The JewishGen Hungarian Special Interest Group (H-SIG) is transcribing vital records from LDS microfilms, including death records.  The original data were created by rabbis in each community (or for small communities, in centralized district registers) as required by the Emperor.  These records are handwritten in German, Hebrew, or Hungarian, and date between 1800-1914.

Database Fields

The database includes the following fields:

  • Name — Surname and Given Name(s) of the deceased.
  • Date of Death — Death Date: Day-Month-Year.
  • Father — Father’s Given Name(s) – the first name of the person’s father.
  • Mother — The Given Name(s) and Maiden Name of the person’s mother.
  • Town — The Town where the death occurred, and the Town where the death was registered.
  • Jaras / Meyge — The District and County of the Town where the death was registered.
  • Comments — Other useful information in the record, such as the town of birth, cause of death, marital status, age, etc.
  • Source — LDS Microfilm Number, used to order the microfilm from an LDS Family History Center, or other source.
  • Record Number — The purpose of the record number is to aid in finding the original record on the microfilm or other source of vital records.  We are now standardizing on the format PPP-NN, where PPP represents the page number within a film, or volume, and NN represents the item number on that page.  Some older records may have the system YYYY-N (where YYYY=the year of the record and N=the record number from that year associated with the record) or simply the number associated with a record for small towns.

Notes on Searching the Database

In addition to the usual search of surnames and towns, you can use the global text search of all fields to find all entries for a particular county (megye), given name, or LDS microfilm number.

If you are searching for a hyphenated town name or county, you must enter only the name before the hyphen or after the hyphen, but not both. At this time, the search engine is not capable of handling hyphenated names. JewishGen technicians are working on this problem.

It should be understood by all researchers that these are index files, and no attempt was made to replicate all the data in the original registers.  Researchers should go to the source record, wherever possible, to obtain additional information such as witnesses, notes by the registrar, and other information.

Creation of the Database

The database was assembled by volunteers from the JewishGen Hungarian Special Interest Group (H-SIG), serving as transcribers, data entry, and validators, and we thank them for their hard work.

We wish to thank the Magyar Országos Levéltár (Hungarian National Archives) for granting permission to create the index of death records.  Lastly we thank the support team from JewishGen: Warren Blatt, Michael Tobias and Joyce Field.

Contents of the Database

There are about 520,000 vital records in the database to date: Approximately 310,000 birth, 60,000 marriage, and 150,000 death records.
