Hello Alex....thank you for all this good information. The names day is a particularly
intersting story. Is it still in use??
However, my main question/comment here is about the Evangelical and Reformed parishes.
And this is somewhat deviating from this list. However, I am searching for a birth
certificate for a female child born 22.Nov.1904 somewhere in Hungary. Her parents were
married on 4.Feb.1904 in Mihalyi at the Catholic Church there. The mother, however, was
Anglican and so they may have had the child baptised in a protestant church.
So, my question is this: Does anyone know the names of the protestant churches
But I have even a bigger question. Is there any way a person here in the US could buy or
get a telephone book for Hungary? I doubt there is one for the entire country, but just
for selected areas. Yes, I have looked on the internet on the telephone sites but it is
tedious and time consuming. And I don't always perhaps fill in the blanks just as
they should be because of language difficulty.
I would particularly want one of the Mihalyi area........also Jobahaza which I believe is
not that far away. Does anyone have one on this list (even if it is a few years old) that
would be willing to sell to me. Or where could I get a new one??
Many thanks for some kind of answer. I appreciate all of you who share.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. We actually had snow in Texas on Christmas Eve.
A sincere thank you,

Happy Names Day.
A Happy Names Day, to all the John's (Hans, Johannes, Janos).
December 27th, is the Feast of the Apostle Johannes, in both, the Catholic and the
Lutheran Churches. A Schwob's saying is; "I want you to remember me by my Name,
not by my age." Birthdays were never celebrated. On June 29th, is the Feast Day for
St.Peter and ST.Paul. The harvest always began on Peter and Paul, June 29th.

After the Edict of Tolerance was issued by Emperor Joseph II, on December 21, 1781,
And the Charter of Settlement was written, Evangelical and Reformed immigrants arrived.
They established the denominationally mixed villages of Torschau ( Torza )-
1784, Neu-Verbas-1885; Czervenka ( Cherwenka)-1786 and Neu-Schowe. The other four
communities- Sekitsch; Klein-Ker; ( Kisker ), Bulkes and Jarek were exclusively
Evangelical. All of these communities are of special significance, because from these
localities further emigration took place to South Russia. The living conditions could not
have been very favourable, otherwise it remains inexplicable why so many people from the
above-mentioned villages joined the emigrants who were moving down the Danube or often
travelled at night in their horsedrawn wagons, frequently with false documents, through
Transylvania, Bukowina, Moldavaia and Bessarabia, to the already established colonies near
Czervenka - established - 1785, -35 German families emigrated to South Russia.
