Hungary: Database update adds 90,000 records

Those researching Jewish roots in Hungary should know that JewishGen's All-Hungarian Database has been updated with some 90,000 new vital records.

The database now holds nearly 700,000 records (100,000 birth, 35,000 death and 12,500 marriage), for Bercel, Chropo, Debrecen, Galszecs, Gyor, Homonna, Kiskunfelegyhaza, Kisvarda, Mandok, Nagykallo, Nyirbator, Nyirkarasz, Szinyer-varalji, Tarcal, Tokaj and Tolcsva.

Additionally, Budapest births through 1864 and the majority of Miskolchave births have been completed.

Additional towns being worked on now include Budapest, Eger, Gyongyos, Kosice, Miskolc, Moson, Presov and Stropkov.

Such projects depend on numerous volunteers who contribute time and effort to make records available to researchers of today and tomorrow.
