Re: How were Hungary censuses conducted? #hungary

Yes,  the age discrepancy between these 2 Salis is another complication I must explore further. The 1829 birth date for Sallie Klein Jolesz might be an error, or it might be a faulty transcription meant to read 1819 (as you point out, a woman born in 1829 could not have given birth to a son in 1840). In any case, my original question remains: How was the census information gathered, and over how long a period (days, weeks, months?) was the information collected?
