My name is Magda and even though my Mother's family immigrated from Hungary in 1895, I was named in honor of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution by my parents who thought it was a romantic honor to her heritage. I have been doing genealogical research since I was 17 years old. Beginning with my own families and friends, I have done records research for many years. I took a non-credit course with genealogist & lineage historian, Dorothy H. Dehn. She inspired me to work as a local records searcher. At the time, BYU offered a home study course where I learned how to do American records research.
For the past 25 years, I have been reading Hungarian records on microfilm and decided to focused on records in the Abauj-Torna region of Hungary and parts of Slovakia. I can also transcribe Hungarian census and church records as well as some American records for a reasonable rate. I organized a one-name study for a surname in my family that goes back to the 1600's in Slovakia. I am also in a registration process for a historic study of an extinct historic Hungarian village for the One Place Study guild.
As for this website, I like to share some details of Hungarian research in hope of giving the readers tips in doing their own Hungarian family genealogy.
This website is dedicated to my dear Mom.
