53,000 New #Subcarpathia Records on JewishGen #subcarpathia

JewishGen is pleased to announce that over 53,000 records have been
added to our Sub-Carpathia Vital Records collection, which can be
searched via JewishGen's Hungary and Ukraine databases, as well as
through the Unified Search, for a total of over 100,000 records! The
new records include:

34209 births
5023 marriages
13984 deaths

You can access JewishGen’s Hungary Database by clicking here:

The addition of these records was made possible by the hard work of
many volunteers who translated, transcribed, and validated the
records. We greatly appreciate their dedication.

We can use your financial help, which will go towards paying local
researchers for their time in photographing additional records. You
can donate to our project here:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=50
and selecting the Sub-Carpathia SIG General Fund. Your donation is
tax deductible, if you are a US citizen. Donations of $180 or more
also get you access to indexed records at they are completed, before
they are available on JewishGen.

We also could use the help of those who are fluent in Hungarian and
Czech, to help add additional information to the indexed records.

Answers to some questions that come up after I send these sorts of
announcements:
Q: Do you have records for my specific town? When do you expect to
get those records?
A: Unfortunately I cannot address each specific town/village. We plan
to get records for all towns in Subcarpathia. Even during the best of
times, it's difficult to predict what towns' records I'll be getting
when. Currently, Ukraine's archives have sporadic closures due to
COVID-19, so I definitely can't predict anything. However, you can
assist in indexing records we already have images for. And even if we
don't have records for your specific town just yet, you likely had
relatives who lived in towns across the region. I personally have
indexed records from towns for which I had no known family connection,
only to be surprised (and delighted) to find cousins.

Q: Can you send me digital images for a record that I found indexed on
JewishGen?
A: Stay tuned. How to do that will be announced in the next couple of months.
