Mihály Galgóczy was the third of the seven brothers who received the title of nobility in the first place. His two grandsons, István and Benedek conducted their trial for proving their nobility before Zemplén county between 1724 and 1732. The documents and testimonies used by them during this trial (Zemplén megye levéltára Protoc. I. pag. 60. an. 1724. Fasc. 5. nro. 519. és 579., an. 1732. Prot. II. pag. 189., an. 1732. Fasc. 17. nro. 69.) reveal the family tree of the Mád-Nagytálya line.
In the middle of the 1700s they mostly lived in Tálya in Zemplén county, although the co-beneficiary Mihály already appears as an inhabitant of Mád in the documents. From here they spread to Szántó (belonging to Abaúj county) and to other settlements of the Hegyalja region.
Benedek’s descendants – not yet identified – lived in Ung county. Family tree of the Mád-Nagytálya line is still fragmentary; moreover, they “mixed” with the members of the Ecseg line of Borsod county, with whom they now and then lived in the same settlements, so the separation of the family trees of the two lines is unlikely to be faultless.
The following persons, found in the registy of the Calvinist church of Tálya, have not been fitted into the family tree only fragmentarily known at the present time:

The family migrated to Ung county, more closely to Mogyorós village at around the 1670s. They also proved their nobility here, according to the minutes of the meeting held in Ungvár on 18 May 1775 (page 36). The proving process was proposed by Mihály and his sons, who traced their descent back to Benedek Galgóczy, inhabitant of Nagyhalász (Szabolcs county). In order to corroborate their claim they also pointed out the nobility of Benedek’s brother Ferencz (living in Mád, Zemplén county).
When the proving certificate was issued, in 1775, Mihály had already passed, leaving his underage children behind. So the document was received by his son Miklós. According to contemporary records Mihály had two wives (their names are unknown), and seven sons:
István (died young), Miklós, András and Ádám (died young) from his first wife and
Mihály, György and János (died young) from the second one.
Members of the family living in Ung county in 1890:
László in Mátyucz, a churchwarden of the Calvinist churches of Mátyucz and Vajkócz,
Dániel in Kerész,
István and a few relatives had smaller estates in Mogyorós,
Károly (born on 18 June 1844 in Tarnócz, Ung county) in Ungvár.
Information regarding persons and their descendants are available through the page “For family members” using the “Look for your family members” and “Full family tree” pages.
I appreciate any information from the readers regarding the Galgóczys of Mád, Tálya, Szántó and Hegyalja that would help me fit the above segments into the family
tree, as well as contact with people still living there, having Galgóczy /
Galgóczi / Galgótzy as their family name.
