Updates: April 2011

April was a slow month here at Hungary Exchange. I have been busy with research for clients and also with some family medical issues going on, so I haven't been able to index any marriages at all. Want to volunteer?! Here's a summary of what was added during the month of April:


Digital Books
New Biographies added, as well as various books pertaining to the History of Hungary (including church, counties and various general history related books).

Surname Database
Adams, Chudi, Chudy, Dolgos, Fulajtar, Garai, Haftl, Haluska, Hornyák, Iván, Koroknai, Koroknay, Matray, Nagy, Plachetka, Polgar, Rozgany, Simon, Soka, Szabo, Viczkus, Viszkus, Vizkus, Zámbori, Zsoka

Updates: March 2011

Some new resources were added to Hungary Exchange during the month of March. I was able to transcribe and upload marriages for the Hungarian Marriage Project, made a substantial update to the Digital Books collection and also added a few surnames that fellow research have submitted. Here's a quick summary of everything added this past month:


Digital Books
For the Digital Books database, I added the following categories: Biographies, Family Archives and Family Histories. Please note that although the majority of these books are in Hungarian, you can very easily search the book your family's surnames or towns. You never know what you'll find! If you know of any Hungary-related Digital Books online that are 100% viewable and free from copyrights, please let me know!

Hungarian Marriage Project
I transcribed and uploaded marriage for three (3) parishes this month. They are the following:

Dör, Sopron County
Roman Catholic church
1805-1895, 783 marriages

Gáva, Szabolcs County
Reformed church
1743-1895, 1,127 marriages

Tiszaberczel, Szabolcs County
Reformed church
1773-1895, 1,282 marriages

That's 3,193 marriages this month! Woo hoo!


Surname Database
This database was a bit slow this month, but that's alright. Everyone is busy getting excited about spring and spending less time at the computer! Here are the following surnames added this month, that others are researching: Gabony, Kiss, Magyar, Muhari. Researching any of these names? Check out the database and send them an email!
