      The original post went into detail on how to use it.  The records themselves are readable actually -- you can make out the names, dates and cities.

      How do you use the site since it's in Hungarian?

      Hello All,



      I'm sure some of the more experienced has seen this site:



      http://www.hatvany-online.net/Compgen/default.aspx?p=Compgen&mix=1&six=2



      which is the digitised version of the Budapest Civil Records for Births,



      Deaths and Marriages. I think from 1895 to 1920 (which is a difficult



      period to research).



      If you suspect some ancestors moved to Budapest, you will find a reasonably



      extensive record prior to 1920.



      So far I've had 4 confirmations of family that had disappeared into the



      1895-1920 'hole'. They were all born in present day Slovakia near



      Bratislava but they wound up in Budapest for work, or as witnesses to



      marriages etc. There was no family history about this so it was a surprise.



      So it's worth a look.



      To Use:



      The main page should open with "



      BUDAPESTI



      POLGÁRI ANYAKÖNYVEK



      ADATBÁZISA"



      If not, select that from the menu on the left.



      Then move down and you will see 3 open book thumbnails.



      They are:



      1 = Births



      2 = Marriages



      3 = Deaths



      Just click on the thumbnail that you want - eg Marriages (2)



      On the new page, you will find a field called "Családnév" (family name).



      Enter your family name and press <return> or <enter> Do not click on any



      buttons.



      If you get a 0 result "Összesen: 0 találat", try again with spelling



      variations.



      If you get a result, then you'll notice that the name can appear anywhere



      in the record - Groom, Bride, Groom's father, mother, Bride's father and



      mother etc.



      Then there is a link to the actual digitised page: "Kapcsolat az



      anyakönyvhöz" where you can read the full entry, address, witnesses and any



      observations.



      Also, prior to about 1910, they also note the birth place for the groom



      (Volegeny) and the Bride (Menyassony)



      Column 1 = Register Number



      2 = Date



      3 = Groom's name + Address + Occupation and Birth date



      4 = Groom's father and mother's name (Address)



      5 = Bride's name + Address etc and Birthdate



      6 = Bride's father and mother's name



      7 = Witnesses + addresses



      8 = Record of Groom/Bride and Witnesses (these are not their signatures).



      9 = Observations.



      Kudos to the guy who programmed this. I wish that searching LDS records



      were just as simple.



      Peter M
