Go here "One Step"
Click on the Manifest button, then read about recovering a lost manifest. Usually (I think) you can find the immigration information by reading their census record it ussually tells when and where ...........Best of my knowledge.

Indeed I have 3 pictures of me beside the grave marker of my great
grandfather. I can scan them. I believe the lady in the picture is an aunt/great
aunt still living (at the time) in Schag. It is very difficult to see the
dates it is easy to see the name.
This is a forward. I have nothing for Marc
beyond what's in the Lenauheim FB. In addition
to what Alex and John have already offered, maybe
someone else can help Marc with his Schag and
grave marker questions. ...Ja

- Lori -- not sure if anyone responded to this yet but the likely answer is
that the child was being named for the godparent. If you have the church
records you would see that. This was quite common. Susan

- 33. Re: [DVHH] Fw: [BANAT-L] Who decided that? Reversing Camps? 
- I believe that at one time Mauthausen was also a concentration camp. If it
then became a DP camp, it reminds me of an allegation that in many cases the
camps stayed the same, only the inmates became the new administrators, and
the old administrators became the new inmates. In a first-person story I
once read, the 'new administrator' bragged that he could kill as many
inmates in a month as the 'old administration' had managed to kill in a
year. If it is true, that too is history, but for the sake of balance

Hello Lori, hello Susan,
I think that it was allways about to get the first names of the "parents".
If the father was a Philipp, the firstborn son was named after him.
If the mother was a Katharina, the firstborn daughter was named after her.

- Hi Marc,
Congratulations on joining the search for your roots: it's a very
rewarding hobby to engage in :) I lived in the Sauerland for about a
year - absolutely beautiful region. The website www.sauerland.com is
a modern-day tourist website. They don't appear to have an English
translation - but the pictures will at least give you an idea of
where your ancestors came from. Many homes there are very old and
must be built and retained in a certain architectural style. Happy to

- Dear Members.
Wow! - I have to check the information with relatives to see if we are on
the right track. I'm sure this is the correct information.
To all of you who provided me with your information, THANK YOU.
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
- 37. [DVHH] Poem and flaowers 
- Dear Nancy,
Tell Alex to go ahead and use the poem. I am all for contributing towards flowers. Perhaps if too much gets donated it could be arranged to have more than one delivery about a week or so apart. It is later on that the tragedy really sinks in. Let us know where to send the money.
Donating what's left to a good cause is another option.
- 38. [DVHH] STEIGELE (HUTH) 
- Hello Eve,
yes, I have this Maria Elisabetha HUTH in my files too. She was born 31 oct 1825 and married Peter STEIGELE from Tscherwenka. But then I couldn't find this Peter in the Tscherwenka-file of Angela Hefner (see http://www.genealogienetz.de/vereine/AKdFF/tscherw.pdf).
There are only notes about the following STEIGELE / STEICHELE / STEICHELIN:
Steigele Franz * 06.10.1829 in Tschw + 02.02.1870 in Altker Sv 056/165 Philipp u Roth Kathar.

Thanks for checking! The Ruttinger name is not very common from all that I have seen. I've only seen in mentioned in Gajdobra and it is also listed on the Feldenzer Palanka site as a surname for Palanka.
My gut feeling here is that I'm probably one generation off from Gajdobra. My guess is that Anton Ruttinger was probably born in Mitrowitz, and his father was from Gajdobra. Of course, I won't know for sure until I can find records for Mitrowitz (not easy).

- 43. Re: [DVHH] Naming children 
- No Lori, it is not narrow-sighted. Remember too that with the Catholic
religion, the name had to also be a recognized Saint's name. Hence people
celebrate birth dates and name day - I know I am writing this wrong there
has been a very recent discussion on Name Days.
And sometimes the choices of names did seem to come from a small handful of
acceptable names. I guess if you think about, it will become clear. If
you always named for the godparents, then the name pool was limited to
family and clo

- 49. [DVHH] arranged marriages 
- Hello All,
Arranged marriages definitely happened, more so among the very well off than ordinary people. Often they were not happy, but money had to marry money. Sometimes the young couples fell in love. Sometimes they loved someone else but were pressured by both families to marry as was arranged. In the years shortly after the war, when everyone had nothing, the not so young couples got together with their first love.
It was worst if a girl, sometimes no more than fifteen or sixteen years old, marrie
