I am pleased to announce a major update to the JewishGen Hungarian Database of approximately 80,000 new vital records, bringing the total number of vital records on-line to over 360,000. The total number of records in the database is now around 900,000.
Stomfa, Szilsarkany, Papa, Petroha,Kapolcs, Bokony, Sopron, Duna-Szerdahely, Kiraly-Helmecz, Ujfeherto,Fehergyarmat, Galszecs, Sztropko, Mezokasony, Pozsony and Budapest, including the Pest Orthodox records.
There are several things of particular note in this update.
- The inclusion of both neolog and orthodox marriages (partial) from Pozsony, now Bratislava, which records only became accessible relatively recently.
- The inclusion of the records for Kiraly-Helmecz, which are not available from LDS.
- The completion of all the births and marriages for Pest. There are over 80,000 Pest births alone.
