Mark Suss asked about finding his town in Hungary. Let me suggest
that we all keep in mind that wonderful JewishGen resource....
ShtetlSeeker.

The ShtetlSeeker does for towns what the JewishGen Family Finder
(JGFF) does for families....

http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/

go here, click on search by town name.... key in the name of your town,
click on the country it is in today...for this example... Hungary.
Once you see your town, note the longitude and latitude, click on "M"
and voila... you are connected to a MapQuest map of the area....
a map you can zoom into and out of... a map you can print and download...
what a wonderful resource!!!
