 Introduction
One of the main goals of the Association is to collect family research data from various sources and integrate them into an easy-to-handle unified database. When creating the database, special attention will be paid on the rights of individuals to privacy as well as on the protection of personal data. In keeping with the stipulations of current Hungarian legislation we shall not publish data within the 30, 75 and 100-year time limits with regard to death, marriage or birth data, respectively.

The larger the database the more useful it may prove for researchers. This is why we invite those interested to join and contribute their family data. We do hope that this ever increasing database will be not only a useful instrument to make family research a simple and entertaining exercise, but also enable participants to discover new family relations. In addition, the online accessibility will make it possible for everybody, including the disabled or those who are living abroad or in remote areas, to get involved in family research.

A detailed description about the general features of local heritage books can be found, (so far, only in Hungarian), on this page: /society/csaladkonyv.php

The website is divided into three sections.

  1. On the left side you can find the Menu with various Search Options, the Co-operation Options and the Language Options. The “Good to know...” item gives pratical guidance on how data can be added to the database.
  2. The middle section is used for research. The database offers a variety of search options.
    - Listing Alphabetical. On the new page you will see a listing of settlements in alphabetical order. Clicking on any item in the list will lead you to detailed information about that particular location. Further search options are available using the menu on the left sidebar.
    List of surnames – the listing is in alphabetical order. Clicking on any item in the list brings you to a list of persons in that particular family. Clicking on a name will bring up the person’s detailed data page. Here, clicking on highlighted names, you can also step “forward” or “backward” between generations.
