Local family database Bösing, Grünau, Limbach, St. Georgen

North of the city today known as Bratislava, situated by the cliffs of the Western (or "Little") Carpathian mountains, there were a scattering of towns and smaller parishes which were home to a great number of German families, most of whom were wine growers.

Among these places were the following:
(German name)(Slovakian names)(Hungarian name)
GrünauGrinava, since 1947:MysleniceGrinád
LimbachHlinik, since 1957 once again LimbachLimpak
St. GeorgenSväty Jur, since 1960: Jur pri BratislaveSzentgyörgy

Due to a constant shifting of these parishes' bounds of jurisdiction, a complete historical picture of the families in the abovementioned places can only be portrayed through a database incorporating all of these places.

Below is a listing of "all" the available churchbooks in various archives.

The following online family data bank represents the beginning of a complete indexing of the chuchbooks of the German Lutheran Church in these places. The work has not been completed, but the amount of data collected up to now already justifies making it public.

In the meantime all marriages from 1783 to 1902 have been completely indexed. Information was assembled, and checked for errors, with the friendly support of Hannelore Billowitz, Ilse Grob, Hans-Martin Holleitner, Bill von Reichbauer and Bob Koch. In many cases information could be supplemented and made more complete via the already published index to the records at Ratzersdorf, and therefore a cross check is recommended.

The baptismal records 1783-1850 are completed, with the burial records serving as a reference where it seems necessary to establish a definite connection to one particular family.
