RE: [S-R] Girus Danielis and Arcanum.com
- 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.

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
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
and Bill Tarkulich at http://www.iabsi
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).
