Transylvania and Dracula

I am always in awe about written records.

I looked things over on wikipedia, and I really shouldn't have mentioned anything to anyone about that, but it is important to note the link that there is with the Saxons of Transylvania and Dracula.

There are, supposedly, written records of what Dracula did to the German merchants in Transylvania. According to some of my irate Transylvanian Saxon friends, there are no such written records and they had in fact never really heard about Dracula as we have in the West.

I wonder what the Hungarians thought of it all. I'm not sure, but it might be worth a search. Anyone know of a good site?

So, Vlad Tepes Dracul, did live in Transylvania, that much my friends admit to but nothing else, people don't talk about him...

Then what about werewolves? well.. that is another story.
