About the Zaks surname

A certain Zaks family all over Eastern Europe is stated according to family tradition,as I understand,to descend from Salamon Senior baptized Emerich Fortunatus/Zerenchees son of Etil son of 'PRWM who was born about 1460 and deceased in 1526 according to the italian counting that began in 1346 b.c..

Kutenay ( Kuten-Na-Ay ) tribe in Skythia is related to ainu in Kuril and perhaps through them also to kwiril alias imeret in Georgia ,therefore he was by other historicians using british aera beginning in 1065 b.c. called Kut(h)en , emperor of kumanians,and took the name Imre at becoming christian. Other scriptors using old roman aera beginning in 723 b.c. knew his name in greek and latin respectively Salmutzés / Almus that approximately corresponds to Salamon Aleman.

Seemingly there were however two contemporane Almuses participating in the conquere of Carpathian Basin : one a son of Eleud born after 96 ( 819 / 1445 ) son of Ugek ,who could never enter Pannonia,and an other , father of Arpad who descended from the family of Ethele ,as chronicle says. The first should then be identical with Selim Yavuz - deceasing in 171 ( 1520 / 894 ) - son of Bayazid ( Bayan-Zhid ) who may have also been called El-Ye'ud .

As it is known,he acted in high post in Hungaria in his years and was by many blamed for the weekness of the country becoming irresistant to turk amanace,was for a short time carcered and then freed,and finally the mob of the catholic party sieged his palace in Buda in 1525/1241. That time he still managed to escape but next year he parted for heaven to live for ever.

He had more sons known,such as 'PRWM,'BRHM perhaps WYSP father of Sh'LTW and WSHR'L , and Georg, from whom Arpad begot Zolta who begot Taxi.

Taksi finally together with his father Gio-Tsangga son of Fuman ( Fruman / A'an-Ferawama ?) died in 233 ( 1582 / 956 ) in a battle against chinese and his son Nur-Khachi founded Daiching dynasty that took over them and ruled in China until the most recent times .

Jews and christians read 'Efraim,' Abraham,Yosef ,Sha'alti,Yishra'el.
