When I was researching a family in Kalocsa,in the Family History Library
microfilms, I found people with the surname Travnicsek, but in the margin,
it was written that the name was changed to Mezei and gave the date of 1895
for the changes and the registration number. The Mezei name is a very
common name in Hungary, and Travnicsek is a Czech name. The father probably
wanted to sound more Hungarian and thus the official name change.
When the marriage between Jozef Furst and Regi Travnicsek took place in
1893, she is listed as "Travnicsek also known as Mezei," and her father is
shown as Bernad "Mezei."
