Being a part of Austria-Hungary up to 1918 it might be of importance to the Hungarian researcher to keep an eye on Austrian research. Not to mention Burgenland, the federal state created from former Hungarian counties.

Burgenland Bunch featured in RootsWeb Review

permanent link

I usually don't read the RootsWeb Review from cover to cover (not much Hungarian stuff there), still, while skimming through the current issue I could spot the short intro of the Burgenland Bunch. Hats off to Gerry Berghold and his fellow enthusiasts for providing a great resource for family history researchers in that province!

WorldVitalRecords strives to live up to their vision to be a premier place for international genealogical research. Following their first set of 11 international genealogy search collections, on 9 Feb 30 more have been added. This new set includes interfaces for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, and Ukraine research.

This research tool is done by using Google's Co-Op service, where one can filter Google to return results only from a select list of sites. Well, folks over there miss at least to sites that provide some subtle Hungarian family history information: RadixIndex and RadixForum.

Free online collection of old newspapers from Austria

permanent link

The Austrian National Library is hard at work. They are putting old newspapers to the web: ANNO (AustriaN Newspapers Online). In February 2004 the number of available pages reached 1 million. One interesting title for Hungarian research is the Pester Lloyd. This was a German language newspaper published in Budapest. I haven't read into it deeply, maybe there are obits published in the paper.
