A few words from the Village Coordinator:

When I was growing up I heard my grandparents came from a village called Feketic and I knew it was somewhere in Yugoslavia.  But I didn't know much else. In 1996 I was deployed to Hungary.  While I was there my father sent me a list of 50 names of Schwebler families in Germany.  I sent letters to many of them and after I received responses I made arrangements to meet a couple of the families, one near Heidelberg and another near Munich.  When I visited the family near Munich they show me the book about the village of Feketic written by Dr. Pratscher.  I was thrilled and asked them for a copy.  Later they sent me a copy and I have been translating ever since.

  Assistant Coordinator

Greetings, my name is Kim Geiger. I was bitten by the genealogy bug in my mid 20s, and have been at it off and on ever since...Two of my "lines" I have been able to trace to residing in Feketitsch. I don't know the duration of their stay. I believe that they moved around a little bit...This area has proven to be difficult to acquire information on, but I have spent quite a few hours digging, none the less.

With much help from other kind genealogists I have been guided down the right pathways.  I hope that some of my information will help others.

- Ever digging, Kim Geiger
