      Dear Thomas,



      From my experience, whatever you search on will give you all instances of
      its occurrence in ANY of the databases. Focusing in on a single database,
      such as the 1715 Census, will not increase your chances.

      Thanks, Janet.

      I just tried the for the 17th century Urbaria in Arcanum
      http://www.arcanum <http://www.arcanum.hu/mol/> hu/mol/ to see who lived in
      Eisdorf/Zakocz/Zsakocz before
      1715 (perhaps more Girusses), but the darn search engine makes me
      despondent. I don't seem to pull up the village. A lists on the right only
      show rows of numbers, not names.

      How do I look? I tried the instructions by Peter Nagy from Centroconsult
      http://www.centroco <http://www.centroconsult.sk/genealogy/census.html>
      nsult.sk/genealogy/census.html
      and Bill Tarkulich at http://www.iabsi
      <http://www.iabsi.com/gen/public/CensusMain.htm>
      com/gen/public/CensusMain.htm
      but I still only get a search form in Magyar that drives me bonkers.

      Are there plans from Arcanum to ever have an English version? I have no
      problems paying them--if only I knew how, and for what (if Zsakocz in the
      Zips is in any of the 17th century Urbaria).

      Any suggestions,

      Thomas
