Got this from Alex Leeb in Calgary. I think what Alex says I would
take to the bank. I know of no one that is more aware of things in
that area of Europe than Alex.
OK Chops, ...I found the pictures.
"Schubkegel" - is the last name of the mason who laid the tomb stone.
After most of the German people left to Germany after 1950. They would ask
somebody in the village to
put a tomb stone on their grave. They people in Germany would pay him.
So the person who laid the tomb stone on t

- Hello Banaters,
I am wondering what a particular column on the pages of birth records
in the Taufindex 1858-1944-FHL INTL film  Hungary, Temes,
Liebling-church records mean. One column has BD v/S or BD 5/L. I
realize the v or 5 means 5 because some of the other pages list BD
III/S and the III must mean 3. Below this title in the column numbers
are listed with a dash. For example: 55-139. Does anyone have any idea
what this means?

Johann Porte has, as I understand it, organized the available KB data for
Pardan and the closely related Modosch into Familienbuch format and it is
presently in manuscript form. Since Porte no longer feels he can pursue
this work, these manuscripts have been turned over to Philipp Lung and he is
arranging for someone else to take over this work in order to make them
available for publication. This will involve adding additional information
which has become available in the intervening years as wel

Is there a website for ships that left the port of Bremen or Hamburg in
the late 1920's and early 1930's? I have the dates and names of ships
that my Banat relatives arrived in Halifax on, and am interested in
the dates that the ships left. I remember seeing once that the voyage
took about a week or 10 days.
You could try the site: http://linktoyourroots.hamburg.de/
They have access to their database up to 1905 and it will be continuing to grow up to 1934.

- 10. Re: [BANAT-L] Port of Bremen or Hamburg 
It was generally regarded that the Bremen records were lost during the war.
It turns out that the Russians found them in a salt mine at the end of the
war and took them to Russia without telling anyone. When the wall came down
there was an agreement between Germany and Russia to return national
cultural treasures back to the previous owners so the post WW I Bremen
records came back to Germany and they were turned over to the Bremen
genealogical society which is slowly abstrcting them and making them

J. F. as natural father
An illegitimate child was back than the same way alleviate as it is today. Being alleviate 90 years ago was not such a stigma though, as 150 years ago. At that time an alleviate child could not own property, could not learn a trade, etc. It was mainly to try to prevent children being born with no father to help raise it around.
Since your parents did not talk about the alleviate status of them or their

If you want to have a copy it might be wise to contact Jaeger now and tell
him that you would like to order a copy, since these books are often
pulished in limited editions and quickly go out of print.

- 13. Donauschwaben....... 
- Dear Listers,
The discussion of what we are called and what we should be called, perhaps,
raises the question, in view of us and our ancestors having lost everything:
"Does it really matter?"
As far as I am concerned, the name we were given or should have been given,
for that matter, does not change anything! Banat provided me with an
excellent background and education, as I am sure it has done for all of us,
and I am very grateful for that. When I speak with someone from Germany,

I have previously researched VAULT films at the FHL. This means you must

for them to arrive and they have been readily available for research
when I arrive.

- Thank you both, Dave and Nick;
For refreshing our history knowledge.
I would like to elaborate on a small point brought up by Nick.
It is a matter of convenience on the LIST to refer to the Banat as a part of
Hungary but it all depends on the time period. As Nick indicates between
1718 and 1778 the Banat was a Crownland of the Habsburgs(like
Siebenburegern) and was not part of Hungary----much to the annoyance of the
Magyars. Then as a payoff for Hungarian help in the Wars of Austrian

This is the information that Gert Liess, a descendant of the Transylvania Saxons (Siebenbuerger Sachsen), gave to me about their history. I've translated this from German for your convenience.
"The Siebenbuerger Sachsen settled 850 years ago in the area between east, south, and Westkarpaten. They originally came from the area that is now Luxembourg, south Belgium, and West Germany. All Siebenbuerger Sachsen have been of the Evangelist faith since the reformation of Martin Luther in the 16th century

I have been 'monitoring' your list for a while and have learned a lot about the region my family came from. A lot of things make more sense to me now! I am finally checking in with my first dilemma.
In passenger records from 1929 when my gr-grandfather, Mihai Stumpf (or Michael -b. 1898 in "Katalinfalva"), immigrated to Canada his birth place was listed as Me?dsoana and place of residence was listed as Bulgarus, jud. Timis-Torontal. (The microfilm copy falters half way through the birth loca
- 20. RE: [BANAT-L] A question of accuracy 
- As a rule of thumb, my personal preference is to use the geographical
location as it was known "when they were there".
The majority of the area was known as the Austrian-Hungarian Empire up until
4 Jun 1920. If it falls in the Hungarian portion, I refer to it as Hungary.
I do this for a primary reason. The LDS FHC microfilms are catalogued this
way. GermanY was sort of a republic at the time as well. What with Baden,
Prussia, Bavaria and so forth. The LDS films again are catalogued in the

Danube Swabians translates into Donauschwben, so it does not matter which term you use.
It is not for us to decide how our 'tribe' is to be called, it was done so already in 1920 or there about and legally known as 'the youngest Germanic tribe'. Now we are living in all the corners of the world, - Argentina; Australia; Austria; Canada; Belgium, Brazil, Germany; New Zealand; USA, etc., etc., and even some stayed still back 'home'. One name will do for all of us.

Serbian (or Croatian? neither of which I understand).

- 24. Re: [BANAT-L] Banater Schwaben versus Donauschwaben 
- That "Donauschwaben" is a misnomer in describing all the ethnic Germans of
the Banat is I believe quite correct. The "Donau" part may be common as the
route they took, and I have to wonder if this part wasn't come up with not as a
result of the areas where they came from or lived but rather how they came. So
far so good. It is the "Schwaben" part that is misnamed because, as has been
pointed out already, the Banat Germans came from many areas of the "old
country". To give the old "tribal" counterparts
