Geography of the Region

Südwestliches ungarisches Mittelgebirge is in present-day Hungary and includes Veszprém County.


History of the Region

The Central Hungarian Highlands had been re-populated by mostly German westerners by the end of the Austrian Empire's wars with the Ottoman Empire at the end of the 17th century. The colonization was initiated by the nobility and clerical landowners and survived the revolt of Rákóczi during the years 1703-11 to continue until approximately the middle of the next century. Some descendants of early colonists continued on to make migrations further east to the  Banat, the Batschka and other areas as these became accessible following Austrian conquest.

See Veszprém but so far available only in Hungarian.
