Urbarialtabellen von 1768 (Land
& 1768 Urberi Tabellak
Many German families emigrated
to Hungary before the large- scale migrations to the
Donauschwaben regions and settled in the area of the "Schildegeberge"
(in Südwestliche ungarische Mittelgebirge (Hungarian
Highlands). This is the area composed of the hills
south of the Danube in the northern part of Hungary, known in
Hungarian as Gerecse and Vértes, and centered
around Tatabánya. Some of these settlers later moved on to the
Batschka and Banat. Settlers in this region can be found in
another Hungarian land census - the 1768 Urberi Tabellak.
This census can be searched quite quickly as the German-speaking
towns are quite well defined.
There are number of German towns in several counties. This
series of films can be found in the FHL under "Hungary -
Taxation, Urberi Tabellak". Some FHL film numbers are 1529753
(end), 1529754, 1529755.
