New material in the Hungarian Databases #hungary


I am happy to report that finally all the Hungarian uploads of this past year made it into the databases. We must thank our new tech-guy, Scott Seidenstock, who put his shoulders into clearing the huge backlog for all the SIGs at JewishGen. In the Hungaran database we have now over 36 000 newly uploaded entries. Some of these are additions to previous collections, others are new place names. The list is as follows: Arpasto BMD, Berczel D, Bethlen BMD, Brasso BMD, Bonyhad BMD, Gyongyos M, Hidalmas BD, Kemecse BMD, Liptoszentmiklos D, Munkacs D, Nagykoros B, Nagyvarad BMD, Nyitra BM, Oradna BMD, Szendro MD, Szabadka BM, Szekesfehervar BM, Zsadany MD.Â

The work is ongoing, a new upload is prepped right now to be submitted in the near future, new material is acquired almost weekly, and our volunteers are busy at transcribing the wealth of incoming material.

I do have to appeal to you, though, in that all these acquisitions do not come cheap, we need to constantly replenish our funds. So, whenever you have a successful search, please, think of us with a donation, no matter how small, every dollar counts. Likewise, if you would like us to acquire registers >from a specific town or area, let us know and we will look into the matter. If we find that it is possible to hire a photographer to get them, you can contribute to offset the cost. And finally, your donations to the Hungarian funds, even if for no specific reasons, are always welcome.
