For example when you want to compile a family tree or to better understand the history of your family. The dictionary is focused on historical terms in latin, old version of hungarian, german and historical slovak (19th century and older).

Sometimes you don´t know how to write correctly searched Latin, German or Hungarian word. That happens especially when you can read only a part of the word in the old register or list. Advanced searching with help of alternate, so-called wild cards, can be helpful then. Read more about how the project Genedict enables genealogists with advanced search. see more
