Slovakia Church Books, 1592-1910 - Guide To The Evangelical Records


I noticed the other day that FamilySearch had added a new database of use to those with Hungarian and Slovakian ancestors. They added the Slovakia Church Books, 1592-1910 database on March 22nd. I've personally been making great use of these records. The father-in-law of a friend of mine came from this area, along with various noble cousins of mine. I know these records can seem daunting to the researcher unversed in Hungarian or Slovakian research. The fact that the borders and names of towns changed constantly can give you a headache, too. I decided that creating a guide to these records would not only help me, but would help other researchers as well. I'm going to create a separate guide (blog post) for each religion.

Quick links to the other guides: 
This guide is focused on the Evangelical church records within this database.

NOTE: I have found four (4) errors within this database. Four towns are listed in the Evangelical church records in the database, that are NOT Evangelical. They are Reformed church records. These towns are in the guide below, in italics and noting that they are actually Reformed and not Evangelical. They are the following towns:

Čiližská Radvaň, Dunajská Streda District
Kľúčovec, Dunajská Streda District
Veľký Meder, Dunajská Streda District
Diakovce, Šaľa District

Ancestry.com's Hungarian Civil Registration Records

Ancestry.com has added a new database today called Hungary, Civil Registration, 1799-1978. I'd like to discuss some errors and issues I have with this database.

First off, I'm not entirely sure why the content is listed as beginning in 1799, since civil registration didn't begin in Hungary until October 1, 1895. From what I can see there are no images available for browsing and minimal indexes are available. The source information states the following for the database:

Original data: Hungary, Civil Registration, 1895-1980. Salt Lake City, Utah: FamilySearch, 2013.
These indexes came from FamilySearch, where they are easily browsable and searchable (for the sliver of what has been indexed so far). For Free. I began to wonder if the indexes were indeed one and the same from FamilySearch, so I did some searching. I know for a fact that I indexed and arbitrated the civil registration records for the town of Szentmihály in Szabolcs county, where my great-grandfather was born. I …

Austria, Vienna Population Cards, 1850-1896

The FamilySearch database entitled Austria, Vienna Population Cards, 1850-1896 documented local residents and travelers living in Vienna for the time period of 1850 through 1896, with the original documents being housed in the Wiener Stadt- und Landesarchiv (Vienna City and Provincial Archives). These records have been preserved on microfilm through the LDS and consists of 3,173 microfilm, which can be reviewed here in the microfilm catalog. Although there lacks to be a complete index for this collection, a great deal has already been indexed and provided online. I personally found the search form for this database to be rather limiting, with it not providing an option to search for an individual's place of birth, so I figured out a work-around.

Running a basic search for Hungary in the "Any Place" section on FamilySearch pulls back over 31 million results. We can restrict these results to specific Collections through the filter options on the bottom left of the search to…

Hungarian Funeral Notices & Family Relationship Terms List

An often overlooked Hungarian collection on FamilySearch holds a treasure trove of genealogical information. Hungary Funeral Notices, 1840-1990are printed funeral or death notices, similar to obituaries in other counties, and the originals are currently held at the National Széchényi Library (Országos Széchényi Könyvtár, or OSZK) in Budapest, Hungary. Over a quarter of the collection covers Budapest and the remainder for the rest of Hungary, although I have seen notices for individuals in Austria, Germany and what is now Croatia, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia. The funeral notices were preserved on microfilm by the LDS between 2003-2006 and consists of 582 microfilm and can be reviewed in the microfilm catalog. These were later digitized (accessible through both links above), but 9 microfilm still remain to be digitized. It's unclear why Syatmárz, Syecsez, Syeibert, and Syékely are spelled with SY, when it should be SZ.
