General Volunteer Look-up Request

This section is for non-region specific lookups.   

Please read our "Request Manners & Explanations" 

Note: in subject line of email, please enter the village name - example: Billed look-up request

IMPORTANT: Many people today have some sort of spam blocking capabilities set up for their email. This could either be through a stand-alone application on the computer or the ISP may have one set up for their customers (sometimes unknown to their customers). Upon receipt of an e-mail from someone not already in an "address book" some of these applications will send out an e-mail for the correspondent to click on a link in the e-mail in order to get the message through. Please be advised that many of our volunteers will not do this. The volunteer may have tried to contact you but could not. If you have such a filter on your incoming e-mail you may have to lower your threshold of blockage and try again.

Schildebirge Province / Fejer County, Hungary, location is 20-25 miles WSW of Budapest, Hungary. This is where the earliest "Donauschwabans" immigrated and settled before the  "Three Great Immigrations" began starting with the Caroline (1718-1737), Maria Theresian (1744-1772) and Josephinische (1772-1787).  These early settlers immigrated into Hungary circa 1695, purchased land and settled the area. The 2nd generation of the initial settlers began to immigrate into the Banat and once there were responsible in the creation of over 50 or more towns.
