Re: Sarospatak Archives #hungary

Dear Amos Zezmer,

The Jewish records of Nagykapos/Velke Kapusany (as like the records
of Szobranc/Sobrance) are kept in Ungvar/Uzhhorod. Please remind that
Nagykapos (and Szobranc) located in the formerly Ung County, but
Sarospatak is in Zemplen. And the Archives of Zemplen is in the old
county-town Satoraljaujhely, instead of Sarospatak.

So I'm surprised if the Sarospatak Archives was allowed to have any
vital record books.

When in Kosice last year, I was told by the secretary of the Jewish
community that the Jewish records for Nagykapos, prior to the late
1800's, can be found in the archives in Sarospatak, northeast of

Does anyone know if this is a fact. And, if so, what are the steps to
accessing these archives?

Thank you.
