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.
Good luck on your site. I have ancestors from Apatin. Member of the Trenton Donauschwaben.

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!
