Folks should be aware that the webinar - WIKI FOR GENEALOGISTS - is a great introduction to the way of the Wiki world in genealogy. It really answers many questions about how versatile wiki can be for genealogists. The ideas are endless and so well presented by the wiki genealogist, Thomas MacEntee.His webinars are featured, sometimes for free, at : http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/Webinars.asp or the preview of the wiki one is at : http://www.familytreewebinars.com/download.php?webinar_id=92.
On the general subject of Hungary, Wikipedia is one resource for finding variations of the spellings of the villages /towns/cities for your family's history. For starters, one can search village information and history at http://www.wikipedia.com.
- The wikipedia links specific for Hungary are listed here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian
- There is also a section on the geographic of Hungary at : http://www.geonames.org/719819/hungary.html
- For those who like to travel, this one reminds me of the old Lonely Planet books : http://www.travellerspoint.com/

For Hungarian research, nothing tops the Wiki at Family Search - https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Hungary
There is the famous WikiMapia site which interfaces with google maps somehow . It boggles my mind how it's done . I linked an example :
Here for the city of Debrecen :
A great place to collaborate and build a family tree from your Hungarian genealogy, wiki style, is at http://www.wikitree.com
Finally, last but not least , Hungarian cuisine can be savored at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_cuisine
I only touched the subject of Wiki lightly. Thomas MacEntee's video really shows the power and breadth of the Wiki medium in genealogy.
