Donauschwaben- Villages-L Mailing List

Welcome and greetings from the DVHH Team
of the Donauschwaben Villages' Helping Hands Project!

A bilingual English-German mailing list for anyone with a genealogical interest of the former Danube Swabian Villages situated in the six Donauschwaben regions of what was until 1918 the Austro-Hungarian Empire: Swabian Turkey, Banat, Batschka, Syrmien, Slavonia and Bosnia.

The DVHH is a volunteer project assisting researchers of Danube Swabian Heritage, to learn more about their ancestral villages and provide a repository of information specific to Danube Swabian Culture and Lifestyle. 

We encourage our mailing list members to utilize the DVHH Mailing List to discuss relevant research, ask questions and share discoveries.  

Please take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with our Posting Guidelines before subscribing:

Posting Guidelines:

Neither public nor private posts that are disrespectful to another subscriber (i.e., flames) will be tolerated. Violation of this may result in your immediate removal from the list. We hope our members will be polite and courteous at all times. The most important key on your keyboard is the DELETE key. If you don't like a message, delete it. Responses posted for the sole purpose of demeaning or "slamming" another subscriber's opinion or remarks aren't appreciated by anyone. If you have a legitimate complaint about someone, send a message to our List Administrator.  We are here to share, learn and discover together.

Subject lines:

Please use a title on the subject line to summarize your message. A relative subject line makes searching or browsing through the threaded Donauschwaben Villages Mailing List Archives much easier. We also ask that you not change the subject line in your response to other's postings so that related messages remain together in the Archives.

The Donauschwaben Villages Mailing List is governed by the
Acceptable Use Policy.
