JewishGen Hungarian Database Update - Miskolc & Gary_Deutsch #hungary
We are pleased to announce an update to the JewishGen Hungarian Database.
We have added approximately 14,000 new birth, marriage and death records.
What is more significant is that this update completes the transcription
of all Miskolc vital records available >from the Hungarian National archives
and filmed by the Family History Library of the Mormons.
There are now approximately 36,000 birth, marriage and death records for
Miskolc in the database.
This is due primarily to the efforts and tremendous persistence of Gary
Deutsch, who has worked on these records over a period of five or more
years. Gary has both led a team of volunteers to accomplish this
undertaking, while also transcribing the majority of these records himself.
The volunteers assisting Gary with the most recent records are András
Hirschler, Moshe Lorber and Zvika Oren. A number of other volunteers
assisted with the previous records, already in the database.
We are all grateful to Gary and his team for this major accomplishment.
This is a tremendous contribution to Hungarian-Jewish genealogy.
There are now over 280,000 vital records and over 800,000 total records
in the JewishGen Hungarian Database.
