Israel Guttman

I am looking for birth records 1936 for the following towns: Sátoraljaújhely, Fehérgyarmat, Nyíregyháza and Tiszadada if you know where I can view them I would appreciate any help.

I can recommend a researcher who did excellent work for me, including with documents in Sátoraljaújhely, is Kareaz Vandor. info@...

Karesz is based in Budapest, but is extremely knowledgable in and covers all of Hungary.

I went to hungary February 2020 to do research on my family side and hired Karesz Vandor +36305466950 info@... In three days we got more vital stat and other info then I could have find in months doing the "traditional" search.  I recommend him highly this is his field and its been great to work with him.  I am planing to go back to do some more research in some other communities and will use him again.  If you need more info you can email me at shamianjudith@...

    We spent  5 days at the Zemplen County Records Center in Satoraljaujhely about 4-5 years ago with Karesz and a young Masters student from Israel referred by her Professor at the University of Haifa, who is a Reichard descendant and was aware of our research project.  Her Professor wanted her to get experience in the field. We used two lap top computers to record the information and then merged the data at the end of the project.  As a result we obtained about 100 "hits" on my family, which we hadn't been able to do previously on our own.  We also toured the "new" cemetery in Satoraljaujhely and were able to walk the whole site, since it had been recently cleared,. finding our family members' tombstones in one specific area,  Karesz speaks multiple languages and also has worked as a tour guide, He took us to see nearby locations of Jewish interest.  He is great to work with, knows the Record Center documentation system and is very accommodating.  We rented a 2 bedroom condo nearby which we shared and it worked out very well. The people at the Records Center speak very little English and we do not speak Hungarian, hence it was very important to the success of our research study to have Karesz with us.
    My grandfather was born in Tolcsva in 1873 and went to the US in 1891. My great-great-grandfather and great-great-great-father were born in Satoraljaujhely.

1936 births will not be public for decades yet. (The new law is so insanely badly written that many archives are erring on the side of caution and using 130 years as the cutoff for birth records.) You'll definitely need someone like Karesz to get any sort of access. (You basically need "academic research" credentials, because being a direct descendant will only get you extracts, with the usual chicken-and-egg requirement of knowing exactly what's in the record so that you can find out what's in it.)
