    I recently learned about the death of Robert Neu, who served for many
    years as coordinator of the 1848 Hungarian Jewish Census records
    project, which was the first major component of the JewishGen's
    collection of Hungarian census records. Even though his health had been
    in decline for some time, Robert's enthusiasm and commitment to
    Hungarian Jewish family research never waned. Those of you who worked
    with him on the 1848 records will recognize that his coordination of
    this project was of extraordinary value and will remain a fitting
    testament to him. The index of the 1848 census records was one of the
    first major additions to JewishGen's Hungarian database and it has helped hundreds, if not thousands of researchers, trace their Hungarian Jewish families.
