Thank you all for your replies.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I now understand the difficulties I have to deal with.
I do have one note though: my parents visited the Satu-Mare district =
last month and in one of the villages, Turt, they 'bought' their way =
into the town hall's vital records archive.
They managed to picture (no xerox machines there) a couple of pages with =
birth records >from 1947-1950 and even >from 1924. The archivist told them =
that records older than 1895, are kept in the national archives in =
Bucharest. (which makes me wonder about records >from this area prior to =
the Treaty of Trianon which should be in Budapest ...)
Anyway, thanks again everyone.

Moderator VK: Arik's original message (see below) inquired about the availability of census data >from Transylvania. As explained in earlier messages, the area in question was covered by several Hungarian national censuses conducted prior to the Treaty of Trianon, which ceded this area to Romania. Vital records, which were collected by the local rabbi prior to 1895, are a different matter. Copies of these records were supposed to be turned over to the county or regional archives and may be available to those who visit Romania or hire researchers with access to these sources archives. Has anyone found pre-1895 vital records >from areas in presentday Romania in the Hungarian State archives?
Thanks in advance,
