Schwarzthal, Bukowina (now Vadul Negrilesei, Romania) was a small village on the southern edge of the easternmost crownland of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It was settled by German-Bohemians on the 22nd of June, 1841. The villages of Bori and Lichtenberg had been founded earlier by German-Bohemians from the Prachin District in Bohemia. This inspired other settlers from the Pisek District to emigrate to Bukowina to also settle new villages. On August 25, 1838, the following 28 men signed a protocol stating their intention to found a new settlement according to the previous protocols for Bori and Lichtenberg;

Peter AUGUSTIN, Simon Baierle (BAYERLE), Andreas BAUMGARTNER, Sebastian Baumgarten (BAUMGARTNER), George BEER, George Beinhauser (BERNHAUSER), Johann BINDER, Franz Brand (BRANDL), Lorenz BRÖDEL, Franz DENK, Wenzel FATASZEK, Ambros HOFMANN, Wenzel KISLINGER, Wenzel Kibek (KÜBECK), Filip MAIDEL, Josef Pilsner (PILSEL), Johann PRESER, Joseph PRIXEL, Adam RAPP, Valdin SCHUG, Franz SCHUSTER, Michael SCHUSTER, Wolfgang SEIDL, Josef Tauschach (TAUSCHEK), Franz WEBER (1), Franz WEBER (2), Laurenz WEBER, Karl WUDY.

On the 22th of June, 1841, approval was given to found the village of Schwarzthal. The names of the actual settlers is not known, but the tax records of 1856 show the following households in Schwarzthal:

Johann ANGER, Josef BAAR, Simon BAIERL (BAYERLE), Georg BEER, Martin BENNER (BÖNA), Josef BERNHAUSER, Bernhardt BINDER, Josef BINDER, Peter BINDER, Procob BINDER, Georg BRANDL, Georg EISCHPERA (VISPER), Wenzel FLEISNER, Ignatz FRIESCH, Franz FUCHS, Johann GRASSEL (KRASSEL), Franz GROSS, Josef HASENÖHRL, Anton HOFFMANN, Ambros HOFFMANN, Andreas JUNG, Josef KLOSTERMANN, Johann KNAUS, Wenzel KÜBECK, Josef PILSEL, Michel SCHAFFHAUSER, Wenzel SCHAFFHAUSER, Johann SEEMANN, Jakob TAUSCHER, Johann TAUSCHER, Josef TAUSCHER, Wenzel TAUSCHER (Father), Wenzel TAUSCHER (Son), Josef WEBER, Lorenz WEBER, Jacob WENDLING, Georg WINTER, Karl WUDI

In November 1940, the people of Schwarzthal were removed to Greater Germany. At that time, the households included the following family names:

BAYERL, BEER, BERDICH, BERNHAUSER, BINDER, BISIAK, BRANDL, BRODNER, FLEISSNER, FRISCH, FUCHS, GUMINA, HASENÖHRL, HEHN, HOFFMANN, ILK, JEREMIAS, JUNG, JWORTCZUK, KLOSTERMANN, KNAUS, KRASSEL, KÜBECK, MAYER, PETRITSCH, PILSEL, PODRICYINSKI, RANKL, SCHAFFHAUSER, SEEMANN, SEIBEL, SEIDEL, SELLNER, STULIAC, TAUSCHER, UNGARIN, WEBER, WINTER, WUDI

 


It is my goal to research the ancestry and descendants of ALL of the original settlers of Schwarzthal and any who lived in Schwarzthal up until the time of the 1940 re-settlement to Greater Germany. Any information leading to this goal would be greatly appreciated.
