One of the books that I have gives the regimental histories for each of the IR and Cavalry regiments. As I mentioned to you, I have also been interested in HR6 because my grandfather was in this regiment in the 1890s after it had moved from Oradea to Kassa. I have all of his military papers. But I have not been able to find his father's records for the 1860s. He was also a Hussar but after reviewing the information for you, I now think he may have been in HR10 and not HR6 like his son. I'm ordering those films now. So, you may have helped me too.

It will contain the information about the campaigns and battles for his regiment during those years. The early 1800s was an interesting period during which the Napoleonic Wars were fought. So, I'm sure you would find it pretty interesting. There is a lot of information on HR6 during the 1790s and early 1800s if it turns out that it is the one your ancestor was in. I should tell you that it is written in German but it is fairly easy to translate. Send me a private note and provide me with your email address if you would like to obtain this information.

The charts show regimental recruiting area assignments over an extended period of time.

But if you know the year and the county, this chart will provide you with the correct one. If you can give me that information, I can look it up for you.
