RE: [S-R] 1828 Hungarian Census
- Not difficult at all.
The Family History Library has selected territories microfilmed. For a
small fee you can view them personally.
Records are organized in columnar fashion, with column headings( "headers")
being decoded/translated to English. With this header translation, reading
the census is quite straightforward and easy.

Subject: [S-R] 1828 Hungarian Census
I was looking at some of the oldest messages on this site and found
reference to the 1828 Hungarian census. This caused me to wonder if it
might be accessible to me and if so would it possibly provide some
information we are seeking.
We are looking for birth records of my husband's great-grandfather.
Records, the 1869 Hungarian census, we have found say he was born in
Piszana. Calculating back from his death record, which we have found, the
year would have been about 1825.
Piszana records at the FHL start in 1860 and we have been told that records
from Piszana prior to this were destroyed in WWII in a big fight between the
Russian and German Army.
If we could access the 1828 census we might have some "back hand"
verification that great grandfather's birth did occur in Piszana and we
would also have the names of his mother and father and any older siblings.
We do not have any of this at this time.
Any thought regarding the feasibility of the above?
I suppose searching this record for our ancestor, if we could get it, would
be daunting as we know nothing about Hungarian??????
