In the History page you will find articles on the history of the Banat, the Banat Swabians and the village of Uihei / Neusiedel itself, as well as a list of the origins of the German inhabitants, plus articles on the deportation of our people to Russia in January 1945 and translations of books about the deportation of our people to the Bărăgan Steppes in June 1951. There is also a list of Uiheler businessmen and tradesmen in 1924/25.

Under Maps you will find eight different maps showing the location of Uihei in its various spellings, plus a bird's eye view of the village taken by satellite.

The Village plan page shows just that: a street plan of Uihei with all the householders' names (pre-1945) written in.

The Home Owners page gives a more legible list of the names given in the village plan, plus the three different house numbers each house had over the years, i.e. at the time of the founding of the village in 1844; then the pre Second World War era and finally the numbers allocated in 1950.

The Field plan drawn in 1925 shows the layout of the fields surrounding the village, and the various names the areas were given.

The Church page contains many photos of the church, both inside and out, plus three separate pages of pictures for the Stations of the Cross, various statues and paintings, and 'behind the scenes' pictures.

1931 film contains five pages of stills taken from the 4-minute-long film of the consecration of the church in 1931.

The School page describes how, where and by whom lessons were given in Uihei and also contains several pictures of the school as it looks today, plus an old postcard picture of the school and a group photograph taken in 1936 of all the schoolchildren at the time.

The Passenger Lists page contains information taken from the Ellis Island ships' passengers records of everyone who travelled from Uihei to America between 1899 and 1923 (i.e. those records available to date). There is also a separate page of images of the ships used by Uihei villagers to travel to America.

The Memories page contains various accounts written by people from Uihei about life in the village in the old days.

 Last years is a translation of an account written by Anton Zollner in 1998 about the founding and the gradual demise of the village of Uihei.

Looking back is the translation of an account of village life in Uihei written by Johann Schimmel in 1994.

The Cemetery page contains an alphabetical list of names found in Uihei cemetery, together with the row numbers where they can be found. There are also a few general pictures of the cemetery on this page (more can be found under the Photo gallery page).

Graves Left and Graves Right give all the details of every gravestone inscription in the cemetery, including names and dates and any additional information found at a later stage. There is also a page of portraits found on some gravestones - these can be seen in the Photo gallery page.

The War Memorial page shows several pictures of the war memorial in the cemetery taken over the years. Some show the original eagle on top of the memorial; another shows the replacement metal eagle when the original was taken away or stolen; the final picture shows how it looks today, with no eagle at all.

WW1 Heroes and WW2 Heroes are pages giving all the names and details of men who fell in both World Wars (including photos of some of the men), plus those who died during the deportation to Russia in January 1945 (74 people from Uihei were deported to Russia). The 15 people from Uihei who were deported to the Bărăgan Steppes in June 1951 all returned home safely a few years later.

2003 Reunion is a report on the 2003 Uihei / Neusiedel reunion held in Frankenthal in Germany in 2003, together with a few photos taken at the time.

2004 Diary is an illustrated diary of a trip to the Banat, including Uihei, made by a group of six of us in May 2004.

Photo gallery has several separate pages of photos taken around Uihei during the 20th Century and early 21st Century.

The Researchers page gives a list of people (mainly in America) who are researching their ancestors from Uihei.

Contacts is a page of useful names and addresses for all things pertaining to Uihei / Neusiedel.

The Lambing page gives details of at least ten generations of our Lambing line, going back to 1606 when they lived in northern France before moving to Bickenholz in Lothringen, and then migrating to Gross Jetscha in the Banat and finally settling in Uihei.

And finally, the E-mail page gives my two e-mail addresses, plus my postal address in England, U.K.  I hope you enjoy this website!
