Sep 2019 Yvonne Juhl passing - Cruise 2017

A picture of Yvonne with my husband and me on our Danube cruise in 2017. - I am deeply saddened at the sad news of Yvonne's passing. She often helped people with research questions re their Apatin ancestry. We were cousins through our Strumberger ancestral line and I got to know her via emails.  I am so glad that a couple of years ago my husband and I got to know her better when we 3 took a Danube cruise with the Apatiner Gemeinschaft.

My cousin in Sombor sent me the link for the local (and beyond) DS website. I typed the name into Google and clicked on the "translate" button and was able to read the whole site.  It covers a number of communities in Hungary and northern Serbia. I was able to access the minutes and pictures of the Apatin meeting.

30 Apr 2008 Map of the 1795 flood in Apatin - (inundated by flood waters is shown in red) "In old Apatin" a branch of the Danube River separated the town into two parts.
The flood of 1795 destroyed most of the town with only one third of the old town remaining. "The church, the market, everything was destroyed by the flood. The old church is now in the middle of the river." (Boris Masic)
