The National Archives of Hungary Komárom-Esztergom County Archives is the official archive for Komárom-Esztergom County in Hungary.

The archive is in the process of changing websites (older sites are here and here) and some of their material has not been transferred to the new site so some links will take you to records on their old website. If the URL doesn’t bring up a page with the option to translate and you need a Hungarian translation, try copying the URL/website address and pasting it into a new window and see if you get the translation option. Or, open and copy and paste text into the window and select “Hungarian” (or let it detect the language) and translate into your desired language.

  • Meeting Minutes of Free royal city of Esztergom Regesta, searchable database, 1701-1748 “The primary sources of location history are minutes of the leaders of the settlement. The council minutes of Esztergom, free-standing royal and then settled councils until the year 1952 (castle), became a county-based center, and later the provincial town’s council minutes to the beginning of the 1700s. Initially they were conducted in German, then in Latin. Extracts from the agenda items of the protocols (regrets) contain many useful information about the history of the city and the history of the inhabitants of Esztergom and the families.”

We would like to satisfy the interest of many people through the processing of ecclesiastical records found in our archives back to 1827.” Also “The Archives of the Municipality of Komárom-Esztergom County Local Authority contains the archives of the Palothy family of the Hont County, which contains documents from the 13th century until the end of the 18th century. Although the documents of the Palásthy family are mostly Hont, Nyitra and Bars County, due to their historical and familial significance, we consider it important to publish the contents of more than 200 medieval diplomas and the digitized image of their diplomas.”

  • Maps, coming soon, “Nearly 130 19th century colorful, manuscript manned maps kept in our archives are of great importance to local history scholars. They are beautifully depicting the borders of our place of residence, its ridges, its mountains, its streams. The house, the size and the location of the outskirts of the outskirts of their ancillary land registers can be found, such as the teaching habit, the majesty, the place of the parish, the extension of the village and the street structure. In addition to the most important data of the maps, the digital photo of them will be available soon.”
