476. Re: [DVHH-L] A Funny Link [1]
AH!! you made me laugh Rose Mary,,, now I wonder how many listers went and googled "finger grapschen"!!! I did a search for just "grapschen" and among the trash sites was this one: a English German dictionary, it means to grope / grab at. So I can imagine with finger preceding it, what the results would be. I am still laughing ;-)))) ..not at you, with you. You said "as he walked from his car to our cottage patio, his nieces and nephews would grab one" I think you are pr

You find electrical outlets everywhere in Northern Canada, hotels, businesses etc, anywhere really where a car will be sitting idle for extended periods of time, but what I hadn't heard of was parking meters with outlets built in. I am still unsure if they exist or if this was a joke :-) These outlets came in handy for my sister when she travelled with her family. My niece has asthma and would have to make frequent stops to have her asthma medication. My sister would park in these parking lots and plug

Leave it to Noelle to find him in the 1920 Census. This certainly looks like the right man. Now let's see if I can find him in the NY Marriages or Deaths.

If you go to the June Meyer site, she has the Leberknoedel soup recipe on her site. We love it, too and make it occasionally. I now make the leberknoedels in my blender or food processor.

485. Bawanischte: Grau [1]
Hello Everyone! Well....I've done what I could with the Mramorak Church Books. I'm left with two mystery characters: 1. Jakob Grau, Master Blacksmith from Bawanischte (Bavaniste). 2. N. Grau, tenant, Mramorak. There *may* be the possibility either of these two is the father of Peter Grau who is the father of Ludwig (born 1874 or 1876) and Daniel Grau (born 1877). I've elimated Daniel Grau born 1841 and Conrad Grau born 1846 because they would be way too young to be grandfathers of Ludwig and Dan

What a great article. We were there for 5 days 3 years ago. We had the advantage of being booked at a small B&B, where the bus stop was only about 1/4 mile, along the way to the bus stop we saw the most beautiful gardens, roses galore. Transportation was cheap and excellent.

491. Death in Childbirth & Remarriage [1]
Whenever I look over the data of my ancestors, I can't help but feel sad over the fact that there was hardly a family that did not lose one or more children at birth or at an early age--also the many women who died during or after childbirth. My own grandmother died after the birth of her eighth child--the child also died. My mother, the youngest, was two years old. Within a year her father married a widow with three children of her own and they had three more children together--so it was a case of "my c

AT&T's policy is lame. Any mail admin with half a clue can implement software to block viruses and spam at the server. I'd strongly recommend anyone with AT&T consider switching up to a real ISP that provides adequate protection without blocking major ISPs like Shaw. This is just ridiculous. You should also consider using a free mail account as Eileen did. AT&T is less likely to block mail from free accounts on Google or Yahoo (Hotmail has a long-standing bad reputation as a source of SPAM and viruses - it

Peel and cut up very finely at least 2 lbs of onions. In a heavy bottom pan (dutch oven) sauti them in lard, we never cooked with butter. Add about a half table spoon of salt. The onions should become very soft and limp and taste sweet. You will also notice they shrink and it's not as much as it first seemed. Meanwhile cut up the meat, chicken, pork, beef or veal. When the onions are ready add a couple of tablespoons on paprika, stir it thoroughly and immediately add the meat. Stir it all together, reduce

You are right Alex, it does mean "[I am your (humble)] servant". It is probably fairly old, and seems to have a Latin root. One could speculate that sometime in the middle ages, when people left their villages for the cities, they tried to become 'gentlemen' (or gentle men, or gentle women) and adopted a form of greeting used by speakers of Latin (educated people, educators, students?). It may have started out as a fad, but was persistent enough to stay with us. Fortunately, they at least shortened it to

497. RE: [DVHH-L] DS Protestant Settlers [1]
Alex, Until the late 1940s, we had only one church [the Catholic one seen here]: Then the colonists converted a German house into an Orthodox church, by placing a tiny sheet-metal spire on it. It can actually be seen slightly right-of-centre in this photo: Yes, I remember seeing churches topped of with a Kokosch. Apparently it was intended to remind the faithful of a call by Jesus to be 'awake'.

Rose -- Their strength brings tears to my eyes. Without these stories we would simply have no idea of what families such as your endured. These personal stories tell us so much -- not so just about their adversaries but about the strength of the people who fought for their lives. I am so glad this list is not simply limited to the genealogy of names and dates of birth, marriage and death. This list is alive with the stories of our families. Thank you for sharing your story.
