COMMENTARY ON AUSTRIA-2000 (courtesy Bob Unger and "Forbes Magazine")
(ED. Note: Bob Unger sent the BB Staff the following as a Christmas greeting.
I'd like to share some short excerpts of this good news from the "Heimat.")
"Its not often that a major magazine in the USA, "Forbes", publishes a
commentary on Austria. The following was obtained from <forbes.com> under
the subject of commentary for this 25 December 2000 issue. I thought that

as the late 1600's. Check the LDS microfilm Hungarian index.
If you visit Austria and plan to look for pre 1828 records, contact
Burgenland Editor Dr. Albert Schuch for requirements and instruction on how
to use the Eisenstadt Diocesan Archives. The BB has arranged for individual
permission to access these records (those which predate the village church
records) and we do not wish to jeopardize our welcome (an appointment is
