The Archives

The Archives of Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County makes it possible for groups and individuals to visit its premises. Groups, school classes and study circles are welcome by appointment and are given an introduction to the history, activities and permanent exhibitions by the professionals of the archives. Temporary exhibitions connected to particular anniversaries are also followed by great interest.  With teacher escort, history lessons and study circle sessions can be conducted in the institute which provides the archive’s resources to the particular topics.

The Archives

An annually recurring scientific event held in the Archives of Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County is the ’Archive Day’ where guest lecturers (historians, archivists) present talks on their research into the county and town history.

On the ’Archive Nights’ organised every quarter of the year, the public can get acquainted with the results of research carried out by local historians into town and family history.

The establishment of county archives was ordered by Queen Marie Theresa. The legal predecessor to our archives was set up in 1751, at the seat of the former Jászkun District in Jászberény. Since then, documentation related to the district had been collected there while the individual towns set up their own archives for the preservation of their documents.

Presently, the archives store 7,500 running metre of written documents. The storage of newly archived material is ensured – hopefully for the long term – in a new warehouse building completed in 2002.

The earliest genuine document kept in the archives is an estate donation deed from 1422, found among the documents of the Blaskovich family. Of the period preceding the Mohács disaster, only three charters have survived in the archives. The Turkish language charters preserved in the town archives of Jászberény and Mezőtúr can be considered as palaeographic rarities.

War and other destruction have done a lot of damage to documents, therefore the material of different towns and villages can be found with varying starting dates and completeness. An outstanding part of the material is formed by a collection of hand-drawn maps from the 18th century as well as a collection of design drawings on public buildings.

Mention must be made of the collection of seal plates, the foresting maps of the Forest Conservancy and the photo and picture postcard collection.

The Archives store the replicas of parish registers belonging to different churches by the individual villages which provide important sources for family research.

Due to the changes in administrative districts the Archives of Heves County also store documents related to Szolnok County and the Hungarian National Archives also keep documents related the former Jászkun region and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County.
