Thanks Gabrielle, for sharing this information.
I'm pretty sure the information would be the same data available on FamilySearch.org
under the index of the Hungary Catholic Church Records 1636 - 1895, which is free, but if
they are providing the actual images of the church registers, this would be a plus (I
don't think so...).
Researchers should also be aware that the registers are in Latin, so the records you are
seeking will likely be a different spelling variant -- example -- my grandfather's
name, Joseph was Jozsef in Hungarian, but the Latin variant is Josephus, and that is how
he is indexed.
I just wanted anyone who is ready to pay for these records to know they are most likely
available for free.
Best to all,

Subject: [DVHH] Batschka Researchers - Online Archive of Diocese Kalocsa - How to use it
I'm not sure if everybody knows. The diocese Kalocsa is putting all their church books
online - most of them are available already. To use the online archive you have to
register and pay a relatively small fee. Registration is easy.
You can reach the research section of the archive of the diocese Kalocsa here:
Click on „Usage“
- here you get a downloadable Excel file with all the available church books that you can
see online. The names of villages are in Hungarian, though.
Or you click on
"Registration": Here you can
fill in the online registration form (in Hungarian/German/English).
After you have sent the online form and the payment has arrived in Hungary they will send
you a mail, telling you that you are now a registered user. If you are a Batschka
researcher the archive is shere paradise. I don' know where to look first.
