Hungary SIG #Hungary Meaning of "Servant" in 18th and 19th Century Hungarian Censuses #hungary


Hilary Osofsky
 

There are two censuses of Hunszdorf (now Huncovce, Slovakia) that contain unusual references to servitude with respect to my ancestor/s, Marcus Wolf/f, for which I've been unable to obtain a meaningful explanation - although perhaps the translation is at the bottom of this.

The census of 1771 describes Marcus Wolff as being "in Hungary since 1729; servant of the Jewish community."

And according to the census of 1838, Marcus Wolf was "extremely poor, occupation as a servant to endure."

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has any insight into these comments.

Thank you.
