RáczKozár, now known as Egyházaskozár, had a population of 5 Serbian families when census records were taken in 1696.  In the eighteenth century Germans, some from Hessen and others from Württemberg, began arriving to augment the farming community.  Between 1752 and 1768, the German population steadily increased and within a generation the community became the spiritual center for German Lutherans from several thriving villages – Bikal, Csikostöttös, Gerényes, Kapos Szekcsö (Szekcsö), Ligeth, Nagyág (Ág), Szabadi, Tarros, Tékes, Tófü,  – in the area.

The vital records for RáczKozár, as recorded by the evangelical church in the village, cover the years 1783 to 1895.  This information is available on three (3) microfilms – # 631007, # 631008, # 631009 – through the Family History Library (FHL) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The following links constitute an index of essential names, dates and locations as transcribed from the original microfilms.  Where no place name is given in the record, the assumption is that either no place name was mentioned or that the place name was RáczKozár.  As the original phonetic spellings have been retained, it is advisable to consult the Surnames file to see the multiple phonetic renderings that exist in the record of the family name that you are researching.  The church records include, principally, the vital records for the Lutheran congregation of RáczKozár.  The death records include not only those of the village, but also those from
