It's actually a sub-project that will eventually become a Project if people let us know. It has a leader (Me smiley). We just need people to say they are interested.

Thank you.

Using the sticker on my dad led to a "843 Missing template (spelling)" error on my Suggestions list. The green question mark on the error suggests that someone needs to add something to the "Database Errors Definition Templates" page/"profile".

Maggie, I'm too overextended right now to think of joining any projects, but in answer to your question - I have Hungarian roots.  Both of my maternal grandparents emigrated from Hungary to the United States.

Totally understand, dear Gaile smiley

If I color in a fan chart of my ancestors according to the country they were born in, it's completely monochrome (except at the edges where it's blank because I have declined to make any assumptions): they were all born in the Kingdom of Hungary or its successor states. Hungarian also happens to be my first language, so definitely count me in for this project!

Thanks, J. You have been a wonderful help on G2G helping people with questions for the project smiley

Yes I have a large network of relatives in Hungary, mostly in Vemend, Hungary. My grandparents immigrated to Canada in 1930/31.

Hi! My paternal grandfather was Hungarian. My husband has Hungarian ancestry, too. I have some experience researching Hungarian vital records through the Family History Library.  My time is somewhat limited, but I would like to expand my family's Hungarian profiles on Wikitree.  I'm glad to see this project happening!

Jaki, on a whim I looked up your grandfather in Hungarian Wikipedia (https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erd%C5%91s_Rich%C3%A1rd), which has a link to (and basically quotes verbatim from) his entry in the Hungarian Jewish Lexicon (http://mek.oszk.hu/04000/04093/html/0245.html):

Erdös Richard, opera singer, born in Budapest 1881, died in the same place June 10, 1912. He grew up in the Jewish orphanage and already sang in the synagogue choir as a child. From there he got into the Opera's choir, and then having finished his studies at the Music Academy and on a state scholarship in Munich, he became a private singer with the Hungarian Royal Opera at the age of 25, as the direct successor of David Ney. However, in 1911 he contracted with the Frankfurt opera. In the spring of 1912 he joined the Bayreuth singers as a guest performer in the People's Opera's Wagner Ring cycle, to great acclaim, but due to severe heart trouble he fell ill during a performance and died a few days later. Chief roles: Sarastro, Brogni, Mephisto, Hunding, Hagen, Daland, Marke, Pogner, and head priest (Aida). At high holidays he sang in the Dohány street synagogue.

Two sets of my great-grandparents were from Austria-Hungary (according to responses they put on census and immigration records). I would be interested in this project!

My Grandmother was born in Hungary, which is now the town of Kleinmurbisch, Gussing, Austria. I have way too much on my plate right now to participate. Maybe in the near future.

Hi, Maggie!

Would you please add me to this project?  I have done a lot of research with Hungarian records in the past, besides having Hungarian roots.  My husband has Hungarian roots, too, and we're planning a trip to his ancestors' home town some time next year.

Thanks!

I thought I might join in with your project.  I have an ancestral branch which looks as though it may have originated in western Hungary and become Austrian when the border was re-drawn.

Richard, that's wonderful. Thank you for joining smiley

My husband's mother escaped Hungary in the 1950's after the Hungarian Revolution. I'm struggling to find any information.  We have limited documentation in Hungarian, which my husband never learned.  His dad escaped Russian Occupied Berlin and that is another story.

The Arolsen Archives (https://collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/search/) has some passenger lists from 1956-57; I found my dad and my stepmother-in-law's cousin. Ancestry also has some of the same material and indexes.

I would like to join in on the Hungary Project as I do have Hungarian Roots/Ancestors.

I've read and I do believe that i've (hopefully) met the prerequisites for joining the team.

Thank you very much! :-)
