Hungary SIG #Hungary Act of Emancipation #hungary


I have read a Brief History of the Jews of Hungary on the following URL :

I cannot find any reference to the so called Act of Emancipation whereby Jews
were required to adopt surnames. Can someone enlighten me as to the year of
this decree and where can I read about it. Thank you .
