Hungary SIG #Hungary Question re: census of Jews in Hernadszentandras #hungary

Jake Jacobs

A posting on Oct. 1 contained images of Jewish census >from hernadczentandras. I did not see my g'g'grandfather listed, though we believe he was born there in 1847, Samuel Goldman, son of Moshe Goldman. Siblings
Was this an incomplete census of Jewish families? Any other ideas why his family would not have been listed?

Records of the 1848 Census for Abauj-Torna are not available on Jewisghgen, but are available through the Hungarian National Archives and the Archives in Kosice, Slovakia. I would like to share copies of images of the records >from this Census for the village of Hernadszentandras (Szent Andras) in this county for those who are interested. Surnames of Jews living in the village at the time were: Cisserman, Fischer, Frumer, Gotfried, Hips, Josef, Los, Medve, Rozenberg, Samuel, Stern, Swarcz, Vasserman, and Veis.

Images of the Census will be available at the links below for 6 days: Hips 1a.jpg Hips 1b.jpg Hips 2a.jpg Hips 2b.jpg Hips 3a.jpg Hips 3b.jpg

These records were obtained thanks to Beth Long who highlighted the existence of microfilms of the 1848 Census for Abauj-Torna County in the Hungarian National Archives through an email to the Hungary SIG sometime ago, and thanks to professional genealogist Andras Koltai who not only located the specific records in the microfilms in the Hungarian Archives but also went the extra mile by obtaining copies of a missing page >from the Kosice Archives which he determined had the originals.
