There are several gazetteers listing present and former nawes of =
pre-Trianon
(1920) Hungarian localities.

One of the best I've seen is . Magyar Helysegnev-Azonosito Szotar (1992
&1998 ed.) by Gyorgy Lelkes. Another I haven't seen is Magyar Helyseg =
Nev,
by Pal Kosa 1000 page gazeteer, published in Hungary

Last month in Budapest I picked up a copy of:
A T=F6rt=E9nelmi Magyarorsz=E1g Atlasza =E9s adatt=E1ra 1914 (Atlas & =
Gazetteer of

Historic Hungary 1914). by Talma Kiad=F3 published 2001, P=E9cs. ISBN =
963 85683
3 X.

While it does have some general demographics there are no town =
populations
or breakdowns. It has contemporary names and some nice 1:400,000 =
sectional
maps of the old counties, no overlay with new borders however. I got it =
at
F=F3kusz bookstore, a Hungarian chain. www.fo.hu or email a query to
info@fo.hu

Specifically geared to gealogists is my translation and alphabetization =
of
the 1877 Hungarian Gazetteer (Janos Dvorzsak, Magyarorszag Helysegnevtar
(1877) FHL#6000840, [Gazetteer of Hungary] Budapest: Havi F=FCzetek, =
1877),
also includes the current names as well as listing the 1877 populations =
by
religious affiliation and where each worshipped. I have submitted this =
to
my publisher but cannot, at this point estimate when it will be =
available.
