According to Lisa Alzo's bio at the end of the article, she has "sampled Hungarian records while researching Slovak ancestors". Looks like she's made quite a diversion into Hungarian genealogy along the way. Her article gives a step by step approach to searching for family in Hungary which includes gaining a background understanding of its history and geography, using U.S. sources to find the place of origin in Hungary, and then moving to Hungarian church and civil records. The guide is full of good tips, some that I have learned the hard way by trial and error in my own Hungarian family history search.
