==Country Information==
 +
Hungary is a country in Central Europe bordered by [[Austria Genealogy|Austria]], [[Slovakia Genealogy|Slovakia]], [[Ukraine Genealogy|Ukraine]], [[Romania Genealogy|Romania]], [[Serbia Genealogy|Serbia]], [[Croatia Genealogy|Croatia]], and [[Slovenia Genealogy|Slovenia]]. From the eighteenth century to World War I it belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The official language is Hungarian.<ref>Wikipedia contributors, "Hungary," in ''Wikipedia: the Free Encyclopedia'', https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungary, accessed 23 March 2016.</ref>
 +
The lands of Hungary contributed great numbers of people to the waves of European Emigration from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s. These were not just Hungarians, but also Romanians, Germans, Jews, Slovaks, Ukrainians, Serbs, and Croats. Many settled in the United States, Canada, and Australia where, generations later, their descendants now begin the task of seeking their Hungarian heritage.

The Family History Library has an excellent collection of records from the present-day Hungary and Slovakia. Some of these rolls are available for immediate access at the Family History Library, including: Jewish records for all areas, Church records of Slovakia, and Church records of the city of Budapest. Many other microfilms can be obtained within 24 hours at the Family History Library. Others can be ordered from the Granite Mountain Vault within a few days. If you are visiting the library in Salt Lake City we recommend you order microfilms at least a month before you come. These records are written in Latin, Hungarian, and German. Some records of minority groups are written in Serbian, Slovak, Croatian, old Church Slavonic, Hebrew, and Romanian. The library has genealogical word lists in German, Latin, and Hungarian to help you in reading these records.
