I am trying to decipher the handwriting used in the 1869 Hungarian census. It doesn't seem to fall into any one specific type of script. In the entries I am trying to figure out some letters look like Kurrent, some like Roman cursive, and some unlike anything I am familiar with. I am struggling with making sense on a number of entries that would really help me in my family research. Can anyone enlighten me, help me decipher the segments here I am most interested in.

Rokonoknál száltam Eperjesen [=I resided at relatives in Eperjes]
9/21/2020 7:23 AM The second as I can read it: Rokonságnál van Eperjesen
9/26/2020 11:01 AM mint tanuló Tokayban: as a student in Tokay
Rokonainál van Eperjesen: he/she is with his/her relatives in Eperjes.

It's all just plain old cursive, in Hungarian, but not exactly neatly written. It's like all cursives: you can read it if you know what it says.
