Hungarian Marriages Database
The JewishGen Hungarian Special Interest Group (H-SIG) is transcribing vital records from LDS microfilms, including marriage 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.
The database includes the following fields:
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.
Contents of the DatabaseAs of July 2020, there are 79,629 marriage records.
