Re: Pre 1895 Records from Ugocsa Megye #hungary


Mr. Solomon,
The former Ugocsa County breaked to two parts in 1920. The Northern land became to be part of Czechoslovakia, and the Southern one is in Romania.
In North, the Nagyszolos (Vinogradiv, Selish) was the main Jewish Community, and some records are exist in Transcarpathian Archives, Ukraine.
In South, the Halmi (Halmeu) was the main Jewish Community. The Turcz births, marriages and deaths were registered in Halmi Community until 1895, but unfortunately, those records are missing, probably vanished, destroyed in 1944, or maybe in the 1950-1960's – anyway, there are not in archives, neither in Romania, nor in Ukraine. There are stories that the Halmi Jewish records were transported to Cluj or Bucharest, but I never found exact information about it, and I can't believe if those records are kept today in any archives.
Sadly, the 1848 Jewish census of Ugocsa County also not exist today.
