1869 Census Project

At this time, H-SIG does not have an organized 1869 census project, though we do anticipate having such a project in the future.  There are several H-SIG members who have chosen to transcribe 1869 census records from LDS microfilms of personal interest to them.  If you are interested in transcribing 1869 census records, please review the following instructions before beginning your project:

  1. Please contact Marelynn Zipser to provide her to let her know that you plan on transcribing 1869 census records. It is possible that she will be able to provide digital versions of the census records for your use. 
  2. H-SIG has developed templates for the transcription of vital records.  Follow JewishGen rules for transcribing data, which are located at: Transcription Rules .  In particular, be aware of the following guidelines for entering data:

    a)    All surnames must be entered in CAPITAL LETTERS, for example WEINBERGER.
    b)    Enter towns exactly as entered in the record – do not correct the spelling or enter alternative names such as the modern town name.
    c)    Enter the jaras as spelled in the record.  If there is no jaras in the records, enter the jaras as spelled in the Radix - 1882 gazetteer of Hungary.  The 1882 gazetteer was chosen because it is available on-line.
    d)    Enter the megye as spelled in the record.  If there is no megye in the records, enter the megye as spelled in the Radix - 1882 gazetteer of Hungary.
    e)    If you have any other questions about using the templates, please contact Marelynn Zipser.
