Characters involved

  1. Béla Zukmann
  2. Celia Bizony
  3. Michael Bizony

Béla (Zukmann) Bizony

Béla is listed as being born 'Béla Zukmann' in the Birth Register. By the mid-1930s to 1940s, he began making the move to England and, later, the United States. He signed his United States naturalization petition as Béla Zukmann-Bizony. [1]

Béla's children from his third marriage kept the name Zukmann while Michael and Nicholas (his sons from the first and second marriages respectively) took the name Bizony.

Béla's siblings kept the name Zukmann.

= Celia Bizony

Celia, Béla's first wife, took the name Zukmann. She was also naturalised in England with the name Zukmann. Michael's children, Celia's grandchildren, all knew her as 'Celia Bizony' (the same name she was known as professionally in the United Kingdom).

Michael Bizony

Michael was born Zukmann but started using Zukmann-Bizony (or, briefly, the variant 'Zukmann-Bizoni') around the same time his father did. He would discontinue the Zukmann name completely by the early 1950s at least when he married his first wife, possibly earlier.
