Re: Isak (Ignacz) Weinstock, then BOROS #hungary


I can't translate the Hungarian, but it seems like this was a change from a German surname to a Hungarian one. I had a number of relatives who changed their surname in that way, possibly some cultural bias against German names. Magaziner to Balkanyi (their mother's maiden name), Fink to Fenyo, Klempovics (ok, not all that German) to Nagy (very Hungarian).
