This first section of the 4 section newsletter contains:

* Immigrant New World Addresses In Allentown, PA
* Schachendorf History Question

(Hundreds of surnames with villages of origin and subsequent Pennsylvania
addresses. We are very pleaased to bring you this series courtesy of Phyllis
Sauerzopf and Bob Strauch.)

ED. Note:In addition to proper spelling of surnames and Burgenland villages
of origin, the name and address of new world (US) settlement place is of
equal importance. If you have this data, you have a tool to search other
genealogical sources. Census records, city directories, court house files,
local church records, cemeteries etc. can then all yield up more data.

Those of us born where immigrant ancestors settled frequently have this
information; however, later generations may have only vague recollections or
family tradition. One source of US origin can be ethnic publications, printed
here in the United States, to which immigrants subscribed.

Most of our "Auswanderung period" immigrant ancestors could read and write,
although their schooling was limited. The Empire believed in literacy and
most children of the "Auswanderung" period attended school through the
equivalent of our sixth grade. This was my grandmother Sorger's level of
formal schooling in Güssing. She read German novels and cook books, a few
German language newspapers and also a German weekly dedicated to
Austro/Hungarian immigrants. This was in addition to reading books, magazines
and newspapers written in English. Her ability to write English was limited,
but she wrote well using German script.

For immigrants, reading ethnic publications was and is a link to the "Heimat"
and they were eagerly shared among friends and relatives. I remember my
retired "Uncle Louie" (great-uncle Louis Hadle, born Vas Megye, Hungary 1878,
to US 1902) visiting weekly and exchanging his German language newspaper for
his sister-in-law's German magazine. He was always served a glass of whiskey
and I'm sure this had something to do with the regularity of his visits.

While not certain, I believe the traded magazine was published by National
Weeklies, Inc. Winona, Minnesota and printed in the US. This same
organization also published the German-Hungarian Family Yearbook or
Deutsch-Ungarischer Familien Kalendar- Ein Jahrbuch der Deutschen aus Banat,
Batscha, Burgenland, Slavonien, Ungarn und Oesterreich (We mentioned this
publication in previous newsletters. Chicago correspondent Tom Glatz sent me
some pages showing Chicago area immigrants. The Kalendar was an annual
publication listing subscribers' names and addresses and the name of their
European village, a way to locate and keep track of former family, neighbors
and friends.

BB member Phyllis Sauerzopf () contacted Bob Strauch, our
Allentown BG correspondent (Bob has no email address) for tickets to an
Allentown Austro/Hungarian Vets Club affair and Bob showed her a 1951 copy of
the Kalendar. They thought it would be of interest to the BB membership and
Phyllis agreed to key the data and send it to me.

Phyllis writes: "I would be happy to copy all of the names from all of these
towns and email them to you. Bob Strauch graciously told me if I have any
questions to call him. The front cover of the Calendar is in German type
script: (aus Oesterreich on one line), then für das Jahr 1951. There is a
large picture of a church on a hill with mountains behind it. It also shows:

Zwanzigster Jahrgang
Preis $1.00
N A T I O N A L W E E K L I E S, I N C.
Printed in U.S.A.

(ED Note: I've searched the net, but I've not been able to determine if this
organization is still extant. If anyone has further information, please let
me know.)

SUBSCRIBERS FROM THE 1951 "Deutsch-Ungarischer Familien Kalendar"(courtesy
Phyllis Sauerzopf and Bob Strauch)

Phyllis writes: "There are some misspellings of villages and surnames (and
street names) but I will print them as spelled. There are some that are not
from Burgenland, but from other parts of Hungary, and Romania and elsewhere."
(ED.-we have added some suggested spellings in parens where appropriate. Data
includes name, village of origin, spouse name, village of origin, house
number and Allentown street. "Aus" means "out of" or "from." Majority of the
villages are from southern Burgenland. Allentown street names are in the 1st,
6th, 9th, and 10th wards. These wards (contiguous) almost comprised a
Burgenland village although they were also home to other ethnic groups
including Italian, Ukrainian, Syrian, Russians and earlier Palatinate
Germans. Allentown does have "1/2" addresses.)

Dear Mr. Berghold: Thanks to your help I was able to get my dual citizenship,
after 8 months of research for various records that you were able to direct
me to. When I went to the Austrian Consulate office in Chicago to finalize
all the qualification, I was told by the Consul General that Schachendorf was
famous because of the murders of citizens either pre-WWI or right after. He
didn't elaborate, and was called away. I was wondering if anyone could fill
me with the facts, as I never heard about this.
