Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1840 to 1990.

Printed funeral notices gathered by the National Library of Hungary. About 30% pertain to Budapest and the rest to other places in Hungary. Includes approximately 459,000 individual cards printed in a variety of styles sometimes on colored paper and generally with a black border. A small percentage are handwritten on printed forms. The cards are arranged alphabetically by family name and then by given name.

Notices were printed and distributed to family members and friends. Over time they were either collected by someone and donated to the National Szechenyi Library in Budapest or were collected by the Library itself.

Notices represent only a fraction of Hungarians who died during the inclusive years, primarily those from well-to-do middle-class families and lesser nobility. Some of these notices are from Budapest (certainly less than half, possibly about 30%) others are from other parts of Hungary and from areas no longer in Hungary (Slovakia, Croatia, Romania). There are approximately 459,000 people represented in these cards. 

For an alphabetical list of records currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.

Notices were used to notify family and friends of a death and served also as an invitation to attend the funeral sermon.

Generally these were composed from information provided by close family members and the information is fairly reliable.

⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "Surname letter" category
⇒Select the "Beginning name" category which takes you to the images

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

Notices vary somewhat in the information provided. At a minimum use notices to obtain the name of the deceased, the date and time of death. Sometimes you will learn the age of the deceased, permitting you to approximate the date of birth. Most notices include the names of several surviving family members such as spouses, siblings, and children. Use these details to extend research in those directions. If major accomplishments of the deceased are included, you can use this information to find occupational or school records. Most are written in Hungarian; some are in German; a few are in French.
