I recently learned about the death of Robert Neu, who served for many
years as coordinator of the 1848 Hungarian Jewish Census records
project, which was the first major component of the JewishGen's
collection of Hungarian census records. Even though his health had been
in decline for some time, Robert's enthusiasm and commitment to
Hungarian Jewish family research never waned. Those of you who worked
with him on the 1848 records will recognize that his coordination of
this project was of extraordinary value and will remain a fitting
testament to him. The index of the 1848 census records was one of the
first major additions to JewishGen's Hungarian database and it has helped
hundreds, if not thousands of researchers, trace their Hungarian Jewish families.
