Zemplen County Census

Vivian Kahn

The Family History Library has the 1869 Census of Zemplen County, Hungary, on 171 microfilm reels.

Full title is Nepszamlalas, 1869.

Record can be found under Hungary, Zempen-Census; Slovaka-Census; Hungary-Census; and Czechoslovakia-Census. Film numbers are 0720000-0720021, 0722666-0722771 and 0719776-0719819.

The 10-page list of contents is itself a useful aid because it lists the original Hungarian, modern Hungarian, and Slovak place names.

Users should be aware that some of the place names are not the current Slovak names. For example, the current Slovak name of my father's birthplace (Szeckerestur, Hungary) is given as Kerestur. In fact, the present name, according to my Freytag & Berndt road map, is Zemplinska Teplica.
