Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: 1715 Census On-Line #hungary


Hi Vivian:
I spent hours going throught the website and was appalled to see no Jewish
names at all in the Sopron Moson Gyor area, where my family came from. There
was not one name called Stricker. But they did explain the origin of the
It was interesting and thank you for the lead.
Is the 1828 census on the same website ? I could not find it...
Thanks for the tip - my Hungarian is improving...

I've made yet another find in cyberspace.

If you are fortunate enough to know where your family was living in
1715 you will be ecstatic to learn that the 1715 Census can now be
found on-line at the Hungarian State Archives website! The search
engine is in Hungarian and the records are, like the 1828 Census, in
Latin, but with a bit of effort it's possible to find and download
pages >from the census.

Go to

Enter the name of the place (wild cards are OK) in the space that says
Helyseg and click on Kereses (search)

What you will get is a list of names of taxpayers (Adozok neve) >from
that place.

Click on the number that appears below the names next to the word
Oldalszam and you will see an image of the page >from the census.

It is very interesting to see that there are a number of Jewish taxpayers
listed, especially in larger cities. Try entering names in space under
Adozok and see what comes up. What you will get at the lower right side of the
screen is a list of places where the name appears. Click on the name of the
place and the list of names for that place will be displayed above. Click on
the numbers below the entry to see images of the pages for that community.

This is a very interesting resource even if you don't find anything!
