Newbie for Hungary #hungary

Jeff Malka <malkajef@...>

I am at the start of my Hungary research and would like some advice. I am
researching the

RIEDERMAN family of Turia Remete (near Perecin and Uzhorod) and the

ORNSTEIN/ORENSTEIN family of Komoroew (near Szerednye).

Both villages were Hungarian at the beginning of the 20th century and these
families spoke Magyar and listed themselves as Hungarian. Does JewishGen
have useful databases for these shtetlach? Anything useful I should look for
at the Mormons? I unfortunately cannot read Hungarian and one of my early
tasks would obviously need to be to find out what "Riederman" and "Ornstein"
look like when written in Hungarian registers.

Any and all advice greatly appreciated especially where the archives for
these 2 towns would be located.

Thank you.

Moderator: Both of the places you are seeking were in Ung megye (county), which became part of the new country of Czechoslovakia after the 1921 Treaty of Trianon. The western part of Ung is now in Slovakia. Ungvar, now Uzhgorod, and the eastern part of the county are in the Ukraine. There was a place called Remete in the Szobrancz jaras (district) west of Ungvar. Komorocz was closer to Szerednye in the Ungvar district. The All-Hungary Database includes 1848 census records >from this part of Ung megye. Try using the Soundex alternative to search your names. The FHL has not yet obtained permission to film records in the Uzhorod archives, where many of the Jewish records >from Ung megye now reside.
