To anyone researching their family roots of ethnic German background in former Austria-Hungary territories, consider the Danube Swabian / Donauschwaben. I invite you to check out the Donauschwaben Villages' Helping Hands (DVHH) Project http://www.dvhh.org, a volunteer project for researchers of Danube Swabian Heritage. We are celebrating our 4th year online, providing a wealth of information for you to utilize.

We also have a worldwide mailing list "DONAUSCHWABEN-VILLAGES-L"

Topic: (DVHH) is a bilingual English-German mailing list for anyone with an interest in the former Danube Swabian (ethnic German) villages situated in the six regions which were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918: Banat, Batschka, Hungarian Highlands, Sathmar, Swabian Turkey, Syrmia & Slavonia. (these regions are today in parts of Hungary, Romania, Croatia and Yugoslavia (Serbia).

We help researchers discover their Danube Swabian ancestral roots, history, environs, culture and lifestyle. We encourage our list members to ask questions and share discoveries. If you are new at researching, you will learn quite a bit about your heritage on our list. And we may learn something new from you.

This mail list is associated with the DVHH online project. Read more about joining our mail list:

Happy Hunting,
