Budapest and Pest-Pilis-Solt Jewish Censuses #hungary


Vivian Kahn
 

I am very pleased to announce that after 20 months of effort by a dedicated team of transcribers and a validator, transcription of the Budapest and Pest-Pilis-Solt megye Jewish censuses has been completed, with over 24,000 records included.  This census will be extremely valuable to genealogists with ancestors and relatives from the Budapest area.  

This accomplishment would not have been possible without the perseverance and skillful leadership of Eric Bloch, the project coordinator, and his team of volunteers. Thanks are particularly due to Shaul Berger, Judy Petersen, Mort Rumberg, Errol Schneegurt, and Michael Taub for their tireless work on this important project.

The censuses include the years 1781-82, 1785-1786, 1788, 1792-93, 1795-1796, 1798, 1801, 1811-12, and 1817-46. 

Towns include Buda, Pest, Abony, Acsa, Akaszto, Alberti, Almas, Alpar, Also-Dabas, Also-Nyaregyhaza, Aporka, Apostag, Aszod, Battya, Benye, Bia, Bicske, Bogdany, Boldogh, Bugyi, Csaba, Csanad, Csaszartöltes, Czegled, Csep, Csik-Tarcsa, Czinkota, Csömör, Dab, Dany, Domony, Dömsöd, Duka, Dusnok, Ecser, Fajsz, Farmos, Felsö-Dabas, Felso-Nyaregyhaza, Gomba, Gyögye, Gyömrö, Gyon, Haraszti, Harta, Heviz, Heviz-Györk, Iklad, Irsa, Isaszeg, Izsak, Janoshida, Jeneö, Kakony, Kakucs, Kalocsa, Kartal, Kava, Kecske, Kecskemeth, Keczell, Kerepes, Kis-Körös, Kis-Torbagy, Kis-Ujfalu, Koka, Macsa, Maglod, Majoshaza, Mende, Miske, Nad-Udvar, Nagy-Abony, Nagy-Kartal, Nagy-Tarcsa, O-Kecske, Ocsa, Ordas-Haza, Orkeny, Palota, Pand, Pataj, Peczel, Pereg, Pilis, Pomaz, Püspök-Hatvan, Rakos-Csaba, Rakos-Keresztur, Raczkeve, Ratot, Rekason, Saap, Sari, Sükösd, Sülly, Szele, Szent-Istvan, Szent-Lazlo, Szent-Lörincz-Kata, Szent-Marton-Kata, Szetsö, Szeyö, Sziget-Szent-Miklos, Sziget Ujfalu, Szöd, Tapio-Bicske, Tapio-Sag, Tapio-Süly, Tapio-Szele, Tass, Tatar-Sent-Györgyi, Teteny, Tinnye, Tököle, Török-Balint, Törtel, Toszeg, Toth-Almas, Toth-Gyork, Tura, Uj-Kecske, Uri,  Vacz, Vacz-Szent-Laszlo, Vadkert, Valko, Vasad, Vecses, Versegh, Vissegrad, Vörösvar, Zsambek, and Zsido.

The majority of the records include head of household, whether married or not, their occupation, and the number of sons, daughters, siblings, other relatives, and servants.  Many of the 1782 records for Pest-Pilis-Solt (excluding Buda and Pest) include the entire family and their ages.  Some of the 1838-1843, and 1845 Buda records include the wife’s name.

To help recover the cost of acquiring these censuses from the Hungarian National Archive, contributors of $100 or more will be immediately entitled to receive a copy of the completed Excel spreadsheet with all the data. If you would like to make a contribution, please go to: https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=15 and enter your contribution in the box for Hungarian General Fund, and earmark the contribution specifically for the Budapest census by forwarding a copy of your electronic receipt to me <vkahn@...>  and to Eric  <bloch@...> who will send the spreadsheet.
