Hungary SIG #Hungary Hungarian Given Names-Not Surnames #hungary
My apologies. I should have said Given Names and not Surnames (familytoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
names) on the subject line and in the body of the text.
It is perhaps obvious >from the body of my request but nevertheless, I
felt I had to clarify.

Melchior Lengyel was a Hungarian writer who was born Lebovics Menyhe'rt.
My first question pertains to his surnames. Is Menyhe'rt the Hungarian
equivalent of Melchior?
In pursuing my own family history, I have seen both names used for, I
believe, the same person, in documents >from the late 18th century in
The second question:
Is the female surname Erzset equivalent to Erzsebet and Elisabeth?
Here again, I believe I am seeing this surname used for the same person.
Thank you for any feedback that can be provided.
