The best of both worlds

Rick Crume wrote an excellent article, “Best Buys for Genealogists” (December 2001), but he should have followed through on his comment: “only a few genealogy CDs will run on a Mac.” He should have mentioned a program called Virtual PC. It comes with Windows 98 for the Mac so I have the best of both worlds and can run all of the PC genealogy CDs on my Mac.

Thanks for a newsy publication filled with helpful hints and suggestions.

Editor’s note: Thanks for the suggestion! For Rick’s picks of the best CDs for Macs and PCs, see page 44 in this issue.


More Hungarian resources

As a researcher and lecturer on family history, I was delighted to see your article “The Other Europe” (February 2002) covering Eastern European research. But I was disappointed that four of the five books you listed for Hungary are out of print. Your readers might be interested in these other publications that are more available:

Germans & Hungarians: 1828 Land Census by Martha R. Connor (Martha R. Connor)

Struggle and Hope: The Hungarian Canadian Experience by N.F. Dreisziger (McClelland 8c Steward)

Bridging Three Worlds: Hungarian-Jewish Americans by Robert Perlman (University of Massachusetts Press)

From Hungary to the United States (1880-1914) by Julianna Puskas (Akademiai Kiado)

Ties That Bind, Ties That Divide: 100 Years of Hungarian Experience in the United States by Julianna Puskas (Holmes & Meier)

A History of Hungary by Peter Sugar et al (Indiana University Press)

How and Where to Research Your Ethnic American Cultural Heritage: Hungarian Americans by Robert D. Reed (R & E Publishers)

The following audio tape is also a good resource for Hungarian researchers:

• “Austria-Hungary: Genealogical Research” by Duncan B. Gardiner (Missouri State Genealogical Association, <>)
