The Archives of the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Buda holds records from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, primarily created to support the operation of the Eparchy of Buda, its central organs and institutions, as well as of the parishes within the territory of Hungary. The archival material is divided into basic record groups: (A) groups of records for the Eparchy of Buda, (B) groups of personal records and (C) collections, comprising the so-called items. Within the resultant units, archival material is for the most part classified according to year and – wherever available – file number.

Within the Archives of the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Buda, parish registers constitute a separate collection, representing the most common subject of research and other requests. Thanks to the efforts of Professor Aleksandar Kozić, a contributor of our Archives, the entire Parish Register Collection has been digitalised, and a database for searching basic parish register data has been created as well. We provide researchers and users with access to the digital database of our Archives under the terms of the Institution’s Rules and Regulations.
