New Episodes of Interest to Jewish Genealogists
Andras Koltai, a native Hungarian of Jewish descent, has been researching Hungarian Jewish genealogy since 2002. Koltai, a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and a featured researcher on British and Australian versions of Who Do You Think You Are?, discusses Jewish Hungarian history, including adoption of surnames in Hungary and available records. His website is called Hungarian Jewish Roots.
In my previous review of Jane's program I noted spotty tech work. In the last few months the program has cleaned up its recording substantially. Unfortunately, the connection from Hungary in this episode fades in and out. I listened to it on my iPod while walking the dog. Considering the sound issue, I would advise listening either in front of one's computer or while sitting with one's iPod so the sound may be adjusted while listening.
