Georgshausen 1941 Surname Index

This index was compiled by Glenn Schwartz from the list Die einstigen deutschen Bewohner des Dorfes in the book Verlorene Heimat Georghausen by Josef Wüst (Wuest/Wust). It lists residents of Georghausen households in 1941 along with years of birth and death and residence in 1991. The original German book is no longer available, however an authorized English translation, Lost Homeland Georgshausen, was released in 2008. Thanks to Henry Fischer for translating and Ray Borschowa and Barbara Hebenstreit (the author's daughter) for editing. A special thanks to Ray for the great care he put into the production of the book. To order the English book, contact Ray Borschowa at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Since Georgshausen was a daughter community of Zichydorf, the descendents of either village should find the book interesting, or anyone who is interested in reading about community life in a small village in the Banat. The author covers history, holiday celebrations, customs and community life quite well. The English edition has additional pages, pictures, and footnotes not included in the German edition.

There is a copy of the English edition in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. There is a copy of the German edition available for interlibrary loan from the Widener Library at Harvard University.

Here is a more detailed description of the list taken from the list preamble in the English version:

"What follows is a list of most of the families who lived in one of the houses in the village at Easter of 1941. The compilation of all of this information after the passing of some fifty years cannot be considered to be totally complete. Some families have totally died out, while we were unable to contact others.

At the very least, the birth year of every person is provided to help us identify whether we are referring to a child or an adult. Moreover, we have attempted to indicate what happened to each person and if they are living or dead. The place and year of death is provided, or the person's current place of residence is given.

On the basis of these dates, the individual fate of the former residents of the village can be determined to a certain extent. At the conclusion of this documentation we have included an empty page. Any necessary corrections can be noted there. A short history of individual families can also be entered there.

The following list of names and houses should be used in connection with the village plan map. Hans Herold compiled the list and Hans Loch drew the plan map, it shows every house in the village with a number. This is not identical with the actual house numbers. It simply serves to help in identifying the location of each house and the family who lived in it. It begins with the house of Georg Birg (the mill owner). This house is number 1. The house of Michael Dian on the Rarosch is the last and is number 157.

All of the dates are not necessarily guaranteed to be accurate. [b. = born, d. = died: Original list created in 1991, in this edition some dates have been changed or added as a result of having access to the Zichydorf church records and family sources.]"
