Latin-Hungarian dictionary and Vasarnapi Ujsag on OSZK servers

permanent link

The Hungarian Electronic Library, (MEK) added at least two more items that would interest genealogists and local history researchers.

The first one is Finaly's Latin-Hungarian dictionary. This dictionary is used the most by historians in Hungary dealing with medieval and modern latin. The electronic version of the 100 years old dictionary was published a few years ago on CD-ROM by Arcanum, and now it was donated to MEK. In MEK it has its own search interface.

Besides MEK, the Hungary's National Széchényi Library (OSZK) maintains another electronic collection, the Electronic Periodicals Archives, EPA. EPA functions both as a catalog for Hungarian periodicals available anywhere on the internet and also as a collection of digitized periodicals served by OSZK.

The latter service added years of Vasárnapi Újság to their offerings, namely 1854-1860 and 1861-1865. Vasarnapi Ujsag was a popular weekly magazine with rich illustrations. Years 1854-1860 were published by Arcanum back in 2002, and they are now avaible as html pages in EPA. I suspect they were donated by Arcanum to OSZK, just like Finaly's dictionary. Volumes of 1861-1865 were probably digitized by EPA, and its issues are available as PDF files.
