PITTSBURGH ETHNIC CLUB (suggested by Anna Kresh)

Ethnic clubs were very popular with the immigrants and their first generation
because they were a piece of the homeland. A place were you could hear the
old language spoken, eat ethnic food, hear ethnic music and meet other
immigrants. Following WWII and the coming of later generations they began to
die out except in the larger cities. They added much to our heritage. From
time to time we hear from a few-there are the Chicago, New York City and
Allentown-Northampton-Coplay-Lehigh Valley Clubs. There are also the Austrian
Societies that feature student scholarships. I belonged to one in Wilmington
DE (the Austrian American Society) which raises money through an annual ball
to send students to study at Salzburg. Many of these are not strictly
Burgenland clubs and I've had one group tell me "Burgenland-oh you're
Hungarian, but we'll accept you anyway!" Nonetheless, you'll find acceptance
and "Gemütlichkeit" in most.

Anna Kresh lives near Pittsburgh and she sends me some literature concerning
the Teutonia Männerchor at 857 Phineas St. Pittsburgh, PA 15212. They have a
full schedule of events as well as restaurant facilities featuring ethnic
food. They are even open for lunch. I notice they have three choirs, a
schuhplatter group, a "pool" league, a "66" club (retirees?) and even a
Schützen Verein (a shooting club). Having followed the shooting circuit for
over thirty years, some day I must do an article about the very ancient
"Schützen Vereins"-still popular in Austria and Germany. A sensible approach
to target shooting which started when they began using crossbows. The
Teutonia features ethnic festivals (they hold "Schlachfests" or butchering
festivals) and musical evenings with entertainment and dancing. I didn't
notice any strudel or goulash on any of their menus but they do feature
"schnitzels" and "würst" of all types, apple and cherry kuchen and what they
call pancakes ($2.50 extra for 4) may be "palatschinken!" Dues (as shown in
the March 2001 newsletter) are $45. They issue a very nice 8 page monthly
newsletter. We must visit Anna and have her take us there as a guest some
day! Anna's also sent the program for their Spring Concert (Frühjahrs
Konzert) 28 April 2001, featuring a chorus of 100 voices. A tremendous ethnic
"Germanic" package for limited annual dues.

Anna included the program for the 16th (March 10) Austrian Ball (dinner
dance) held by the Austrian American Cultural Society of Pittsburgh. Since
1997 they've awarded eight scholarships totaling $20M to Univ. of Pittsburgh
students for study in Austria. The program cover includes the "red-white-red"
of Austria with the Habsburg coat of arms and the Strauss monument in
Vienna's City Park.

If you live near Pittsburgh and are interested in ethnic events you'd do well
to check out both of these organizations.


I must admit that when the idea of having a book reprinted first came up, I
was not all that enthralled. The BB Newsletter alone takes up more time than
I wish to devote. However, when Bob Unger sent me a copy of subject book, I
couldn't resist making it available to the membership. Fortunately Bob and
the author's son Rudy Unger took full responsibility and I merely had to
provide some review and correspondence. In addition, I wasn't sure the
membership would respond. Fortunately my fears were not justified. Bob Unger
sends the following:

Unger book status report: Many thanks to all those who requested a copy of
the book entitled "Twenty-five Years of My Life in My Home," by Robert Unger,
covering the period of 1897-1922 in Burgenland. As of May 28, we had
requests for 192 copies of the English version and nine requests for the
German language version. Rudy Unger informed me that he plans to start
mailing books to those who have sent their checks - sometime in June 2001,
subject to the receipt of the books from the printer. Rudy has ordered 200
books from the printer - allowing for a few for those who read the book and
then decide that they want another copy for a gift. Because of the number of
book requests, Rudy has been able to offer the book, in paperback form for a
cost of $15.00 per copy, including shipping and handling within the U.S.A.

For those who have requested the German language version of the book, the
number of requests is not yet sufficient to republish that version. However,
we are still pursuing that matter and will keep Burgenland Bunch members
posted on developments via the newsletter.

Hopefully I was successful in responding to each and everyone who sent me an
email requesting for the book. If I some missed someone, I apologize - I
tried. If I failed to send you a response, you can obtain a copy/s of the
English version of the book by ordering it directly from Rudy Unger at the
following address:

Rudolph M. Unger
6915 Lexington CT.
Tinley Park, IL 60477

(1) Send check made out to Rudolph Unger; $15.00 per copy

(2) Include a slip of paper with your name and address clearly printed in
large letters - to be used as a mailing label for your book. This will help
Rudy Unger expedite shipping.

I was surprised when Rudy told me the price of the paper back book was only
$15.00 postpaid. It cost me $17.20 just to copy the pages. So when one
factors in the cost of packaging and postage,the cost could be well over
$20.00. Receiving requests, packaging, addressing, mailing - what a job Rudy
has volunteered to do for us. We're getting a bargain, but the best part will
come when you read the book. That experience is priceless!

Our thanks to Rudolph Unger for allowing the book to be republished.
Sincerely, Bob Unger, Burgenland Bunch Contributing editor: (No relation to
the Author of the book - at least no relationship has been established yet.)


Members Jim Seifert, Albert Schuch, Fritz Konigshofer and I have been working
on the life of Father Alexander Berghold, priest, poet and author. We've
uncovered many details of his life, which you can find in our newsletter
archives. Jim recently used the "Google Search" (c) to see what he might
find. Although he met our files, he also found some other material. You might
see what is available for some of your names.
