Re: Sources for district XIII in Budapest, 1895-1925 #hungary


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 If it's still gibberish, email 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.

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
