One possible answer is that only these six families
lived in the "town" proper. THe others might have been
in the suburbs or whatever. What we have is the Census
for the town itself and NOT the county.

households in Temesvar.
I just finished transcribing it for the All-Hungary
Database. I also found
that low number surprising and difficult to accept.
However, the census has a
very clear beginning and end. As Peter Hidas stated:
It is obviously
incomplete. Maybe there is another 1848 Jewish
Census in the Hungarian State Archives.
