List of names from the censuses of 1828 and 1830. #hungary

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>

<bigger>The Hungarian Land Census of 1828 listed only the heads of
households for purposes of taxation without listing other members of the
household family. Consequently, these lists have limited usefulness for
genealogy research. By contrast, the 1848 Census have proven valuable for
its detailed information concerning family members, their names, ages,
relationships, and place of birth.

I have recently become aware of a 1830 Census and wonder whether it is
available in archives or in books.

Tomer Brunner of Netanya sent me photocopies of pages >from a book
titled, "The Book of Marmaros". One page in particular, that contained
information about my mother's home town in Romania and was written in
Hebrew, listed the names of the Jewish heads of households >from the 1830
Hungarian Census of Kretchinev (now, Craciunesti, Romania). The number of
inhabitants in each household was also included, but without listing
specific names.

A few months earlier, I had recorded all the Jewish heads of the
households >from the 1828 Hungarian Census of the then Hungarian town of
Karacsonyfalva which was also Kretchinev. This information is available
on the Mormon's microfilm, FHL 0623055, The Hungarian Land Census of

Both censuses are presented below for comparison of names. In reading the
European style handwritten names >from the 1828 Census, I tried to be
faithful to the exact spelling although at times I was forced to guess
some of the characters. Robert Klein (my son) translated the Hebrew names
from the 1830 Census that were printed without vowel markings. The
designation, (w) refers to the husband's widow. Bear in mind, the names
from the 1828 census were written according to Hungarian pronunciations.
For example, Deics is equivalent to Deutsch, Vizel is equivalent to
Wiesel, etc.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone that may have information about
the existence of the 1830 census. Was this census held through the
Hungarian empire or was it a local phenomenon? Does the census contain
additional information about the inhabitants, i.e., names, ages, place of
birth, etc.?
