KARNER - Bánk/Bakonybánk, Hungary

Surnames: Karner/Mikolics/Nagy/Csonka
I have some additional information about my KARNERs since my previous post. My great grandmother was Veronika KARNER, born in Bakonybánk in 1872. She was married to György MIKOLICS.
Veronika's parents were Márton Ferenc KÁRNER b. 1837 Bakonybánk and Mária NAGY b. 1841.
Márton KÁRNER's parents were Márton KÁRNER and Ágnes CSONKA. According to information from National Archives of Hungary, Márton and Ágnes had 11 children (I have the names). All but the eldest child were born in Bánk/Bakonybánk. I had received information previously that one of the children Ignatius (Ignác), b. 1831 Bánk and d. Csatka 1906, was married to Anna SARUS.
I am interesting in hearing from anyone with information or connection to this line of my ancestry.

I would like to know about the National Archive info
you found, as I would like to find links to Csonka
(from your message). Is this on-line? I am planning
to visit Budapest in a month or so, and hope I can
do more homework before leaving.

Hi Fred
An archivist at the National Archives of Hungary has been assisting me and there has been a fee for this that covered the researcher's time, translation of records and postage. Mostly he has found records which aren't available through LDS, but there have been a few I could probably have found myself. I haven't been researching long and am only now getting the hang of accessing the microfilmed records! However, my understanding from looking at their website is that you can go into the archives an do your own research - and it's free. The link to their website is I don't think that you can search for family records online. Also, there's currently a message on their website that the research room in the main building will be closed from August until December so it may be worth checking this out.
I hope this helps a little. Maybe you'll find out something about my CSONKA whilst you're researching your own! Were they from around the same area?
Best wishes

Thanks for your help!

I have been looking online at www. in the
census of 1715 and have found a number of towns where
there were Csonka. At first it was strange manoeuvering,
but using the arrows, and then the index button at the top
left of the data screen, you can see the counties, then the
jaras, and then the villages for each area. There are so many
places with Csonka I am trying to figure out where the 'first
ones' came from. Again, thanks for the web site and the
heads up about the research room.
