Hungarian Names in Manti Temple - 5-16-2011

Richard got a random call to go with the YM/YW to do baptisms for the dead in the Manti Temple. He was a witness as they began the baptisms. The names of the people seemed to have a lot of c's, z's, an s's. When they got through with that section Richard asked the officiator, "These sound like they could be Hungarian names?" The officiator said, "They are Hungarian." Bishop O'Donnal said, "He has a son on a mission in Hungary." The bishop also said this is really special thing that there is a connection with these people and having Trevor in Hungary and Richard just happened to be called to help. We wrote to Trev to tell him what had happened...

Trev's Response: "THAT IS SOO COOL! I got huge cold chills reading that! were there names like Zsuzsana, Zsolt, Istvan, Janos, Lajos, Gabor? those are pretty common names. thats soo cool!!!! They must be SUPER old names, thats the old way of spelling, i know that people who found those names! haha they do it in Pest. Vaczy is a common last name."
