Hungarian Cursive Characters

You are here: Guides / The Cursive Database

Reading old cursive can sometimes be hard, so we decided to collect the most common characters found on documents from different centuries. Handwriting, of course, can have its own errors, and in some cases, only a native speaker can make a distinction between two similar characters (such as a lowercase U and N). Nevertheless, reading old cursive is a necessary skill for every genealogist, amateur or professional, and thus our database of cursive characters aims to satisfy everyone. Since this is an enormous task, we ask for your patience while we roll out new updates.


Due to the high quality of the images in each database, loading times (affected by the internet connection and the hardware) may be slower on some computers. We are constantly working on optimizing the website to improve performance.
