Passports, Passport Applications & Photos
Data compiled and transcribed by Peter Absolon


This database has been created to allow researchers to find passports, passport applications and personal photos. The records in the first batch (containing 88 names) have been found in AMK (Archiv mesta Kosice – Kosice Municipal Archive).

The dataset has been designed to accommodate further findings and acquisitions from various Hungarian and Slovak archives (not only from Kosice).

The Database

The database includes the following fields:

  • Sheet number (running number)
  • Surname
  • Birth Surname
  • Given Name
  • Passport issued date
  • Birth date (or age)
  • Place of birth
  • Comment
  • Other names

We believe this dataset can be valued addition to other vital and census records, allowing researchers to find the photographs of their family members, that might not exist elsewhere.
