1848 and 1857 Hungarian Censuses #hungary #slovakia

Hi,

I am researching my Weinberger family from Svidnik, Slovakia and my Pas[z]ternak family from Malczo / Malyczo, Slovakia, which was part of Hungary in the 19th century. Searching on JewishGen, I have found references to members of these families on the 1848 and 1857 Hungarian censuses, however there is no link to a digitized scan of these censuses. In contrast, I have found links to digitized scans of the 1869 census, which can be found on FamilySearch. Is there a way to see a digitized scan of these earlier censuses?

More broadly, is there additional documentation that exists from the 19th century for these towns in Slovakia? I would love to be able to trace these families further back in time. 

Thank You,
Jeremy Lehmann

Hi,

The 1857 census images are linked to the records, just click on the underlined surname. The 1848 census images can be requested from JewishGen (ask Vivian Kahn or Eric Bloch).

Malcov and Stropkov records are on FamilySearch (Malcov in books of Bardejov rabbinate, Stropkov in its own books). Bardejov is indexed on FS, Stropkov is indexed on JG. But both towns don't go further back than 1842 (Bardejov) or 1851 (Stropkov).

Happy Friday,

I have found that there are also some records from the Zborov (another town on northern Saros county) filming with detail. For an overview of what I know of Saros county LDS films, you can see: https://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/resource/fhc.htm

Stay safe,

Are there any Slovakian (what was Hungary) Jewish records available for the 18th century?  I have a Gottfried ancestor who is recorded as being born ca. 1795 - 1800 in Ulics (documented in the JewishGen 1857 Census and Hungarian Deaths databases, as well as the 1848 census).  I would dearly like to find a birth record and/or contemporaneous or at least earlier record for him and/or his family from Slovakia.

No, the Hungarian Jewish records start in 1840's only. There could be very few exceptions that have years 1830's available, but definitely not Ulics.
