BANAT Mailing List
Topic: A bilingual English-German mailing list for information on people who migrated eastward, primarily in the 1700s, from various former German States and settled lands in the Danube Basin of South-central Europe. These settlers, later referred to as Danube Swabians (in German Donauschwaben), lived in communities which are located today in Hungary, Romania, and countries of the former Federation of Yugoslavia. The focus of the list is genealogy, and history as it relates to the language, food, customs, culture, and lives of these unique peoples circa 1700 to the present. All historical areas of Danube Swabian habitation and culture are discussed on the list, and include former Austrian and Hungarian administrative regions known as Batschka, Bosnia, Sathmar, Schwäbische Türkei (Hungary), Slavonia, Syrmia, Vojvodina, and others.
