Group Projects for Particular Towns or Parishes
Maria Becker, Larry R. Jensen, and Dr. Sophie Welisch are tracing all
the descendants of these colonists. Many other families in the Roman
Catholic parish of Gurahumora - which also includes the towns of Bukschoja,
Frassin, Paltinossa and Schwarzthal (and used to include Pojana Mikuli) -
are related to these lines. We have several thousand individuals descended
from these families in a PAF database, from the USA, Canada, Germany, Austria,
Romania, and Brazil. We will be glad to correspond with anyone related to
these families, and we plan to publish the results of our research in a book.
Here is a list of the original Bori colonists (not counting the family
members that accompanied them):
