Is anyone familiar with a town known as Gross St. Miklos? I am trying to
find information on a Juliana Boehmer that was born in 1856. That is the
birthplace she showed on her passenger list when she immigrated to St.
Louis, MO.. She was the widow of Janos Becker.
Her daughter Katherine Becker married a Nicholas Dewald and they came to
St. Louis in the early 1900s.. Their son married my relative, Katherine
Mueller whose family came to St. Louis from Covaci so assume the Dewalds
may have lived in or near Covaci before coming to St. Louis. I also have
Beckers in my tree who came from Trier around Oberemmel and Pellegen. I
found the name Dewald in Pellegen. Looks like the families all migrated
from Trier to the area around Billed in Romania before coming to St. Louis.
Is there a St. Miklos in the Banat?
First, I want to thank all of you who helped me find my great grandmother(s) in Bohemia. I was able to trace all the way back to my 3rd great grandmother!
Now I would like to ask if anyone has access to a family book or church or parish records for the villages of Bakowa or Ebendorf. I am looking for two names: Johann Vagendorf (or Wagendorf) and Vencil Turasek (also Jurasek). Both names would be between 1820 and 1900. I have more information about names and dates, but it's probably not relevant unless those surnames are found in the records somewhere. Thank you so much.

Saskatchewan, Canada in 1911. Died in Gravelbourg, SK.
2. Magdalena b. c1872 m. Martin Riem/Rheim. Either they or a son moved to

Does anyone know anything about the whereabouts of Magdalena m Riem,
Margaret m. Wiemer or Katherine m. Zeller?
Thanks for any help
Hi all. I am seeking info on the children of Peter Hornung (b. 1823 in
Parabuty, s/o Franz Hornung & Susanna Schneider b. Hörden, Rastatt, Germany)
and Marianna Reiter (b. 1834 in Bukin, d/o Franciscus Reiter & Marianna
Magdalena Klesz from Bukin).
Peter & Marianna married in 1849 in Parabuty, had at least 7 children there,
then moved to Franztal about 1867-1868, where they had 2 more children.
Their son Lorenz is my great grandfather.
Children born in Parabuty:
1. Matthias b. 1853 likely died young
2. Peter b. 1856 d. 1857
3. Theresa m. Johann Waldenspiel and their descendants moved to Mondsee,
Austria after WWII. I have some info about them.
4. Peter b. 1860 d. 1867 in Parabuty
5. Franciscus b. 1863 m. unknown - no further info
6. Stefan b. 1864 m. unknown - no further info
7. Lorenz b. 1866 is my great grandfather. He married Teresa Putz in
Franztal in 1887 and moved to Saskatchewan, Canada in 1911.
Children born in Franztal:
8. Katharina b. c1868 m. Georg Laudenbach in Frantzal and their descendants
(at least their grandson Thomas) appear to have moved to Boblingen area,
Baden-Württemberg, after WWII. I can see some of the Laudenbach Thomas tree
on MyHeritage but do not have a subscription and so cannot contact the
9. Magdalena b. c1870 m. Matthias/Matthew Brenner, also in Frantzal - no
So far, Lorenz in the only one of the children of Peter Hornung and Marianne
Reiter who came to North America.
Does anyone know anything about this family, particularly Franciscus or
Stefan or Magdalena. Or about the Laudenbach family in Boblingen.
Thanks for any help

Dear list members,
Does someone of you have church books for Karlsdorf, Banatski Karlovac?
My direct ancestor (5 generations) is Veronica IPACH (perhaps also spelled
Übach), born in Karlsdorf 28th September 1824. She later married in
Weißkirchen (Bela Crkva).
Her parents were Bernhard and Eva Ipach.
Her siblings all born in Karlsdorf: Eva & Elisabeth (both 5.5.1823),
Barbara (25.8.1827), Elisabeth (28.4.1830), Andreas (7.8.1832), Johann
(23.9.1834), Bernhard (4.3.1837), Peter (29.6.1838), Nikola (30.8.1841)
I would be interested, if her parents married in Karlsdorf and were also
born there. And if there are more generations back in Karlsdorf or somewhere
Thank you for every help or idea.
The ethnic Germans from southeastern Europe were never citizens of the German Reich. It ceased to exist in 1945.
They arrived in Austria and Germany as displaced persons/refugees near the end of World War II. They received DP ID passes. In Germany by the mid 1950’s their passports said
‘Den Deutschen gleichgestellt’ = Equal Standing to the Germans. I don’t know what terms the Austrians later used. I think they eventually became citizens.
I hope this explanation helps.
I have found your family in Etschka and will send that info privately.

My grandparents were German speakers from Romania. They came to the U.S.
in 1952 via a displaced persons camp in Linz, Austria.
Is anyone aware of any searches or records requests that I can make to
determine whether my grandparents were ever naturalized in the German Reich?
Thanks in advance,

Could someone help me find death certificate or any other records for Anton Koch from Himeshaza. He died March 19, 1922.
