Read magyar but don't speak it.
Without accent marks you can often get different word meanings.
For example, török = Turkish , while torok = throat
Before WW I, Slovakia was part of Upper Hungary (Felvidék)
So the Hungarian records that the Mormons filmed were for
Upper-Hungary, or the Highlands were for Slovakia.
Think that none of the regional Slovakia State Archives have
equipment for making copies of microfilms.
For Hungary you could write the Hungarian National Archives
in Budapest. But need to write in Hungarian.
The LDS also filmed the records that were in the Hungarian National
Archives in the 1960s.
Look in FH Library catalog under Hungary (not Slovakia)
Microfilms are listed by place name and by religion.
For example, Budapest
Római Katólikus Egyház
Görögkeleti Magyar Egyház
Read 55 entries just under Budapest.
Buda and Pest used to be separate towns.
Some early records may be listed under only one name or the other.
Some abbreviations used for various denominations :
rk.-RK. római katholikus Roman Catholic
gk. GK. görög katholikus Greek Catholic/Byzantine
kg. KG. keleti görög Greek Oriental (Eastern Orthodox)
ag. AG. ágostai Evangelical (Lutheran)
ref. REF. református Reformed (Calvinist)
izr. IZR. izraelita Israelite (Jewish)
For Budapest (city) you need the district name or address to locate
records, which is what your title looks like ?
Also the appropriate megye (county) provincial archives may
have records (probably the more recent records) if outside of
Research in Hungary is regulated by privacy law and records have
to be a certain age before they can be accessed.
birth records : before 1910 (last 90 years N/A)
marriage records : before 1940 (last 60 years N/A)
death records : before 1970 (last 30 years N/A)
In Hungarian the parish church records are titled anyakönyvek.
Kereszteltek Anyakönyve = Baptism Records
Házasultak Anyakönyve = Marriage Records
Halottak Anyakönyve = Death Records
