This census survey was carried out in the Hungarian Kingdom, which at the time included the now Burgenland province of Austria, today's Slovakia, the Zakarpattia part of today's Ukraine, the SE counties of the Kingdom of Hungary, commonly known as the Banat (Krassó-Szörény, Temes and Torontál, now part of Romania and Serbia), Bács-Bodrog County (Batschka, with its parts now mostly in Serbia), Croatia, Slavonia and Szerém (Srijem) and modern Hungary. This census did not cover the Transylvania part of Hungary (now in Romania).  See: About The Hungarian Property Tax 1828 Land Census & Film Numbers

Martha Connor's Translator's Note:

We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this translation for the following reasons:

1:  This copy was typed in Latin from an original, and there are several typographical error and misspellings.

2:  We do not know the origin of the Latin documents.  The Latin language differed from country to country: in Italy, Latin was different from that used in Germany and other places.
