Milestone for Hungarian Vital Records #hungary #slovakia #romania

Vivian Kahn

JewishGen’s Hungarian Vital Records database has reached a new milestone with the addition of 10,008 new records from places as diverse as Bartfa (Bardejov), Saros megye; Postyen (Piestany) in Nyitra; and Szombathely, the 10th largest city in Hungary. This brings the total number of birth records in the database to more than .5 million with a total of almost 834,000 vital records.

Thanks to Sarah Feuerstein, the Hungarian Research Division’s Vital Records Coordinator, and her team of volunteers. Thanks also to Alex Kotovsky and Avraham Groll for uploading the records to the marvelous JewishGen Hungary Database.

If you’d like to help the Division to acquire records from archives in Hungary, Slovakia, and Romania, please go to to make your donation to the Hungary General Fund or one of our focused accounts.

Thanks to all of the donors and volunteers who have helped to make our database one of JewishGen’s best!
