      Before WW I, Slovakia was part of Upper Hungary (Felvidék)
      and part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

      But, Czagas is a Hungarian surname.
      It is associated with two pre-WWI Hungarian county
      (Megye) Gyo"r and Veszprém , formerly located west
      of Budapest in Hungary proper.

      Many immigrants changed names upon arrival in the U.S.

      In old family names (Hungarian) letter ch or ts = cs and cz = c.
      In Hungarian, letter c is pron. ts and letter cz is pron. ts.

      4 surname Czagas are listed in the SSDI all under NJ.
