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.

Notes & Tips from Henry Fischer!

Heimatbucher which means they deal with the story and history of certain villages or groups of villages.  They usually provide information on some of the families who lived there, while there are others like the Hengl books which are lists of colonists who arrived in various places chiefly in the Baranya which was the center of his research.  H. Fischer

Archivist in Szekszard: For those who are doing any research with regard to Swabian Turkey, especially in terms of Tolna County, through Joseph Martin I have been given an email address for the archivist in Szekszard that contains documents, conscription lists, contracts, etc for those interested in learning more about the early settlement that took place on the von Mercy estates along with the other Hungarian nobles and landowners. If you cannot communicate in German I would be happy to assist you or you can try Babelfish. The archivist is: Dr. Gyula Dobos and his email address is: tolnalev@c32.hu

There are costs involved in securing copies of any documents or contracts.
