Hungary SIG #Hungary Kosice Area Vital Records - update #hungary


Peter Absolon
 

Shalom,

I'm happy to announce that I finished acquiring and transcribing all
available vital records >from Kosice Area (basically all towns and
villages in former Abauj-Torna county, belonging now to Slovakia).

As you can see >from the project status page (http://hsig.absolon.eu),
next database update will include 323 marriage records and 677 death
records >from 95 different registry books. As the records have to
undergo quality control checks, it may take some time until they
appear online.

The 1540 birth records are already available as part of JewishGen
Hungary Database.

So now it is time to start with the records available for city of
Kosice. In other words, another 70 books (covering years 1895-1915)
will have to be flipped through, photographed and transcribed. While
I'm doing it free of charge as my gift to the community, there are
still costs to be paid (various archive fees etc).

Therefore I'd like to ask you again for your kind contributions to
"Hungarian SIG General Fund" to help finalize this project (please
don't forget to send me the donation receipts afterwards for tracking
purposes).

Kind regards,
Peter Absolon
