Jennifer, Andrea and Bill,
The City directories in Hungary were not common in Rural Areas. Other
was the situation in large cities. I just recently posted info about
1900 online Budapest directory. Janos Bogardi published the Timisoara
1910 city directory
of course, this is not relevant to Slovakia.
Janet Kozlay already mentioned the Industry and Trade Directory for 1891 at
This is a very good tool, but the full details are available only for
There is one free possibility, how to exploit the Radix databases
without payment. Go to the surname index:
and insert the surname to the "Surname search" field.
The output will be the occurrence of the surname in all Radix databases,
even the town in the Industry and Trade Directory for 1891, the only one
info which is not possible to retrieve free of charge is the type of
business in the trade directory. Of course, the best way is to pay the
small fee and subscribe to Radix databases.
