- Hello all!
Maybe some of you know Jan Hus was a Bohemian Catholic priest from Husinec, Czech Republic. He was burned at the stake in 1415 in Constance, Germany. Hus was considered a heretic because he was saying some of the same things about the Catholic Church that Martin Luther repeated some 100 years later. In 1999 the current pope apologized for the death of Hus.
My maiden name is Huss (Huss in USA/Hus in Czech). My father, Philip Peter Huss, was born in a village near Timisoara (German St. Peter)

Protestant: did Maria Theresa force Catholicism onto her citizens when the
Banat was brought into Hungary? I am interested in trying to trace my
Lutheran forebear in Hungary, and I would like some guidance about the
movements of the now marginalized Protestants in Hungary. Even though

I'm looking for the family or relatives FRANZ HOFFMANN *circa 1895 in Rudolfsgnad. It is quite certain he and his family eventually settled in Germany. I found his name in correspondence (1948) to Christof Dornstauder, (Canada) his cousin.
If anyone on the list is aware of this family please let me know.

unfortunately, my book doesn't say anything about

Actually, the data in there is fairly rough.
You could look upon it as the frozen state of 1944.
The author, Lorenz Baron, lists people by house and
name, and what they did in 1944: flee or stay.
No birthdate given.
As I have no birthday of KATHARINA STOBER HAGER

Those who came to the Banat from further north in Hungary did not get
concessions from the Government. They were not recruited by the authorities
to come to the Banat but came on their own volition. Likely some of them
again ended up again on estates run by Hungarian nobles---the Zichys, Kiss,
etc, or places run by ecclesial organizations----the bishop of Agram(Zagreb)
was a big land owner in the Banat. It must have occurred in much the same
way that settlers from the Batschka moved to Slavon

That's what I found it too: interesting. Who knows how many such interesting
people are still to be discovered among our people - which shows us once
more the importance of secondary sources when we want to find out more about
our families' past, once we have built our family tree, based on the church
books. Or to be led to the relevant churchbook by them.
Your pointing to what a Croatian name Alexander Magyar is makes a lot of
sense. This shows us once more how difficult genealogical

I have access to Hengl's 1768 - 1772 census records of Fejer and a Tornstauder is mentioned there. I know from other sources that the DORNSTAUDER/TORNSTAUDER family was in Gant in

- 25. Re: [BANAT-L] Travel France to Romania? 
- Sorin correctly points out to me that I had oversimiplified the status of
the Banat and that the Banat was not part of Hungary as I indicated below.
The Banat was a crownland, hence the personal property of the Habsburgs.
The Banat was transfered to Hungarian administration in 1778 as a payoff for
Hungarian help in the Seven Years War.
