Does Anyone Have Experience Applying For Hungarian Ancestry Citizenship? #hungary

Martin Kaminer

I'm intrigued by the possibility but am finding it rather confusing.
Like many of my Jewish brethren my grandparents found themselves just
barely on the wrong side of the border after WWI and left for the US
soon thereafter. I was under the impression that they lost all rights
to claim Hungarian citizenship but now I'm told that's not necessarily
the case. It's possible that an ancestor lived within the borders of
present-day Hungary but if so he is rather remote.
Does anyone have experience with, knowledge of, connections to those
familiar with this process? I have found many contradictory citations
on Hungarian government websites but no authoritative source or expert
