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, at SUNY Buffalo. 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 20 years, I discovered Slovakian and Hungarian records on microfilm and decided to focus on reading microfilms and transcribe records in the Abauj-Torna & some Gomor regions of Hungary and Slovakia. I am happy to share my own family research with anyone from the same families from these villages. I also transcribe Hungarian census records, some church records from microfilm and research American records for a reasonable rate. I do maintain an 1869 index that I developed for many villages in Abauj~Torna. I also maintain a one-name study for the surname STERMENSZKY (contact : stermenszky at one -name dot org for any information on that surname or through the contact link on the home page of this site).
As for this website, I occasionally upload 1869 census transcriptions but mostly write some details of Hungarian research in hope of giving readers tips on doing their own Hungarian family research.
