Nograd - Ludany, birth records KLEIN in 1880s #hungary

I'm looking for Jewish synagogue birth records pre civil registration for Ludany in Nograd, specifically the Klein family there, for the children of David Klein and Karolina Klein (I think they were both born Kleins), one of their children was Margit or Maria born in February 1887. My hunting has drawn a blank, I would be so grateful if anyone knows how to locate them. Very many thanks!

Dvorzsák's gazetteer says Jewish residents of both Kis- and Nagy-Ludány were recorded in Szécsény. FamilySearch has browsable images of some of that congregation's records between 1850 and 1885 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/261203).

Very clever detective work, impressive! It's tantalisingly close, Szécsény is at the end of the book and seems to only go up to 1867 for births. The role/film is listed as item 4, so maybe there are more dates on a different film. But much easier to be searching in the right place, ie Szécsény, thank you Julia!

Hi,
My father was Fred Klein, b. 1918, son of Arthur Klein, son of Israel Klein. They lived in Vienna, Austria, however, I don't know where they came from before they landed in Austria.
Sorry if this doesn't help. I thought I would send it to you because you never know if there is a link.

Unfortunately, what's in item 4 on that film is all that FamilySearch has for Szécsény, and it is highly incomplete. There's a summary of what's missing on image 418: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS87-S75H-M?i=417&cat=261203
I interpret it to mean that births between 1868 and 1895 are all missing (among others).

Whenever you find a new location to pursue, it's always a good idea to start with the gazetteers. They were specifically compiled to answer questions like "where's the church" or "where's the registry office".
