This comment was added to the 12 December 1873 Birth record of Abroham DINTENFASZ in Tarczal, Hungary. Since it includes a reference to 1902 it must have been added later. His parents are listed in the original record as Lajos and Feighe. This is the only record of the 12 on this page with a comment like this squeezed into the right hand column, and I would like to know what it says. Sorry that I cannot also display the entire page, but then this comment would be too tiny to read. The record source is "Birth Records collected by Rabbis in Various Countries", LDS microfilm 642959.

6/9/2013 6:54 PM I'm pretty sure the note is about a surname change, but unfortunately the image is not quite in focus, so I can't make out the particulars. I think the new surname is in quotes, the first word of the second line.
6/10/2013 4:23 AM I am pretty sure the language is Hungarian, but as the previous response has indicated, the image is not clear enough to make out much.
6/10/2013 7:49 AM As you indicate, this is difficult to read but it is in Hungarian and it is a record of a change of name from Dintenfasz in 1902. Possible new names would seem to be Décsi or Dévai. This is in accordance with Order No. 23098.
