Former Transylvania Region



Transylvania was part of the Hungarian half of the Empire up to 1918; after that it had been ceded to Romania; the records are deposited in the various County archives; replies to queries have been very unreliable but now, since travel to Romania is possible, this can be a resourceful alternative. The "Banat", again an integral part of the Hungarian half of the Empire until 1918, was afterwards divided between Hungary, Serbia & Romania; the Hungarian part has been microfilmed by LDS; the documentation reposing in the Romanian part can be viewed in the archives of Temesvar, the material in Serbia in Beograd (Belgrade); again under the present political climate this latter option may be a bit daunting. The Roman Catholic Church Entries of Lombardy and Venetia, before 1860/66 parts of the Austrian Empire, have only partially been microfilmed and can be examined in the archives of Milano and Venice as well as some of the original records; otherwise the church-books still reposit in their individual parishes - it is therefore best to ascertain exactly where a certain record can be found, also to learn about opening hours.
