Heureka, Ukraina!

permanent link

I'm preparing stuff to be added to the previously announced RadixHub. During the boring task of going through the holdings of Family History Library Catalog for modern and former Hungary I spotted quite something.

Apparently LDS is working on getting records from the Ukraine, and along with the vast eastern territories of the country sets of films relating to Zakarpattia (Kárpátalja) are on their newly acquired list, too. Considering the assigned record numbers for these items (1411329-32) and notes on them ("This is a preliminary description provided to allow immediate microfilm access.") these must be really fresh! Also, it must be due to the haste to add them to the FHL catalog that their "Authors" were not correctly entered. The listed author is the Greek Catholic Diocese in Uzhhorod, while the true provenance must has been the State Archives in Uzhhorod.

OK, now to the beef.

1) Family History Library cat. no. 1411329: Metrical books of the Mukacheve (Uzhhorod) Greek Catholic Diocese, 1826-1938, 70 microfilm rolls. Film notes with details.

This set contains church BMD registers, marriage licenses and records (people of mixed faiths), and church records of emigrants from the GC Diocese. These must not be the originals, but the original, contemporary copies. Churches in Hungary (in the Habsburg Monarchy) were requested to keep a copy of their metrical books and to send the copy sheets to either the county or to the diocese archives annually.

2) Family History Library cat. no. 1411330: Emigration records, 1901-1939, 25 microfilm rolls. Film notes with details.

Protocols and documents relating to the issue of passports to North America.

3) Family History Libary cat no. 1411331: Military records, 1853-1937, 12 microfilm rolls. Film notes with details.

Draft records, mainly from the Soviet era. 19th century docs are fragmentary.

4) Family History Libary cat no. 1411332: Various public records, 1954-1938, 8 microfilm rolls. Film notes with details.

This material includes various list of homeowners, citizens, voters, students.

Note that the detailed film notes are in the Cyrillic Ukrainian script.

RadixHub taking shape

permanent link

Looks like RadixHub is getting ripe for a launch. In fact, this is first time visitors to this site of mine will find some use of it.

The purpose of RadixHub is twofold. First, it helps in finding places in former Hungary, then it provides links leading to pages rich in genealogy and family history information that relate to the researched places.

Currently available features are only a fraction of what is planned. I expect the site to become fully functional these coming weeks. The first installments of a map search facility for the 1913 gazetteer of Hungary (using Google Maps for a frontend) and the county lists from the 1877 gazetteer are available, just like the first of the sources upped, the SOCEC directory of Romania from the 1920s.
