I don't think NATO should get involved in all disputes all at the same
time. Don't you feel reassured just knowing that they are continually,
slowly but surely, pressing ahead. Hang in there!!

+ - Lost Photographs, Ł50 Reward (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)

In the summer of 1989 I spent 2 months Inter-railing round Europe.  I 
enjoyed Hungary so much that I spent 3 weeks camping there.  Unfortunately 
during my stay I somehow managed to lose 7 or 8 rolls of exposed 35mm 
photographic film containing over 200 photographs of my trip.  6 years 
later I am still upset by the loss!

The films were the only items to go missing on the whole of my trip and I 
am still unable to explain how they could have gone missing.  At the time 
I discovered the loss, I tried calling the campsites but had difficulty 
being understood.  I also filed a missing property report with the 
police in Budapest.

The films were tied together in a polythene carrier bag ready to be posted 
home for safety!  Surely if someone found the films they would not have 
thrown them away but kept them till the owner came to claim them, or 
handed them to the police or had some of them developed to try and 
discover the owner. I hope that somewhere my films are lying forgotten in 
a drawer.

If you are interested in trying to help me find the films and want more 
details of where I might have lost the films in Balatonalmadi, Tihany and 
Eger, E-Mail me directly at  .

There is a Ł50 reward for their recovery.  Many Thanks.

I can't comment on where this name may originate from, but I can tell
you Hungarians don't use the letter W. Even Wilma is spelled Vilma.

The low birth rate is not that big problem, actually it is tipical for
the developed countries. The poor, undeveloped, third-world count-
ries have high birth rates. The decrease in birth rate is proportional
to the countries' economical and cultural ascend. I think Romania
still has quite high birth rate measured on the  European standard
doesn't she ?

You did not manage to say anything new to us. We all know of these
numbers, and never denied them, becase we used to face our faults,
so you can not hurt us this way.
Somehow this tactics works beautifully on  Romanians, because
you hate to see your dark side(s), my  dear Jerkylls.


The "sumerian connection" was a little bit too strong, I agree.
+ - The Rules of the Game (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)


I posted a letter of Mr. Miklos Csapody, a Hungarian Member
of parliament to the Prime Minister ofHungary urging
the Prime Minister to take a stand against the 
ethnic cleansing of ethnic Hungarians in Vojvodina.
This posting was on the sreen of soc.culture.magyar for one
single day only and for three more days it could 
be read only if one recalled all the articles.
I tried to discover some rules in the manner you
 post and keep your articles on screen , but I don't 
seem to be able to see any consistency.
For examle, an articel titled "Auschwitz Explained" was 
on the main screen for much longer, and than our posting regarding
the Hungarian ethnic community in Vojvodina.
Who decides on this matters and what are the rules?
Thank you

It was a custom in Hungary to name one of the sons after his grandfather
thus I suspect that the "L' in the Virginia Registry stood for "Laszlo" The
"A" in the mother's name was almost certainly "Anna". My guess is that you
should try to trace "Rhedey Laszlo" and "Anna"

> I am curious to know if the family's choice of the

>Was Ladislaw popular in one region rather than another?

Laszlo might have been changed to "Ladislaw" for easier pronunciation (the
"sz" is a Hungarian double letter for "s" in English). My brother changed
his first name from "Ferenc" to "Frank" for the same reason.

>Does it reflect the flavoring or influence of an adjacent
>ethnic group?

Not necessarily but it is possible that their friends or neighbors in
Virginia were of a particular ethnic origin where "Ladislaw" was a common
name (as is "Laszlo" in Hungarian)



Good luck!
