Re: HUNGARIAN LETTER #hungary

Dear Ms Frederics and others,

First you can find the entire Hungarian Alphabet
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_alphabet> (capital letters only)
in the Wikipedia article about it. If you point your browser there you
can copy and paste any of the letters.

In addition to that (on a US keyboard) you can type any character that
does not have a specific key by holding down the ALT key and typing the
letter code on the *numeric* key pad.

Á = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
É = ALT + 144
Í = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
Ó = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
Ö = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
Ő = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
(In print this looks like an O with a double acute accent.
Electronically it looks as you see it here.)
Ú = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)
Ü = ALT + 154
Å° = (I don't know the code. I copied it >from Wikipedia. If anyone
figures it out please let me know.)

á = ALT + 160
é = ALT + 130
í = ALT + 161
ó = ALT + 162
ö = ALT + 148
o = (I don't know the code. If anyone figures it out please let me know.)
(This one looks like an o with a double acute accent.)
ú = ALT + 163
ü = ALT + 129
u = (I don't know the code. If anyone figures it out please let me know.)
(This one looks like an u with a double acute accent)

Siggers,

I found that an ancestor's records indicate his name was spelled LOWY

right-slanted quotation mark over the O. I can't seem to find that
diactritical mark or letter on my Hungarian keyboard. Is it the same as
a
"tilda", the wavy horizontal "s" used in Spanish? If not, can someone
kindly
tell me where it is on the keyboard?

Thank you.

there is one scheduled separately.

To my note as seen below, I received the following response >from the
Moderator.
According to Moderator's suggestion, I am sending this e-mail by copy to
support@jewishgen.org as well.
=================================
Moderator: It is JewishGen's practice to maintain the anonymity of
moderators.
Any subscriber with concerns or questions regarding JewishGen procedures
and guidelines may convey them to support@jewishgen.org.
===================================
Why? It lends itself to unresponsive or rude responses >from moderators.
Quality of moderator's work, help and responses increases if there is no
anonymity. It also gives the same added helpful information about the
moderator, that may be used in determining the value of a response. And why
should there be anonymity? I remember the time in the not too distant past,
when moderators did identify themselves. It created a more friendly
atmosphere

I would really like to see the accepting of responsibility by the
moderators for their responses through identifying them selves..

===================================

Anonymity:

I agree with the moderators, that the name and location of those writing
comments should always be at the end of the message.
It often helps to evaluate the recommendation and advice. Like, if you are

in Hungary, the value of your help may be different then if you are in So
America.
The sending e-mail address is not defining neither the name nor the
location. I live in the US, in California, but among the many e-mail
addresses I use, there are some in Hungary, .HU or in the Islands, like
.CC or in any other country.

As far as the comment regarding anonymous moderators, I do agree.
Moderators should also follow the same rules, and ALWAYS IDENTIFY
THEMSELVES by both their names and location.
In the way back past, it used to be that way.

Moderator: Complaints about unresponsive or rude responses >from moderators,
as well as comments and recommendations about JewishGen procedures,
guidelines, and policies can be sent to <support@jewishgen.org> JewishGen
has several reasons for maintaining the anonymity of list moderators.
One is to avoid personal attacks and abusive comments directed toward
moderators. While not common, this has happened. Another reason for this
policy is to ensure that moderators, all of whom are volunteers, will not be
subjected to scores of off-list e-mail messages. Please bear in mind that
all JewishGen list moderators are volunteers. Given the sizeable number of
subscribers to the Hungarian SIG list and several others, this would create
an additional burden for moderators making it even more difficult to recruit
volunteers for this position. We believe that the vast majority of
JewishGen list subscribers, who now number in the thousands, understand and
have no objections to this policy.
