This link below is about one of my heroines in the world of Hungarian genealogy. I was looking at the LDS film catalog for anything I could get my hands on about Hungarian church records and censuses one day when her name popped up as the compiler of these books about the Hungarian 1828 Land census. They are called Germans & Hungarian - 1828 The Hungarian Land Census.
Immediately, using the statistics of Hungarian Americans living in our community , I hassled the local Genealogy section of my library to buy them. I became truly inspired by this woman who started at the AGE OF 65 to transcribe the 1828 censuses to help other researchers. It was her work that inspired me to transcribe the 1869 Hungarian Census for certain villages in Abauj in the past 10 years as these were not indexed. Family Search has taken great strides in indexing baptism records in Hungary but they have not touched censuses as far as I know.
Her story convinced me that helping others look for the needle in the haystacks is very rewarding. I love the quote from this reporter's article about her
"At 82, Martha's motto is ...
"Don’t give up—do it now!!!"
