|Cover page from Beregszász census|
This is the census of Czechoslovakia, the country that Carpathian Ruthenia was part of after October 1918, under the official name Podkarpatska Rus. The census was conducted between November 1, 1920 and March 31, 1921.
The collection has been preserved almost completely, making it a valuable source for genealogy research in this region. The original documents are held by the Berehove branch of the State Archive of Transcarpathia Region in Ukraine. I can attest that this archive was rather difficult to access. So, the ability to work with the census from the comfort of your own home is very welcome.
The census questionnaire contains information about the town/village, address and names of the residents, including their date and place of birth, native language, religion, occupation, etc. The documents are in Hungarian and Czech.
Digitizing of the records was done in collaboration between the Ukrainian archive and Budapest City Archive of Hungary, and the resource is published on the Hungaricana website.
In a recent post I mentioned another resource, where part of this census has been published. But I now recommend the Hungaricana one over it, because it is more complete and user-friendly.
