You're in luck, I was just over there and know the area. Vaci Utca is a long street, now a popular shopping/tourist area on the Pest side, the southern part of it is in Section VIII and the upper part of it in VI. The nearest synagogue is Dohany St. - Dohåny utca 2, 1074 Budapest Hungary (utca means street and isn't capitalised if you're writing them, said 'oot-sa'), the phone is +36 1 343 0420 but I would suggest you contact the Family Research Centre next door, part of the synagogue/memorial museum there. I'm trying to attach this in English but if it opens in Hungarian, try opening it through Google and have it translated there http://www.milev.hu/csalaacutedkutatoacute-koumlzpont.html. If it's still gibberish, email family@milev.hu and give them the details of your basic search. They're really lovely there if you get a chance to go do research in person, and definitely take the synagogue tour, the tour guides are fabulous.

HTH!

I recently discovered that a branch of my FRIEDMAN family >from Ugocsa
megye migrated to Budapest. Specifically, >from a family letter dated
1913, I have an address for Adolf Friedman at 68 Vaci Ut. He had a
grocery store at this address and lived there as well. He and his
wife had five children, and he also had two children >from his first
wife. Except for Adolf, I know no names. Based on the letter, my
guess is that the younger children were born around 1895-1905.

It seems that 68 Vaci Ut is in District XIII. On FamilySearch, the
only civil records for this district are deaths and marriages from
1938 onwards. I would be grateful for pointers to sources (civil
records, business directories, anything) for District XIII for
1895-1925.
