Mooncotch - MUNKACSI is Hungarian surname, meaning from Munkacz (today Mukachevo). Various immigration records list immigrants w/this surname as Magyar. What religion did your Immigrant Ancestor practice?

At the turn of the 19th century Kiralyhaza was a village of 1,651 residents, predominantly Hungarian and Rusyn. The village was large enough to have its own Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic Parish. There was also a Jewish Kahal located here. The filial Reform Parish was in Feketehaza (today called Chornij Potik).
