      spoke of her dad and what she knew about his family and emigration.
      She's been gone for 40 years now, and my memory is so shot full of
      holes, not only do I NOT remember things, but even remember things
      that never happened!!!! heheh

      Diane ,

      Bela means 'white' and crkva means 'church' in Serbian language.

      Bela Crkva was located 46 miles east of Beograd (Belgrade) and 38
      miles east of Pantschowa/Pancsova/Pacevo, Serbia and is at the current
      border with Romania.

      Transylvania to Romania.

      Romanian is not a Slavic language but a Romance language like
      French andbItalian.

      There were 3 million Germans living in Yugoslavia after WW II.
      Many were Donauschwabens who had been there for hundreds of years.
      The Communist Yugoslavs under Marshal Tito expelled them all back to
      Germany and executed some.
      Many Donauschwabens fled for their lives back to Germany.
