Hungarian Civil Registration at www.familysearch.org

As we all know, it is almost impossible to have enough information as we do our research. We are always looking for more resources to find our families. The record collections available  at www.familysearch.org continue to provide great resources for those searching for their Jewish ancestors.
One of the newest databases should be of great help for those with Hungarian families. The Hungarian Civil Registration (1895-1980) records have started to be added to the collections. As of now, this database consists of over 5,6000,000 images of births, marriages and deaths. Those include births to 1920, marriages to 1950, and deaths to 1980 reported to and recorded by civil registrars. The coverage varies by locality. This is a collection that will be continually added to as the records become available.

In order to locate the collection, visit www.familysearch.org.


At the bottom of the title page, there is a map of the world and a list of the different locations covered by the collections.


At this point select the Continental Europe Collection. The complete list of available databases will appear, from those select the one containing the Hungarian Civil Registration records.

As of this time the collection is not name searchable, however until that time the records can be searched by location, which can be very helpful.
