      Kuruc, [ Kuh-rrruhts] is Kurucz, in Hungarian.  Americans might pronounce it [Kuh-ruhk] and he might have tried Kuruts..  Your Grandfather was probably so frustrated, he tried to please everyone. 

      People often were afraid to use any other spelling than on Ellis Docs.

      Genealogy work is very time consuming and one must have patience working with it.

My other grandfather "KURUTZ" was so illusive! He spelled his name completely different on every document. GEORGE KURTZ married to MARY RENDOSH if anyone can help. Oh, STEFAN FURIMSKY married Mary TURCHAN. Thank you in advance anyone! Mary Ann

Ellis Island translated it as Fuzinszki but I know this is wrong, but the manifest is hard to translate. She arrived at Ellis on June 6, 1898 and was going to visit her sister and aunt in Helvetia Pa. The 1900 census has her living in Punxsutawney with her brother Mike and husband John Sugars.
