I am very pleased to announce that the first batch of approximately 15,000 records from the 1930 Czechoslovak Census has been added to the Hungary database. These records are from the second Czechoslovak population census, which was conducted on 1 December 1930. (The first Czech census was in 1921. The statistical results of the 1930 Census were published in eight volumes, with a separate volume for housing data. This Census enumerated 136,737 Jews in Slovakia, out of a total Jewish population of 356,830 in all of Czechoslovakia. Slovakia’s Jewish population represented 4.11 percent of the total population of Slovakia.
This database will NOT cover the Czech lands (Czechia, Moravia, Silesia), nor the Subcarpathia (Podkarpatska Rus) area. Page images for this area from the 1921 Czechoslovak Census can be found at https://library.hungaricana.hu/hu/collection/KarpataljaiNepszamlalas1921/ but records are not indexed.
This monumental accomplishment would not have been possible without the efforts of Peter Absolon, who downloaded the images and has been coordinating the work of a volunteer team. For more information about this project and the records, go to https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/hungary/census1930.htm
Thanks to all!
