Group Projects for Particular Towns or Parishes


Bori and the Roman Catholic parish of Gurahumora

The village of Bori was colonized in 1835 by a group of Roman Catholic, German-Bohemians that emigrated from around the towns of Rehberg, Seewiesen, and Bergreichenstein in the Bohemian forest (now Srni, Javorna, and Kasperske Hory, in the Czech Republic). Today, Bori is part of the town of Gura Humorului, Suceava, Romania.

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. Please contact:
