    Hello everyone, thank you very much for building this website and keeping part of our history alive. I have recently been given my grandfather's passport and while searching the internet I came to this page. My grandfather emigrated from Apatin to Argentina in the year 1927, his name was Paul Ehmann, his parents Jakob Ehmann and Kata Tim (this may be subject to errors, given that the passport is in Cyrillic and cursive and I am barely learning Serbian). If anyone knows where I can get more information, I would appreciate it. Thanks

    My grandparents and mother were all born in Apatin and have since passed away. They were Nikolaus Kohler (B 1909), Magdalena Kranz (B 1913), Anna Kohler (B 1942). I'm trying to find geneology information - ie is there a family book available for Apatin? Also, my mother had a brother, Josef (?) who we believe died in the concentration camp. Would like to find his birth date and any other information.

    Hi, My great grandparents were born in Apatin: Jacob Anton Mayer b-26JUN1869 Apatin; d-24NOV1944 Dayton, OH USA and Klara J Leidecker b-27JAN1876 Apatin; d-21MAY1949 Dayton, OH USA. They emigrated to Lebanon, Pennsylvania USA around 1907 and eventually relocated to Dayton, OH around 1918. I am hoping you can help me find more information on my family. Anything would be helpful, from additional info on the family (I believe some of his brothers/sisters stayed in Apatin when he emmigrated, what it was like to live and work in the 1800s-1900s, etc.) Look forward to hearing back :)

    My ancestor Franz Wirges/Wirkes was a Donauschwaben born in Apatin in 1 august 1840. In 1897 he migrated to Brazil and lived in a settlement for German and Austrian immigrants in the the countryside. My family preserved the german culture and language during the next generations, but the last two generations miscegenated with other ethnicities of Brazil and the knowledge of the German language was lost.
    My ancestor Johann Conrad Wirges/Wirkes moved from Kirrlach, Baden, Germany to Apatin in 1769. He was father of Josef Wirges/Wirkes (1775-1855), Josef was father of Jakob Wirges/Wirkes (1796-??) and Jakob was father of Franz. I'd like to know more about the history of the Wirges/Wirkes family and if there are still any relatives in Apatin.

    My grandparents Franz Fuderer (born August 2 1890) and Magdalena Gaukler (born March 5 1893) in Apatin emigrated to the USA in 1913. I'm looking for any information on them and any relatives still in Apatin.

    I am a third generation member of the Apatiner Verein in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My grandparents are actually from Batsch Sentiwah, but our Apatiner Verein is a combination of members from both towns.
    I am actively involved in our Apatiner Verein as well in our Donauschwaben organization and cultures. I look forward to checking out your site often. My family from Sentiwan was Michael Tiesler who
    married Magdalena Mack and their childen were Eva Tiesler my mother, now Eva Artmann, and my uncle Frank Tiesler. They came to America in 1951. My grandmother lived until December 2012 and passed
    away at the age of 99. We think she was the oldest person that lived at that time from her home town. We were so proud to have five generations represented at the time of her death.

    I am happy to reach your site. My paternal grandfather (Martin Schaub) and grandmother Anna (nee Szabo) lived in a houseboat on the Danube, according to my father, Frank Joseph Schaub. Frank was born
    in USA and his older siblings in Hungary.

    My father, Frank, was born in Apatin in 1909 a son of Stefan Engel and Theresa Schariri. Excited about this website since I am trying to learn all about the families that I can. Dad, his mother and
    two brothers came to the United States in 1913 and settled in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Again, thank you for your efforts!
