Here is the e-mail address to the Hungarian military archive. You need to have good identifying information before you start (name, date of birth, and parents’ names); they do not do general, open-ended type searches. You can write them in English: hadtortenelmi.leveltar@mail.militaria.huHungarian Culture online.

I have found many engagements, marriages and some births by using the following wildcards + the name of the person:
Eljeg*
Házas*
Szül*
Sometimes you have to be very creative in finding the right person, especially when they have a common name you can also add the town. The asterisks are necessary to cover all Hungarian spelling variations. So if you’re looking for the engagement of Mihály Kovács from Pécs you type this in the search field:
Eljeg* “Kovács Mihály” Pécs*
And then hopefully something shows up.

Also,  I have been using http://www.arcanum.hu/en/ and have found many news articles, business ads, addresses etc.

This gives you the Budapest Archives and the National Archives.

I use http://www.oroklet.hu/ for cemetery searches
