The Hungarian Research Division is pleased to announce an update to the Other Hungarian Census database, specifically the data for the counties of Trencsen and Pest-Pilis-Solt. 

Data for Trencsen helped form the original basis for the Other Hungarian Census back in 2002.  Over 7,000 Trencsen records from 1794 to 1821 have now been revised.  This includes: 

1.    The addition of almost 1,000 new records 
2.    Corrections to errors in the original 2002 submission 
3.    Added the number of servants in each household 
4.    Added the occupations of head-of-household 
5.    Added translations of additional Latin notations where possible 
6.    Revised reference information 

For Pest-Pilis-Solt, revisions have been made to more clearly show family groupings.

In order to help us continue to acquire and transcribe additional 18th and 19th century Hungarian Jewish census records, contributions to the Hungarian Census Records project are always welcome.  Please visit <https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=15>

Many thanks to Hungarian Other Census Coordinator Eric Bloch, Other Census project volunteers and donors, and JewishGen staffers Alex Kotovskiy and Avraham Groll who all contributed to this effort. Please contact Eric off-list at bloch@... with any questions.
