BANAT VILLAGE NAMES

Beta Version 13 July 1996

Last update: 17 May 1996 by Franz Quint with assistance (others listed below)
Letzte Ueberarbeitung: 17. Mai 1996


Note by Franz: Declination marks, like Umlauts, do not survive electronic transmission and transcription into a word processor, so are left off of this list. After 1990, Romanian ortography has changed for the vowel ^i: in many cases (but not in all) it is now spelled ^a (like it was before 1950 or so). In this list, mainly the ortography before 1990 (i.e. with ^i like in Fintinele is used). In some newer maps some of the names may be spelled with ^a (i.e. Fantanele). However, since the declination marks are not included in this list, if you don't know the town's name and its pronounciation, it may be hard to find the correspondences.

The symbol " * " following a village name indicates that the town is listed by this name in the Family History Library (Catalog) Locality Search:

Translation of the words used most frequently in village names (but, this does not mean if, for example, the German version contains "klein" the Hungarian will always contain "kis")

(Webmaster note: This is how Franz sent this small table:)
German Rumanian Serbian Hungarian English
alt vechi/veche o old
burg cetate var burg
deutsch german nemet(s) German
dorf sat falva village
gross mare nagy large
haus casa haza house
klein mic(a) kis small
neu nou/noua (uj)? new
sankt sin/san szent saint

Webmaster note: Would the above table be more useful in this kind of format?
German.....Rumanian/Serbian.....Hungarian.....English


alt......................vechi/veche........o......................old
burg..................cetate..................var..................burg
deutsch..............german...............nemet(s)..........German
dorf...................sat......................falva................village
gross.................mare...................nagy................large
haus..................casa....................haza................house
klein.................mic(a)..................kis...................small
neu...................nou/noua.............(uj)?.................new
sankt.................sin/san................szent................saint

If so, Franz: please confirm or suggest modifications to it so the table is an accurate description of what you are trying to say.

If not, I have no problem in reverting to the above table.
