Hungarian Folk Traditions Revisited. Educational Curriculum Kit 5.
This booklet contains materials that highlight Hungarian traditions and customs transplanted to America by Hungarian immigrants. The research and educational activities are designed for practical application in locating, recording, preserving, and analyzing resources on Hungarian American history, particularly those in the Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) area. Sections in the booklet describe Joe Magarac (the legendary hero of the Pittsburgh steel industry), identify Hungarian surnames one may encounter in the Pittsburgh area or elsewhere, and relate selected Hungarian folk traditions. Research guidelines are outlined to facilitate an examination of Hungarian traditions through oral and community histories. Genealogical research techniques and resources are discussed, and educational activities and materials that should promote an understanding of the Hungarian immigrant experience are suggested.
