The Genealogical Research Division of

Sub-Carpathia Passport Cases


The JewishGen Sub-Carpathia Research Division focuses on parts of the former Hungarian megye (counties) of Bereg, Máramaros, Ugocsa and Ung; which became the eastern-most part of the the newly-formed nation of Czechoslovakia after the First World War (via the 1920 Treaty of Trianon); and which are now located in Zakarpats’ka oblast  of southwestern Ukraine.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum has partnered with the Ukrainian State Archives for over 25 years to copy Holocaust-related records, but they were on microfilm so not broadly accessible without a visit to the museum.  These records are now coming online; you can read a comprehensive press release here

This record set is indexing names from a subset of that collection—those cases that are for Jews who requested passports, from as early as the 1920s through the 1940s.  Both the main requestor’s name and those of their family members are all indexed.

Information in each case will be different, and many contain photos of the applicants.


Thank you to Yarden Lenga, who took the initiative to identify this as a record set of interest and has been indexing the names of passport applicants.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about volunteering for JewishGen’s Sub-Carpathia Research Division, please contact Lara Diamond (

Current Statistics and Totals as of July 2023
