EMIGRATION AS A MILITARY BRIDE (from Susann Piccinino)
ED. NOTE: Burgenland emigration to the United States can be divided into
three major periods, prior to 1890, the great "Auswanderung" 1890-1922, and
the period following 1922 (when quota and immigration laws went into effect.
Some later emigrants entered through refugee and political asylum visas as
well as marriage to US citizens). Most of our research has involved the first
two groups. We have had very little correspondence concerning the third. Of
special interest is the war bride situation. Susann Piccinino
<<My Grandmother, Anna Von Gott, born in 1900 to Maria Baierl and Johann Von
Gott, was orphaned in 1904 at the Orphanage Kloster Neuburg. Anna Von Gott
married Joseph Wanderer from Breitenbrunn, Burgenland in 1929. My mother
Rosalia Wanderer was born September 28, 1933. Rosalia Wanderer married Carlo
Piccinino an American soldier around 1950 or 1951 and came to the USA.
Anything you have or that you can direct me to regarding my family please let
me know and put me on your list for newsletters.>>
My reply: Breitenbrunn (Hungarian name Fertöszeleskut) is now in the district
of Eisenstadt (pre 1921 in the district of Ödenburg, Sopron Megye, Hungary).
It has its own church and records from 1828-1921 are available from the LDS
(see our archives on how to do this).
Your case is interesting in that you're the first case of a military marriage
emigration that we've been made aware of in over 600 members. The orphanage
situation is also interesting. I'd like to do an article on this. Could you
expand what you've written? I'd like to include it in a future newsletter. We
could also send it to Austria for inclusion in the Burgenlandische
Gemeinschaft Newsletter. They'd love to have such a story and it could result
in some contacts from relations. Be sure to contact Albert Schuch as
explained in our Invitation Letter (I'm copying him). G. Berghold, BB
Susann replies: I received only a little bit more information regarding the
military immigration of my mother Rosalia Wanderer and her sister
Josephine...Thank you for the help and the interest in my story. I am looking
forward to continuing my research at your wonderful web site.
My Grandmother, Anna Von Gott Schuh, was born in 1900 to Maria Baierl and
Johann Von Gott Schuh, in Korneuburg, Nieder Oesterreich. Maria and Johann
died in a flu epidemic. Anna and her sister Rosalia were orphaned and an
elderly aunt took them in for a short time, but they were eventually sent to
the Orphanage; Kloster Neuburg run by Catholic Nuns in 1904.
Rosalia Von Gott Schuh was married to a farmer from Hausdorf. They had a
winery which was passed onto their children. The winery is still run by a
Anna Von Gott Schuh was sent off to be a nanny and house keeper for the
postmaster of Niederleis, Andreas Halzl and his wife Maria.
Andreas Halzl arranged for her to be married to Joseph Wanderer from the
village Breitenbrunn, Burgenland. Joseph was widowed with 4 children and Anna
brought him 1000 schillings as a dowry.
The first child of Anna Von Gott Schuh, Josephine Wanderer, was born on
January 17 1929. My mother Rosalia Wanderer was born September 28, 1933. They
also had a son named Franz (birth date unknown).
Josephine Wanderer married an American Soldier Robert MacKie and migrated to
America. They boarded a train to Livorno Italy and from there boarded a
military ship on January 17, 1953 to America. They had 6 children all of who
I am in contact with. My Aunt Jo lives only about one hundred miles from me
at Lake of the Ozark Missouri. I am trying to get family history from her.
Rosalia Wanderer married Carlo Piccinino an American soldier around 1950 or
1951 and she came to the USA also. I believe that she came before her sister
Josephine did. Rosalia Wanderer died in 1988 and never spoke of her heritage
to me. Anything you have or that you can direct me to regarding my family
above please let me know.
