About the 1869 census

                                  The 1869 Hungarian census was a population census conducted by the Kingdom of Hungary and stored in the Hungarian National Archives. It was also the first census done after feudalism ended and the peasants were emancipated. For research purposes, it provides a great framework to finding other records in doing family history in Hungary. This website was basically inspired by the transcriptions  I did of many villages in the 1869 Hungarian census.
