Archives Mukachevo, Ukraine publishes catalog of its holdings

permanent link

What a feast! Ukrainian county archives now have lists of their holdings, published on the Archives of Ukraine site. Amongst the other units one can find the one in Mukachevo: List of fonds the State Archives of the Zakarpattya County. A word of warning: site is in Ukrainian. The list is available for download in the PDF format.

Basically, the archives in Mukachevo holds documents pertaining to the former Hungarian counties Ung, Bereg, Ugocsa and Maramaros. For some of them, holdings are only partial, as due to border changes various fonds went to Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, too. To help researchers archivists in these countries started to work together a few years ago. In fact, the above cited catalog is a fruit of joint work with the Museum in Satu Mare, Romania. On the Hungarian side the Archives of Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg County (in Nyiregyhaza) takes a major role.

I'll pick a few items from the catalog later - just for a tease.

FamilyTrackers.com publishes Romanian Jewish database

permanent link

A new set of data has been added to FamilyTracker.com's offers. This time their partner in Romania, Marcel Mindrescu added a collection of transcribed Jewish Cemetery records from Oradea, Romania (formerly Nagyvárad, Hungary). The press release also mentions that this is ment to be only the beginning, "the first of many planned from this part of the world".

I remember Gene Hall, FamilyTrackers, Inc. CEO sharing this news item with the members of Rootsweb's Hungary-L, too, and according to Google here and there it got posted on the Jewish Genealogy 2000 and Genealogy on the Internet lists, as well.

The former Google search brings up a new genealogy blog, the one by Gene Hall: FamilyTrackers blog. Interesting. One of the more recent blog items gives a basic overview of genie research in Romania: Genealogy in Romania - It's Tough but Possible.

I should sign up for the offered free account at FamilyTrackers to report what's inside. Does anybody have experiences with them? They made some nice peaks in May and August 2005 - according to Alexa. (But what are those unrelated domain names?)

permanent link

Flashback to the summer of 2005. In June I received an email from the editor of the renowned Family Tree Magazine saying that my Radix - Genealogy research in Hungary site is to be named as one of their 101 best undiscovered family history website. Wow! Pleased to be listed there, as one can expect. The selection came out in the August issue of Family Tree Magazine.
