Civil Registrations #hungary

i don't know if there are any lists of emigrants after the
revolution, since most of them left illegally as refugees. at the
time, entire trainloads, often including the train crew, crossed the
border into austria, without proper travel documents, and requested
asylum.

i know a little bit about my own family, where we had to pretend that
my father had abandoned us (my mother and me), so that the government
wouldn't confiscate our property. and because all mail was being
monitored, our letters were not addressed to him, and we had to be
careful with what we said.

as an interesting footnote, we left after the revolution on legal
exit passports, which were quite rare. and if there is, probably, a
record of it, that would be very much the exception rather than the
rule.

allows one to trace Hungarians since the War? I found some of my
family listed as survivors in the Nevek Klarsfeld, but I don't know
how to find what happened next. Some of the earlier birth and
marriage records have comments at the end of the row about
conversion or death. The Joint sometimes has emigration cards with a
bit of info. I've also used the Boros Lajos burial record to try to
connect to names.

I just wondered if there were available post-1945 city directories
or emigration lists since the Revolution.

Tracking those who survived can sometimes be a real challenge. One place I check is civil marriage records >from mid-1945 through the end of 1947. In some places (like Debrecen, for example), there are a surprising number of Jewish marriages during that period. Many of them are second marriages of those whose spouses died in the Holocaust, and it can give you clues about other surnames to look for.

Many thanks to all the wonderful people who had responses regarding how to deal with "freezing" when
browsing Hungarian civil registration pages on the LDS site.  I've switched browsers, made adjustments to
cookies, and now I can breeze through the pages without shutting down after 9 pages.  Hopes this helps
anyone else experiencing the same problem.
