Hello all!

I came across these two websites which contain 40-50 million (!) scanned documents of jewish interest, including vital records, marriage certificates etc.

Hungary - Könyvtár:
https://library.hungaricana.hu/

Israel - Israel State Archives:
https://www.archives.gov.il/

I hope this will be helpful.

Shia,

Thank you for posting these resources.  I found that when the first three letters of a name are typed in the search field at the top of
https://library.hungaricana.hu/
it shows a menu of names to choose from.  Very handy since spellings can vary.  The search appears to work for town names also.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Thanks for the search info. I tried it and found this result, but I need help understanding what this document is about.

Any help?

Shia and Sherri,

Thank you very much for your posts. If any Hungarian speakers could provide an overview of the vital records (where to find them, what areas and years are covered), I would be very grateful!

Thank you but ... Is there a way to translate the Hungarian into English?

Susan,

If the words in Hungarian are typed, or clearly written, you can type the words into Google's Hungarian to English translator. 

Put "hungarian to english" into a Google search and the translation function will pop right up.

If the words in Hungarian are handwritten, or difficult to read, you can post a copy of the page to ViewMate and request a Hungarian speaker to try to read it and translate.
