Hungarianroots is the main genealogy research company for people with Hungarian and Hungarian Jewish roots. We started our enterprise back in 2004 in order to help people search for and find their Hungarian Jewish roots in the region once called Greater Hungary. People of Hungarian Jewish ancestry aiming to get Hungarian citizenship can also turn to us if they need a Hungarian birth certificate for the application. Besides all this we organize guided tours for people interested in Hungarian and Eastern-European history, Jewish culture, architecture.
Hungarian and Hungarian Jewish Genealogy. The Greek word 'Genealogy' stands for 'the study and tracing of family lineages and history', but there is a lot more attached to it: the smell of freshly baked bread, playing on the fields with your mates, pale memories of the small villages where you or your parents grew up, the smell of the church or the shul, the flavor of the sabbath cholent, memories of your grandparents telling you about their Hungarian roots: how and where they had lived. Births, weddings, funerals. And of course, a lot of old, yellowish photographs with some unreadable handwriting at the back...
What we offer you goes far beyond a simple a Hungarian Jewish family research, it could be a lot more! As you desire, we can make it a real adventure tour: we visit the places with you that your ancestors had lived, we visit the old family house, and go to the cemetery to find the tombs and we help you translate any epitaph in Hungarian, Hebrew, Yiddish, Russian or German.
