Mailing Lists

  • Banat Mailing List at Rootsweb, with browse and search capacity
    Topic: A bilingual English-German mailing list for information on people who migrated eastward, primarily in the 1700s, from various former German States and settled lands in the Danube Basin of South-central Europe. These settlers, later referred to as Danube Swabians (in German Donauschwaben), lived in communities which are located today in Hungary, Romania, and countries of the former Federation of Yugoslavia. The focus of the list is genealogy, and history as it relates to the language, food, customs, culture, and lives of these unique peoples circa 1700 to the present. All historical areas of Danube Swabian habitation and culture are discussed on the list, and include former Austrian and Hungarian administrative regions known as Batschka, Bosnia, Sathmar, Schwaubische Turkei (Hungary), Slavonia, Syrmia, Vojvodina, and others.
  • Donauschwaben Villages Mailing List at Rootsweb, with browse and search capacity.
    Topic: A bilingual English-German mailing 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 & Slavonia. We help researchers discover their Danube Swabian ancestral roots, history, environs, culture and lifestyle. We encourage our list members to ask questions and share discoveries. This mailing list is associated with The Donauschwaben Villages' Helping Hands (DVHH) website below: DVHH is a volunteer project for researchers of Danube Swabian Heritage.

Websites

  • Remembering Our Donauschwaben Ancestors Publishes historical and genealogical information on the Donauschwaben villages and provides a repository of information specific to Donauschwaben genealogy.
  • The Working Group of Danube-Swabian Researchers (AKdFF) The "Working Group of Danube Swabian Family Researchers" or in German, "Arbeitskreis donauschwaebischer Familienforscher" is a society of over 700 members with headquarters in Sindelfingen, Germany, and specializing in Donauschwaben genealogy research. The goal of most researchers is to find the ancestors who were the original settlers in southern Hungary, and to find out where they lived in the old German states prior to migration
