Schildgebirge Province
Fejer County

Schildgebirge 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.
