I suspect 'M. Furjaszeg' is Vrsek to be found at 49°11' 18°09', which is now in
Slovakia. They would sound similar if the V is read as an F and the G is read
as a K. The s in Vrsek has a symbol over it implying a more multiple sound.
I imagine it was once in Moravia and many of the towns there are prefixed
Moravske or just M. It can be found via Stetl Seeker.
