Brother Balthasar, born 12 Dec 1864, emigrated to Stearns County, Minnesota in 1889. I am one of the Krain Township Thell's and still living on the farm where I was born. My father is John Thell and my grandparents are John Thell and Katherina Fichtinger. I have been doing family research off and on for over fifty years having started in 1965 when I was stationed in Germany with the US Army. In 1966 I visited Apetlon and met some of my relatives who were living there. In 1980, I returned to Apetlon, with my parents, who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, as their tour guide, since they had never visited there before. I found that my grandfather John Thell was born to Martin Thell and Susana Tschida who were married 6 Mar 1848. I have a list of 13 children born to them of which eight survived to adulthood. Then recently I discovered that Martin Thell was born to Stephen Thell and Maria Tschida and had two possible siblings, Eva 1 Dec 1826 and Josephus 29 Jul 1829. I also found that Susana Tschida was born to Joanes Tschida and Maria Pitzel and have found five siblings. I do not have the birth or death dates of the four great-great grandparents or any other ancestors further back. I use the term birth date but realize that the dates are more than likely baptismal dates as recorded in the church records. Any information or lead as to where I may find more information would be greatly appreciated.

Martin married Maria Katherine Schneider (1848 - 1910). They had 9 children, Michael Tischler (1867 - 1902) being my great-great-grandfather. Martin worked as a cigar maker (presumably).

Michael Turnyanszki; Patterson, New York. GASPAR, Moschendorf (Nagysároslak). Brothers Frank and John both settled in northern New Jersey, while brother Paul settled in Pennsylvania. Religion: Roman Catholic. My grandfather, Frank Gaspar, who settled in Northern New Jersey (Passaic/Clifton/Nutley) is one of 13 children from the above listed village. He had a brother, Father John Gaspar, who was a longtime priest of St. Stephens Magyar Church also in Passaic, NJ. I came across an article mentioning my great uncle who I remember slightly and when I read that he came from a family of 13 children it aroused my curiousity. My parents and grandmother did not share much family history with us growing up and as was the custom did not speak their native languages at home - Hungarian, German and in my wife's case - Italian. So I was wondering how I can do some research and possibly get in contact with any other family members who remain in Europe or emigrated to the United States. The only other sibling I know of was my great uncle Paul who I met only once who settled in Pennsylvania - possibly Lancaster, Scranton, I just don't know any more. Thank you so very much for any assistance you maybe able to provide.

Leonardus Schweigl married Maria Lakner on 19 Feb 1865 in Oravicza Montanus. They had thirteen children there. From the marriage record I have learned that Leonardus came to Oravicza alone as a young man. His parents are listed as Leonardii Schweigl and Theresia Eschenlohn. Their home is listed as Mosoniun. A quick search of the 1812 Land Census showed that the family name Schweigl was in Burgenland and the family name Eschenlor was in the town of Moson. Can anyone help find them?

Located some of these names in cemetary in Woppendorf in 2004. Unfortunately, it was Sunday, everything closed and no one to ask except a Johan Deutsch who said an old lady Hafenscherer had just died recently. But she must have been in another cemetary, couldn't locate any Hafenscherer graves. Johan had a small winery/bar and we spent an hour with him but didn't learn anything further. He was the one who directed us to the cemetary (don't remember its name, but it was not the one connected to the church - that was all locked up. Alois Hafenscherer (son of Michael) shortened his name to Hafencher in America (arr 1907) - his brother and sister Andrew and Maria changed theirs to Hafenscher. I believe another brother Johann remained in Woppendorf at least till 1950's. Don't know if he married and/or had children Also found many names in cemetary that were familiar (family friends? in Chicago) Horvath, Kornfiend, etc. Believe a large part of Woppendorf relocated to Chicago area in early 1900's. Rosina Eberhardt came in 1910 and she married Alois there (my grandparents) I located Michael Hafenscherer (great grandfather)as living in Woppendorf in 1857 (from your sites housing list) and I believe he was married to Teresa Woppel. Anna Prangl was Michael's 2nd wife resulting in another Hafenscher branch here in US. My family is only branch with the spelling Hafencher. I've been unable to locate where Michael was born or buried. A lot of the same names (except of course Hafenscherer) show up in relation to Burg the small town next to Woppendorf.

E-mail Subject Line: With the increase of virus infected e-mail and high volume of SPAM (junk mail), entering "Burgenland Bunch" or "BB" somewhere in your e-mail subject will help us decide if we should open your e-mail message. Some volunteers also host other web sites and will not know which web site your are referring to if you don't. This also applies when writing e-mail to other volunteers and researchers listed on these pages. Send no graphics or attachments unless well known to the recipient.

Some older e-mail addresses and web links are obsolete! We have no way of updating these addresses unless YOU send US the updates. Two undelivered newsletters cause your automatic removal from the newsletter distribution list. It may take a while to get reinstated.
