We have exciting news for those who are researching the Transylvania region of Hungary, as well as those who are interested in preserving our heritage.
We have recently acquired a considerable number of register images from Bihar county, formerly in Hungary and presently in Romania, which contain around 12,000 to 15,000 records of births and marriages from this region. As you probably know, these records have been inaccessible until a few years ago and are not available on films from the Mormons.
These records primarily include Nagy Varad (Oradea), Er-Mihalyfalva (Valea lui mihai), Margitta (Marghita), and Elesd (Alesd), as well as those of several smaller towns and villages in the region.
We are seeking volunteers to help transcribe the records. No translating is necessary and no language skills other than English are required. Transcribing means to copy the names, dates and other pertinent information from the registers into a pre-formatted spreadsheet. "Jakob Klein" is pretty much the same whether in Hungarian, German or English.
Anyone who wants to help transcribe these records should contact me off list.
