Thanks so much for this info, Ron! And greetings to everyone from Okotoks near Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Maria Theresa's life story set in its historical background and supplemented with maps of ever-changing Europe will certainly help me better understand the creation of a donau-schwab nation. After all, 'a picture says a thousand words.'
My mother, born in Torontal, Hungary, and now 95, will be thrilled!

Re: Death of Philipp Lung

 

Dave,

Thanks for passing along this news.  Like many on this list, but especially because my ancestors were also in Sigmundfeld, Philipp Lung's name lives large in all my genealogical endeavors.  Isn't is strange when someone you've never been been able to meet in person seems more like family than some of your own family?  While he is now gone, his impact and memory will be with us for a long, long time.

With sadness--

Bill

I was so sad to hear of Philipp’s stroke, and then his passing.  He was always willing to help guide my research.  Later he guided Dave Dreyer and I when we wrote our first family book.  Philipp was a great help with getting that first effort published.

Though we were only acquainted via email, he became a good friend. His passing is a great loss to the Banat community.

Really sad to hear these news. Philipp has guided my research for a number of years in villages such as Sigmundsfeld, Albrechtsflor and Pardan. Many of my discovered Hüpfel members came into light because of his assistance. Fare well in peace.

Maria Theresia TV Series 2017

Ron
 

Hi everyone,

 

I posted this on the donauschwaben forum and thought I might post it here also.

 

I have recently been reading about the period drama series “Maria Theresia” made in 2017 (which is similar to the Netflix series “The Crown and the BBC series “Victoria”).

 

It was on German TV last year (I’m guessing also Austrian / Hungarian / Slovakia TV also) – the actors apparently spoke their own languages and then their lines were overdubbed for each country.

 

Apparantely it was also bought by PBS in the states last year – so will also be shown there.

 

I’ve attached a couple of links to the official trailers for both series – (hope this is ok).

 

Series 1 is the young Maria Theresia / Series 2 is when she is older.

 

https://youtu.be/iwtiDhp4rwQ

 

https://youtu.be/gDS1u16QeI0

 

What I find interesting is that Maria Theresa married Franz Stefan Von Lothringen and Lothringen itself is one of the plot lines in the series.

 

As Maria Theresa allowed people on both sides of the border to become colonists in the Hungarian Empire, I’m wondering if she had a soft spot for Lothringen as her husband (who was the duke of Lorraine / Lothringen when he married her), later had to give up his hereditary titles there. I know this is a historical drama series, but I also hope to learn something from it.

 

In Jahrmarkt, where my mother was born, the largest % of colonists came from Lothringen.

Thought you guys in the states, who may not have heard of it, might be interested.

Ron

Re: Reitzer family Temeswar/Temeschburg and Grieser/Griezer/Grieszer family Gross Kikinda

 

Dear all,
I just found the translation to German of the Hungarian birthcertificate of my grandgrandfather.
It says father of Johann Reitzer (28.12.1890) was Franz Reitzer, born in REKES-SZOELOEK, now living in Temeswar Fabrikstadt. Mother Grieser Theresia. Godfather Margit Reitzer.
There is still a 100% match to the other siblings of Franz as in the Rekasch familybook.
1 Franz                 *5 Jul 1862  identical, except marriages: (1oo Margarete Funk, 2oo Josefa Schuetz??)
2 Josef                  *30 May 1864      identical 28.5.1864
3 Karl                            *1 Nov 1866   identical
4 Johann                      *22 Dec 1868                    +19 Dec 1869
5 Andreas                           *28 Aug 1870 identical  15.9.1870
6 Susanna                        *18 Oct 1872                +1 Aug 1873   identical
7 Anna                             *22 Jun 1874    identical
I guess Rekes Szölök is Rekas?  Best regards, Lukas
