== What is in This Collection? ==
 +
This collection consists of vital records from Hungary for the years 1895-1980. The original records are maintained by each individual civil registration office (anyakönyvi hivatal); copies are made and submitted to the County Archives. The copies in the County Archives were microfilmed and subsequently digitized into the images in this collection.
  
== Record Description  ==
+
Civil registration was instituted in Hungary on October 1, 1895 so that the government might have a record of vital events useful in compiling statistics about the people in Hungary. The records are bound volumes of pre-printed forms with event information recorded by hand. From 1895 through 1906, the forms are one page per event; beginning with 1907 each event occupies one row in a printed table, so there are multiple events recorded per page.
 +
Remember, there are restrictions as to which records are available for viewing. Only birth records 90 years old or older, marriage records 60 years old or older, and death records 30 years old or older have been made available by the Hungarian government.
  
This collection includes the years 1895-1980

What is in This Collection?

This collection consists of vital records from Hungary for the years 1895-1980. The original records are maintained by each individual civil registration office (anyakönyvi hivatal); copies are made and submitted to the County Archives. The copies in the County Archives were microfilmed and subsequently digitized into the images in this collection.

Civil registration was instituted in Hungary on October 1, 1895 so that the government might have a record of vital events useful in compiling statistics about the people in Hungary. The records are bound volumes of pre-printed forms with event information recorded by hand. From 1895 through 1906, the forms are one page per event; beginning with 1907 each event occupies one row in a printed table, so there are multiple events recorded per page. Remember, there are restrictions as to which records are available for viewing. Only birth records 90 years old or older, marriage records 60 years old or older, and death records 30 years old or older have been made available by the Hungarian government.

The registration has two formats:

  • The pre-1907 format can be located by clicking on the Hungary Civil Registration link below.
  • The post-1907 format is located on this page.

Both formats have valuable English translation guides to the records. An extract of these records has also been created and is being moved into the wiki article: Hungary Civil Registration, Birth and Marriage Extracts (Family Search Historical Records)
