Volumes I & II

By Henry A. Fischer


After several years of research and writing “From Toleration to Expulsion” has just been published. It is a two volume set by Henry A. Fischer that provides all of the genealogical information that exists with regard to the families that lived in Ecseny, Somogy County in Hungary and its affiliated congregations in Hacs, Polany, Vamos, Somodor, Raksi and Toponar covering most of the period from 1784-1948.

It also contains information on the families that were expelled in 1948, those taken to forced labour in the Soviet Union, those who died in the First and Second World War, the families that migrated to Slavonia, the United States, Canada and Australia and biographical information and stories about individuals and families that played a special part in the life of the village.

There is an introductory portion of the book devoted to the history and life of the village and resources to further family searches. The book is being published on the 260th anniversary of the founding of the village. The set of books are available through and (the publisher). They are also available directly from the author.

By Lothar Renard

The new volumes are a continuation of the Familienbücher Vol. 1 and 2, published in 2005. The new books contain about 1,600 pages. The reader will now have an overview of his family from 1773-1900.

As a supplement, also included is a free DVD with a digitized edition of Vol. 1 and 2 of the Triebswetter Familienbuch, extended with about 120 pages, as well as the entire Kirchenmatrikeln (Triebswetter Church books) in digital form from 1773 to 1900.

The printing of family books costs several thousand Euros, and rely on advance payment of the pre-ordered books since family book authors are not able to do this from their own resources.

85 € for shipment to EU addresses;
105 € to addresses in the U.S. and Canada
The price includes shipping and fees (for both)
