I have in my family tree a line of Ripplinger/Replinger/Reblinger from
Bogarosch, with the oldest man born about 1748 in Lothringen. My notes
indicate that his wife was Katharina Piringer, born about 1736 (probably in
Lothringen/Lorraine?). Both were "Einwanderer" (original settlers) in

- Hi Anne.K.
With a little guidance from some list members postings, and if you say the
word Sandorhaasen, is mentioned in one of the documents, I believe the
following might be your answer. Is you noticed the Kutschera was common name
in the Banat. Keep in mind, many of them re settled to different villages.
Also as Susan mentioned before, some colonists immigrated from Bohemia, to
Banat, Batschka, etc..
Also, there are Kutschera's from Bohemia, who live in our city, they spell
their name as Cucsera.

There must've been a reason for their journey being denied, because they

Johann, 10.11.1775; Elisabetha, *19.03.1777; Josef, *19.03.1779; M.Klara
I have one of 33 volumes, which lists the names of people who emigrated from

I took Dienstknech and die-LOL sected it. I know not funny. Anyway Dienst

The problem in the immediate aftermath of the war is that many of
those who had survived the camps at war's end had nowhere to go.
Those that did, naturally went, but there were those, particularly
Jews from Poland, Ukraine, that could not/would not return. Adding to

The refugee camps in Germany and Austria were temporary lodgings, sometimes in barracks (usually not well insulated) where refugees were housed till they could find other accommodation or the authorities found some for them. Some of those camps were still inhabited in the mid 1950's. I had still relatives in the Schlotwiese camp in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen in 1953. My husband's family was in Moschendorf.
The camps were often crowded, especially in 1944
