Hungary SIG #Hungary Sending Funds to Hungary #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>

Hello all;

I need to send funds to a researcher that I have hired in Hungary. I am
wondering what means others have used to convey funds.

This is for an independent researcher, not one of the archives, since
archive policy may be different than what an individual may experience.

I looked into wiring the money, but the fees for doing so constitute 25% of
the researcher's fee, which seems excessive. He has suggested sending cash
via registered mail, but the people at the local post office have said they
believe that has a 50-50 chance of making it.

Have others used registered mail and has that been successful?

Has anyone used money orders? If so, which kind/brand of money order works
in Hungary?

My researcher seems reluctant/unwilling for me to send a US check or a money
order, but I'm not sure why.

Looking for suggestions.
