A variety of different charts and forms can often
provide clues to ancestral villages of origin. Once you have
learned the name of a town or place, the Hungarian Village Finder, Atlas, and
Gazeteer for the Kingdom of Hungary (HVF) can help you find it
maps, provide information for locating vital records such as birth
(Christenings), marriage, and deaths and tell you what country it is
now located in, its current name, and so much more!
|Based on the 1877
Hungarian Gazetteer "Magyarorszag Helysegnevtara" by Janos Dvorzsak, the
HUNGARIAN VILLAGE FINDER,
ATLAS, and GAZETTER for the KINGDOM of HUNGARY CD-ROM—
Is a comprehensive dictionary, encyclopedia, atlas, gazetteer, and
directory with indexes of placenames for villages, settlements, towns,
communities, and cities in the former Kingdom of Hungary (pre 1918),
including those now located in Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Poland,
Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, and Serbia / Yugoslavia.
Functions as a village finder, place locator, and town seeker when
conducting a place name search.
Uses official, native, conventional, variant, and current names to make
finding a place of interest a more likely probability.
Allows for partial name or word searching when available records are
difficult to read and only a few letters are legible.
Has reference maps for
individual countries, megyes / varmegyes (counties), AND for every járás
(district) located within each county. These so-called district
maps show the location of the
villages that were once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire!
Also includes indexed county / megye directories listing local churches
and nearby parishes (to help locate ancestor birth, marriage, and death
records), information on population and ethnicity of major inhabitants,
current country locations with names, as well as other relative
information, research aids, hints, and “Links” to online/Internet
No other resource
gives you so much in one place.
