Patricia Rosa; Fort Wayne, IN. KOLLY, KALLING, SCHUSTER, PILLER, Holling. All but SCHUSTER settled in Altbach, Germany. Religion: Roman Catholic. Holling is Fertoboz in Hungary (Gyor-Moson-Sopron Counties), and my family was deported in 1946 to Schwabishe Gmund, and then to Altbach, Germany. My mother was Hungarian, and my father was American stationed in Stuttgart. They married in 1952 in Altbach. My Mother was Johanna Kolly, born July 29 1933. Her sister was Luise Kolly, born April 11 or 12th circa 1930, and her brother was Johann Kolly. Grandfather was Lorenz Kolly, born Sept 26 1906 in Holling. His father was also Lorenz Kolly, circa 1884 in Holling, died in Illmitz, Austria 1959 or 1960. Stepmother was Emilie ?? Kolly. His mother was Luise Kallinger, who died in 1912 in Holling. Grandmother was Helene Piller Kolly, born July 19 1907 in Holling. Her father was Johann Piller, who died in 1946 in Altbach, and her mother was Maria Schuster. My grandmother was 1 of 8 siblings, and an older brother left Holling, and came to America. I found a Karl Piller arriving in Ellis Island 1907 from Boz Hungary (which is also Fertoboz), and Maria Piller, arriving in 1908 in Ellis Island. I know my mother told me she had an uncle who came here and settled in New Mexico or Arizona possibly. I have a copy of the Expulsion Record from 1946, which is very interesting. I would appreciate anything you can help me with, as I can only trace my family to my great grandparents. I knew my mother was forced to leave, but I'm learning SO much more about the circumstances now. They were never bitter, and she did return once, in '92 or '96, for the re-dedication of her church. Thank you so much for this site. I have connected with one of my 2nd cousins already, and she is a wealth of knowledge of our family, and remembers my mother and my grandmother. This is so wonderful.

Carol R. Schuster; Williamsburg, VA. SULDERITS/SOLDERITS, HUTTER, KROPF, FORJAN, Inzenhof. Settled in America before 1850. Religion: Roman Catholic. Ancestors attended St. Emmerisch just over the Hungarian border. Johann SULDERITS, Sr. (great grandfather) was born about 1865-70. His wife Maria HUTTER (great grandmother) was born about 1870. I do not know Johann's parents, but Maria's parents were Leopold and Maria Hutter, who had four children: Maria (Johann's wife), Rose (m. BLAUKOVICH), Francesca (m. John GOLLINGER) and Leopold, Jr. Francesca (Fanny) HUTTER GOLLINGER emigrated from Inzenhof to Coplay (PA), in the early 1920s and her daughter Mary (m. John TAKER) emigrated with Lou's grandparents to America in 1929. Johann SULDERITS, Sr. and his wife Maria had at least one child Johann SOLDERITS/SOLDERITSCH (Lou's grandfather). He was born in Inzenhof on May 18, 1890. His wife Theresia FORJAN (Lou's grandmother) was born on January 8, 1897; presumably in this same area of Burgenland. Theresia's parents were Anton FORJAN and Theresia KROFT. Johann SULDERITS/SOLDERITS/SOLDERITSCH and his wife Theresia emigrated from Inzenhof in 1923 to Coplay, PA, leaving their three children temporarily in the care of their grandparents at their farm at 138 Inzenhof bei Gussing. They were Maria SOLDERITS (Lou's mother, b. 1915, in Inzenhof), Johann (aka John Wayne b. 1917 in Inzenhof), and Hedwig (b. 1919). The children were finally reunited with their parents in Cleveland (OH), in 1929. John SOLDERITSCH, Jr. returned to live out his life in Inzenhof, but Theresia remained in Cleveland (OH) to raise their five children --- Mary (Lou's mother), John, Hattie, Albert, and Emil. She died there on Feb. 23, 1969. We do not know exactly when John died, but he supposedly took his own life on his parents' farm. I know there are other SOLDERITSCH families who lived in Coplay (PA), but I am not sure how they are related to Lou's family. My theory is that Johann, Jr. may have had siblings or possibly uncles that we do not know about. I would love to know more about these Solderitsch families.

Catherine Svendsen; Woodbury, MN. DENK, TRUMMER, LOOS, KLINE, all Apetlon, settled all St Paul, MN, Religion: Catholic. Looking for Martin Denk born 26 April, 1894- Arrived in U.S. 13 May 1922. Elizabeth Trummer, born 24 January 1902- arrived in U.S. 26 October 1924. Baldhauser Trummer born 14 September, 1898 and arrived 4 October 1922. Elizabeth and Baldhauser are brother and sister and I believe they are cousins with Martin- I think their mother's maiden name is Denk. Martin was captured at Przmemysl and Baldhauser was wounded in WWI. I think Martin's father is also Martin Denk and that he was married to Maria Loos.
