Re: Hungarianization of last names in Hungary, 1890s #hungary

We are aware of at least two NUSZBAUM family members who changed their surname to DIOSI in the 1860s, apparently in an effort to make themselves eligible for admission to medical school. I am told that this is a pretty straight translation (nut or nut tree) from German/Yiddish to Hungarian.
