Donauschwaben Villages Helping Hands (DVHH)

This list is associated with Donauschwaben Villages Helping Hands, Inc. [], a nonprofit volunteer project assisting researchers of Danube Swabian heritage. It is a bilingual English-German mailing list for anyone with an interest in the former Danube Swabian (ethnic German) villages situated in the six regions which were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918: Banat, Batschka, Hungarian Highlands, Sathmar, Swabian Turkey, Syrmia and Slavonia. We help researchers discover their Danube Swabian ancestral roots, history, environs, culture and lifestyle. We encourage our list members to ask questions, provide information and share discoveries. Our list was created in 2003 as a medium between the DVHH administration, volunteers-to-researchers and members worldwide. Our primary focus is, but is not limited to, DVHH-related announcements: introducing new members, volunteers, publications, book releases and social events, thus functioning as a home base for Danube Swabian researchers to post inquiries and share reliable resources for researchers worldwide. Our secondary focus is to promote and support the website. If you wish to submit items to be considered for publication, please contact the publisher. Volunteers can be found and privately contacted here:
