I am happy to report that finally all the Hungarian uploads of this past year made it into the databases. We must thank JewishGen’s new Database Administrator, Scott Seidenstock, who put his shoulders into clearing the huge backlog for all the Research Divisions/SIGs at JewishGen. We now have over 36,000 newly uploaded entries in the JewishGen Hungary Database. Some of these are additions to previous collections, others are new place names.
The list of Birth, Marriage, and Death Records is as follows:
Arpasto BMD, Berczel D, Bethlen BMD, Brasso BMD, Bonyhad BMD, Gyongyos M, Hidalmas BD, Kemecse BMD, Liptoszentmiklos D, Munkacs D, Nagykoros B, Nagyvarad BMD, Nyitra BM, Oradna BMD, Szendro MD, Szabadka BM, Szekesfehervar BM, Zsadany MD.

The work is ongoing: A new upload is prepped right now to be submitted in the near future, new material is acquired almost weekly, and our volunteers are busy at transcribing the wealth of incoming material.
I do have to appeal to you, though, in that all these acquisitions do not come cheap — we constantly need to replenish our funds. So, whenever you have a successful search, please think of us with a donation, no matter how small, every dollar counts. Likewise, if you would like us to acquire registers from a specific town or area, let us know and we will look into the matter. If we find that it is possible to hire a photographer to get the images, you can contribute to offset the cost. And finally, your donations to the Hungarian funds, even if for no specific purposes, are always welcome.
