Hi Frank,  It has been a while since I first heard from you
back in March.
I got your recent e-mail and saw Marie's post as well.  I
don't have
anything to add at this point to our last chain of
e-mail.(see one below).
Yours is the only contact that I have had from the
HOLLINGERs and as I mentioned previously I was not familiar
with the Banat
region at all.

One thing I can say on HOLLINGERs from France is that I have
connections that settled in Le Havre:

!Source:  HKH "HOLLINGER SAGAS" of 1955  Excerpts from our
first Historian's
Manuscript - Pastor Wilhelm (HOLLINGER) Page 20
"Court Clerk in Waldmohr Most of his children went to le
Havre and became
GEB Note:  Johann HOLLINGER (b 1759, [Eichelscheiderhof])
was the court
clerk in Waldmohr and "Pastor Wilhelm's" grandfather (or
great grandfather)
This would have been at the time of Napolean's Empire.  I
expect that
Johann, as a French official, decieded to go to France after
the Empire's
defeat in 1815.

My Great Great GrandmotherElizabeth HOLLINGER (b 1824,
Obermiesau), likely
stayed with her HOLLINGER connections in Le Havre in 1848 on
the way to her
uncle Ludwig HOLLINGER's {b 1788, Eichelscheiderhof) family
in Ontario.

Regards,   Glen Brunskill, Burlington, Ontario, Canada

PS  HKH is Henry Kline HOLLINGER (b 1897, PA, USA).  Pastor
HOLLINGER is likely a connection of mine born 1841,
Eichelscheiderhof or his
son Frederich Wilhelm HOLLINGER (b 1867, Gleishorbach).
is about 5 km east of Waldmohr, about the same south west of
Miesau and
maybe a little less north west of Lambsborn in the
Palatinate (Pfalz).
