Vivian Kahn will provide an overview of the history of Hungary's Jewish community; she’ll also discuss resources for researching roots from the current and former territory of Hungary, including archival records in Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, and Hungary and sources such as burial and military records.
Vivian will describe and provide tips for searching JewishGen's All-Hungary Database, now one of JewishGen's largest all-country databases with close to a million records referring to individuals living in areas that are in present-day Hungary as well as Slovakia, Croatia, northern Serbia, northwestern Romania, and subcarpathian Ukraine. She’ll also talk about other online resources for researching Hungarian Jewish roots.
Vivian Kahn, from Oakland, is coordinator of JewishGen's Hungarian Special Interest Group (H-SIG). Vivian's 18 years of researching her roots in pre-Trianon Hungary has taken her to Hungary, Slovakia, Israel and Salt Lake City.
