Budapest City Archives launches online databases

permanent link

Thanks to the post on the Csaladtortenet mailing list I read that the Social History Online Database of the Budapest City Archives has been finally opened. (An old post about it in the blog.)

The database contains metadata about the documents in the holdings of the archives, covering the following subject areas:
- Probate cases (provenience: court records, public notaries' records), 1915-1955, full coverage.
- Various records of public notaries, 1875-1950. As of now, the period of 1875-1900 is covered the most in the database.
- Cases at various courthouses in Budapest, 1872-1895. The Court of Budapest is fully processed.
- Last wills and testaments, 1896-1950, fully processed, the period of 1699-1873 is under processing.
- Orphans' courts' records, first records planned to be released in 2006.

Wow! That's a real treasure for the genealogist digging around Budapest.

Enter a surname in the simple search form and you there you go (mind the Hungarian accented letters, though). Or, click on "Részletes keresés" for the detailed search form.
