The surname "Hažlínsky" and its variants—e.g., "Haszlinsky" (a Magyar variant)—denote one with roots in Hažlín. According to FamilySearch, the surname first appeared in the 1700s in Gaboltov and not Hažlín. Incidentally, this also makes likely that Mickey Haslin (né "Hazlinsky")'s father, George Hazlinsky, was solely Matrilineally Jewish and not Jewish because of both parents (This is important to note because George Hazlinsky and his brothers were maternal siblings of a Katherine Ushinsky Gajdos, née Uszinskyovà; and she was Jewish through both her own paternal line and her and George's maternal line, that of Zsuzsanna "Anna" Jaszová Haszlinskyová Uszinskyová [1]

(Among Anna's other children were Katherine's point of contact at Philadelphia, Marion Hazlinski (later Martin Hazlinsky);[2][3][4] and Katherine truthfully gave his name, whereas she gave "Maria Uscianski" in order to conceal her Jewish heritage.[5])

  5. ^ Great-granddaughter of Michael Gaydos (1901-1977), a son of Katherine Ushinsky Gaydos (b. 1872-1874, d. 1944). According to one of his grandsons, he would claim that he was Russian only because he worked in the Russian Orthodox Church. The grandson's claim, which he stated that he used to dismiss his grandfather's claim, proved to be a lie.). One of Michael's brother's obituaries also lists their mother's maiden name as "Ushinsky", which should have been Americanized to "Uszinsky" from Magyar. The "Ushinsky" Americanization, however, was deliberate.
