RE: [S-R] Hungarian and Slovak Nobility
- View SourceAll three of these lists seem to be VERY abbreviated. Hungary had one of the
highest proportions of nobility among European countries--about five
percent. Only Poland might have had more. I have the Arcanum DVD which is a
collection of many volumes written about Hungarian noble families. If anyone
is interested in a particular family name, I can do a look-up. Although
almost all of them are written in Hungarian, there are many genealogical
tables and coats of arms included.
- View SourceIt has her listed as Ilona/Julia, presumably because
of the tendency to give the Hungarian form of names.
It is unfortunate that this print-off of the parish
register is so difficult to read. The original was bad
enough, but this print-off is slightly worse.
