Hungary may refer to:
United States census records and arriving passenger lists often simply list the place of birth or origin as "Hungary" or "Austria" meaning the Kingdom of Hungary or Austria-Hungary. Careful research is needed to pinpoint the province and city/town.

Jewish Research resources on the FamilySearch Wiki are organized primarily by the present-day country, and not by the former designations. If possible, determine the city/town of origin and then search under its present-day country.
