Hi Tom,

I think, that "magyarosit=E1s" had roots in the fact that "Greater" Hungary=20=
had=20
only a little more than 50% Hungarian population, and this was a way to=20
increase the percentage. The theory was that if someone had a Hungarian name=
,=20
spoke Hungarian and this way had a Hungarian culture, he or she was Hungaria=
n=20
no matter where he or she came from. I find this quite liberal.=20

I might be wrong, but I thought people had to get only their grandparents=20
birth certificate during the Horthy regime.
