    1. Re: [TRANSYLVANIA] Transylvania Saxon Family Books?
    2. Laszlo, I have an unrelated question, but about Transylvania. My family is from Szatmar m, villages of Mehtelek and Szaraz Berek. Is any part of their villages in Transylvania? My family names are Babicsak, Lencses, Bucs, Balla, Suranyi. I was told years ago that the name Babicsak was not Hungarian but perhaps Slovak or from that area. They were possibly Evangelical. They first appeared in Mehtelek Reformed Church records in 1790's. I have not been able to find the name in early records for surrounding villages, in fact did not find the name in any area village. After 40 years I have given up. Any words of advise? Thank you.

    1. Re: [TRANSYLVANIA] Transylvania
    2. Janos Kocs, Your name was suggested to me for some help. My parents immigrated from Szatmar m in 1907-1910. Mehtelek and Szaraz Berek. Names are Babicsak, Lencses, Suranyi, Bucs. My father's family are in Reformed Church records in Metelek back to 1800. I was told in the past that Babicsak is not Hungarian, possibly Slovak or Ukranian. Also the first entry I found in church book listed the name as Lutheran and Tot. I searched area villages and looked for Lutheran Churches. Did not find the name anywhere else. Lots of Babicsak in the area today as well as in Brazil. Only my family in United States. Can you help me? Also is this area considered Transylvania?
