I'm happy to announce that our almost year long project is near its
end. The goal was to digitize and transcribe voluminous 1857 Census
from Abauj Torna county.=20
Thanks to your contributions we were able to collect almost 12000
names, very often with full birth dates, occupations, family relations
and other details.
For more information on what is covered, please go to
http://hsig.absolon.eu and click on "1857 Hungarian Census -
Abauj-Torna". The tracking table shows now 98% progress and we
estimate the rest could be done within next two-three weeks, so
hopefully the whole work will be published on JewishGen Hungary
Database before IAJGS. This all couldn't be achieved without hard work
of transcribers and validators, mainly Eric M. Bloch and Peter G.
Bakos. Thanks guys!
In that project we collected info >from enumeration sheets >from 234
towns and villages and 7 districts of city of Kosice/Kassa. In
addition, we found online and transcribed 6 towns >from Zemplen county,
which will be also uploaded together with Abauj-Torna.
Since the 1857 Census contains lots of valuable information, we
decided to continue with another county, Saros megye. On the page
mentioned above there is already section with progress tracking for
Saros (highlighted yellow).
As the acquisition of the records isn't free, I would like to ask you
