In a previous recent post I found a possible ancestor or at least an
ancestral branch. He was Georgius Mraffko - otherwise Mraffkó György
There was enough information in his children's birth records to show that
he was of civic importance. - eg a lawyer and perhaps later a Lord in
Bratislava and afterwards in Budapest.
So I started looking and found mention of him at AdatbázisokOnline.
This only a catalogue entry, and gives me good hope of finding more about
When you click through and read the notes in full, it states in part that
the information it could provide includes *(with reference to the nobility)

That's very detailed and could be a great resource. Sounds interesting and
it will be on my shopping list!
AdatbázisokOnline is a fast growing resource. About 6 months ago, they had
only digitized the 1715 and 1720 searchable tax records. Now, it contains
many collections and is easily reachable (Mon-Fridays, some weekends except
public holidays) at:
Hungarian only. The site isn't too user friendly and would suit moderately
experienced database researchers.
Playing around with it, I also found a 1601 resource (product) census of
many villages and towns of principally Hapsberg controlled areas. You do
have to know the very early names of your town for the search to work
though. I had to use a neighbouring village name that didn't change too
much to bring my village name up.
