Eric M. Bloch

Thanks to the diligent efforts of our dedicated transcription team, I'm
happy to announce completion of the 1848 Jewish census for Saros county,
Hungary after 7 months of work.This census will be extremely valuable to
genealogists with ancestors and relatives >from Saros county.

A total of 9,631 names were transcribed, which include ALL household
members (heads of household, their wives and children, and others such
as teachers and servants).Other information includes town of residence,
age, birthplace, occupation, and relationship to head of household.A
total of 343 towns of residence were included.

A general description of the 1848 census may be found at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/Census1848.htmSome variation
in the general transcription rules were made during transcription of the
Saros census, particularly with regard to suffixes which occasionally
appeared with town names and surnames.

To help us recover the cost of acquiring this important census >from the
Slovak archive in Presov, contributors of $100 or more to the Slovak
Archives Records Project found on the JewishGen, Special JewishGen
Projects donations page will be immediately entitled to receive a copy
of the completed Excel spreadsheet with all the data. This data will NOT
be available to the general public for at least one year, when it will
be added to the All-Hungary Database on JewishGen.

If you would like to make a contribution, please go to:
enter your contribution in the box for Slovak Archives Records
Project.Forward to me a copy of your electronic receipt and I’ll send
the spreadsheet.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me off-list.
