To date, we have accumulated a total of 7,635 entries into our 1828
Hungarian Property Tax Census database. Kudos to all of our volunteers.
Unfortunately, we are not yet on-line with the database. JewishGen has
been so successful in its efforts to host all the various SIG databases,
there is now a backlog to get them on-line. We have not been given a
timetable, but are told it will be soon. We need to be patient.
In the meantime, transcription of the microfilms continues. WE NEED
MORE VOLUNTEERS! With many of our volunteers facing other summertime
commitments, our progress has slowed. If you're facing a hot summer (or
cold winter for our southern hemisphere friends) and would like to find
comfort at your local FHC library, please join our group and help us
transcribe the 1828 Census microfilms. If you'd like to participate in
this worthwhile and exciting project, please contact me at the e-mail
address noted below.
