the rest of Europe.

Also most did not use family names. Even in the
1828
Census I have found Jews only referred by one name
that looked more like a first name, also others
where
the last name if a first name.most probably the
father's first name.

I have been able to reconstruct with the help of
archival resources an
outline of the history of the Sacher family of
Balassagyarmat and Losonc
from the 1720s.
