- 101. Re: [DVHH] Anna Taugner Leitermann - 1930 census 
- Linda and Kurt,
Interesting about the sugar beet farmers,
Kurt. I have found Conrad and Anna in the 1930
census in Royal Oak, Oakland, Michigan. The last
name is spelled (misspelled or changed?)
LISTERMAN. In this census, Anna is said to have
immigrated in 1908 and to have been born in
1894. Hmmmm... Linda, I will e-mail you the census separately.

My great grandparents were Evangelicals from the Batschka and none of their children were named after them. I think one of their sons was named after an uncle.

- Thanks Karen!
This is all useful information. It's great to know that the Ruttingers were one of the original settlers of Gajdobra. I have no doubt that I'll eventually trace back to them. I just posted a reply to Alice in Michigan's email to the mail list. I do believe that she has found my Anton. She provided a trace back to a Peter Ruttinger that was born in Gajdobra in 1809. Does that fit in with what you see in the OSB?
Thanks again for your help. These small victories help keep me

many, many years for German immigrants (both from Germany and ethnic
Germans like my family), so i thought this article on baby Adam Paul

Germanic Peoples. We (dad) was stationed in Fulda from 1945-46 then again 1948-52.

The first to appear from your list is Mathias
HOCKL b. 28.02.1717 in Berghausen; he appears to
have come through Vienna in 1766. The Lenauheim

- 115. Re: [DVHH] Word look up please - Dienstknech 
- Hi Liz, The word Dienstknecht is composed of the word: "Dienst" which means service and "Knecht", which means menial, or servant. If he was working on a farm then it could translate to "farm hand" or "farm labourer". But Dienstknechte were also used in other areas. In general, a Dienstknecht is a low paid helper for low jobs.

Thats interesting, I was told by the man that did the research in Karlsrue that they were not allowing people to immigrate to French Guyana that year. I don't recall if I ever knew the reason why they didn't allow it, but that is a good question. I will have to see if I can find the answer.
Now where do I look..............;-)
