Happy to have found this group, just from the short time I have been combing through the site, it looks like there is some really comprehensive research here and dedicated members. I've already been able to add some key info to my family branches.

Like other's have mentioned, I would love to find additional records for Werschetz/Vrsac, so if anyone has some leads, that would be great. I've seen some very comprehensive data bases exist for Triebswetter, so I'm sure to find a lot there, but so far its been harder on Werschetz.

Surnames you are researching:  Bohm, Jentner, Janlong, Heger, Hummel, Mathes, Thomas

I'm researching my father's family but finding it difficult. He was born in Susara, his father was Anton Bohm (born 1896) and his mother Elizabeth Jentner (born 1866)- who I suspect came originally from just across the border in Romania. I can find no trace of my father's mother, Ida Heger (born 1882) or in turn, his grandmother Suzanna Hummel- born around 1860. His family also included the Thomas and Mathes family who I think were from the same area.

In about 1949 he left Serbia and arrived in Germany with his older brother. he never forgot his homeland.

He had a lot of beautiful memories of his childhood in the Banat but unfortunately, dementia has robbed him of these. I'm trying to discover something of his past.

From what I can see the names I've mentioned seem quite infrequent so I'm hoping someone can help.

Guten Tag!

I interessiere mich fuer die Geschichte meiner Eltern. Mein Vater wurde in Ernsthausen geboren (1923) Meine Mutter wurde in Klek geboren. Wer kann mir genau sagen, wo diese Staedte liegen? Ich kann keine Karte im Internet finden, die diese Staedte im Banat (wo genau liegt das?) aufzeigen.

Vielleicht kennt jemand meine Mutter = Barbara Hoffmann (geb. Jegl) oder meinen Vater = Wilhelm Hoffmann? Ich glaube der Name vom Vater meiner Mutter war Phillip Jegl.

Veilleicht weiss jemand etwas?

Viele Gruesse
E. Hoffmann

How did you learn about the DVHH site?:  Family research
Comments/suggestions about the Project:  Great website!!
Surnames you are researching:  Bottlinger, Botlinger, Mihelbergel, Temple, Wolf
Villages of interest to you:  Szatmer, Cromksr

Hello...Just found out my family ancestors are Danube Swabians...very exciting. My grandparents emigrated to the US from the port at Hamburg, Germany in 1903. The passenger lists show the Botlinger family members alternately as from Hungary, Romania and Magyar. Some of my family members insist we are originally from southwestern Germany prior. And I've come to find out that we are indeed Danube Swabians!! I'm looking for anyone with connections to Bottlinger, Botlinger, Mihelbergel, Temple or Wolf.

The Barbi, Hartmann, Becker all lived and worked closely together and managed a hotel and a pig butchery in Veliki Gaj until the Nazi soldiers came and killed some and sent others to the camps. Josef Barbi (Parents: Jozsef Barbi, Magdalena Petischan) was in his late teens when they arrived and was sent to Werschetz for school evaluations. From there he was conscripted into the military, while his sister Hedvig was sent to the Serbian Coal mines for labor. Josef served the German-Nazi Army until being placed in his platoon to lead, he lead them straight into the English to surrender them. He spent the last days of the war in England serving the Royal Army in the Bomb-Disposal Unit. Post WWII, living in Fareham, he married and had a daughter, Anne Kathleen. He also found his sister Hedi again and his mother, Magda living in Temesoura Romania. Since Stateless and with only what he could carry, the family of three moved to the USA, Portland, Oregon. Om the plane to Seattle, Wa., Josef met the owner of Jim Fischer
