The All Hungary Database is now three years old and continues to grow
due to H-SIG's dedicated volunteers. The AHD was first published in late
March 2003 with 45,000 records. We were proud to announce that the AHD
had over 140,000 records after one year and over 240,000 records after
two years. Now as of three years, the AHD has over 350,000 records.
That's about 100,000 records added per year, the majority of which are
transcribed by H-SIG members.
We just published an update of the 1869 Census database, thanks to the
incredibly prolific work by Marelynn Zipser. The new records are >from
Zemplen megye. We have additional records in the publication queue, so
the AHD will grow again in the near future.
We are making outstanding progress on current projects, including the
1848 Census, "Other Census," Vital Records, and Holocaust Memorial
projects (project coordinators Robert Neu, Eric Bloch, Sam Schleman,
and Carol Robinson respectively). If you are looking for ways to help,
contact me or the project coordinators. Another way to help is by
photographing Holocaust memorials and/or cemeteries in H-SIG areas.
Remember that we need entire memorials and individual panels as well as
We have accomplished so much due to the dedication of the many
volunteers who have contributed their time and talent to the AHD. All I
can say is Koszonom, Danke, Dakujem, Multumesc, Toda and Thank You!
