1. [DVHH] Epiphany -Three Kings. [1]
Epiphany - Three Kings: The custom of the singer, reminiscent of the travel of the Three Kings is still very much alive in Bavaria and Austria. Beginning with New Years and through January 6, children dressed as the kings, and holding up a large star, go from door to door, caroling and singing a Three Kings' song. For this they receive money or sweets. Formerly the collected donations went to unemployed craftsmen and veterans. Wishing you all, a Happy Epiphany - Heilige Dreikvnige. Alex Leeb. (Admin.) H

4. Re: [DVHH] Soundex Codes [1]
Last January, Rose Mary Posted this link to Family Tree magazine with a soundex code calculator. I found it so helpful I thought I would repost it for our new researchers. Most of us have heard of Soundex, but may not have learned anything about why the code was developed. To me, the explanation is still somewhat confusing, but if you input some of your surnames into the calculator, then check them against the key, you will begin to understand why/how some of these alternate spellings came into use.
5. Re: [DVHH] Roll Call 2008 [1]
Hi Helen, In addition to the Gimpels, there are several Ott and Vingeron/Wingeron families in the Kleinjetscha family book. Also a couple of Jochum/Jochaim families and one Peter Rvmisch (1769 colonist from Luxembourg). Are you looking for someone in particular? I'm also happy to scan and send all of them to you.

6. Re: [DVHH] Naming children [1]
Yes. That certainly all makes sense. They were Lutheran (an exception to the rule that all DS were Catholic, I understand), but the church records book for Semlak's Lutheran community listed all names used in the records. They appear to be either biblical or Germanic. As was the case with this line of my family, there was very little variance in names: many Martins, Katherines, Elisabeths, Adams, and Josefs. In contrast, I understand that Vietnamese tradition is to be careful NOT to name your c

8. Re: [DVHH] deciphering church records [1]
Yes we sometimes have to initially take our best guess in some cases and then we back it up with fact or dissmiss it. On another subject, Seems I remember our family talking about arranged marriages when I was young. I wonder if anyone has run across proof that such of a thing happened in Donauschwaben area's or Germany? Susan Williams wrote: Kurt --that is true about the analogy. You may not have much use for looking for godparents and witnesses being the same,

10. Re: [DVHH] Word look up please - Dienstknech [1]
My father was raised on a farm in Bavaria.? He told me that they always had two "helpers" on the farm: a man called a Knech (or knecht?) and a woman called a "Magd"? (I don't know the spelling)? The Man would help with the farm chores, and the woman helped in the house and with the chores a woman would do. ? Since I know the word Dienst means "service" I am would asume this is someone who is in service to the family, ? There is probably someone with a better explanation. ? Marilyn --

Hi Eve There is a great difference between the interment camps during Hitlers reign and the turned into refugees concentration camps after the war was over. The refugees concentration camps which served our German people from the East and Southeast Europe were not interment camps they were primarily concentration camps from where people were disbursed as fast as soon as opportunities for them were found elsewhere. However, they were in operation for some ten years till most of the people living there

It was signed by Camp CMDR Hungarian Camp (signature which I cannot read) D.P. Section H. O. M, G LAND Sieiermark.

Yvonne -- sometimes marriage witnesses werre the couple's godparents- godfather,to be specific. Marriage witnesses were always men. Godparents were in many instances (if not all) married couples; Occasionally, I have seen just one person listed, in my case it has been a godmother. I have early records where I was able to trace marriages of one person because the same people were used as godparents for the children of both marriages. The information about godparents being marriage witnesses can hel

I have no connections to your people and I never heard of Bogarosch before. When I googled Ripplinger Lothringen Bogarosch only the Pese-Website came up. Yes, the Website is confusing.
