    1869 Hungarian Census Málcza, 58/II

This project seeks to assemble the information available from primary and secondary sources to reconstruct the Jewish community of Malčice, Slovakia, formerly Málca and Málcza, Zemplén megye, Hungary.

Malčice is a village and municipality in Michalovce District in the Kosice Region of eastern Slovakia. Historical historical records first mention the village was first mentioned in 1274 (

The current estimated population stands at 1,400. The Jewish community maintained its vital records in Michalovce. The Jewish vital records for Michalovce for 1841-1876 survive in the Hungarian Archive in Sátoraljaújhely (indexed on JewishGen). A partial reconstruction of the families from 1877-1895 is possible through records that survive from elsewhere in Hungary and Slovakia, due to family migrations.

Jewish population estimates follow:

  • c.1833: 69 (J. C. von Thiele, Das Königreich Ungarn: Ein topograph.-hist.-statistisches Rundgemälde, d. Ganze dieses Landes in mehr denn 12,400 Artikeln umfassend, Volume 3. Theile, 1833)
  • 1869: 128 (count of Jews in extant 1869 census records)
  • 1877: 127 (Census)

The Jewish cemetery near the village is overgrown and has three surviving gravestones visible, with only the one of Abraham Lefkovits legible as of 2006.

Name (Birth Year), House Number/Family

Muster rolls from the Nagy-Mihály military district of Hungary, now Michalovce, Czechoslovakia. 1873-1888, births of 1851-1868.

Nagy-Mihály. Hadkiegészítő Parancsnokság, Katonai nyilvántartási jegyzék, 1873-1888. Family History Library films 629842, 629843, and 629844. This source has some muster records for males born in 1851-1868, some of whom do not appear in the 1869 Census. The birth years for those in the 1869 census in some cases vary slightly from the birth dates in the census records.

Families that either do not connect to the 1869 Census or do not have evidence in surviving vital records

Some families that appear in the vital records do not appear to connect to the 1869 Census. Others are later and appear in Holocaust sources, immigration records and other sources, but to not link to the vital records or the 1869 Census. [This is a work in progress. Many others also have profiles associated with this project.]


Yad Vashem has 93 records of Holocaust victims. This project will also attempt to document their families and connect them to the existing vital records where possible. Some of them actually appear to be people from Melčice-Lieskové (Melcice), Malcov, Slovakia or another Malčice in Czechia, rather than Malčice, Slovakia.
