Re: Slovakia civil registration records #records #slovakia

Vivian Kahn

JewishGen's Hungarian Research Division has a Slovak Archives Project that is undertaking digitization and transcription of all of the the Hungarian civil registration records held by Slovak Archives. Peter Absolon, our researcher, started in archives in eastern Slovakia, close to his base in Kosice and is working his way across the country as time and funds allow.  Because of privacy rules, records are only available for births, deaths, and marriages more than 100 years ago.

Sarah Feuerstein, the Hungarian Division's Vital Records Coordinator, needs qualified transcribers to help translate the records. If you can do so, please contact me off-list. We also need donations to allow this work to move forward. To donate, go to JewishGen's Generosity Page and donate to the Hungarian Division's General Fund.
