Hello,

I`m trying to connect to family in Hermannstadt, if there`s any left. All connection was lost during the last war.

My great grandmother lived in Hermannstadt all her life. I keep a picture of her, and her name was Emilie Sigerius. I don`t know much about her other than she married and took the name Schafferer. She divorced her husband after some years, wich must have been quite extraordinary at that time. I believe she married again some years after this.

Her father, my great great grandfather is supposed to have been mayor of Siebenbrgen, as my mother tells me - but it might just as well have been Hermannstadt - as we are both a little confused about the historic names etc. (It wasn`t untill recently I learned that Hermannstadt=Sibiu=Ardeal=Erdely, Siebenbrgen=Transylvania)His last name is all I know - Sigerius)

I know my great grandmother wrote a letter to my mother, her only grandchild, shortly before she died, asking her to come and visit. This was during world war two. My mother was of course unable to travel because of her young age and the circumstances at that time. I believe the old lady must have been somewhat disorientet.

If there`s anyone who can give a clue as to where I should start looking, I`d be thrilled:)

Strange, I found on this site recomended by Mr. Georg Schoenpflug von Gam the next quote: "
Er hat nicht wenig dazu beigetragen, unsere Empfindung fr die Schnheit der Heimat zu strken, in spteren Generationen zu wecken, und das soll
ihm nicht vergessen werden

Emil Sigerus "

Is it a conicidence of names? It looks very much like the name of the grandmother you are looking for.

BTW, it's just getting through my mind: Are you looking for a german grandmother who is supposed to have some houses in Sibiu? Wow, I would like one too!!!

@ Eva Schafferer

According to the list published in "Cronica orasului Sibiu" by Emil SIGERUS, there was no maire with that name in Sibiu.
The problem is that more people spell SIGERIUS, not SIGERUS.

I think that the tombstones from the Evangelic Cemetery of Sibiu would help. I saw some Sigerus names written there.

1. The Name of the Family is SIGERUS.
Follow the Link to see and download the Photos of Emil Sigerus(1854--1947), probably the Grand-Father (Grossvater) of Emilie Sigerus...(or better: Father!)...

Faceti cumva sa ajunga cumva stirile astea la cea interesata, Eva Schafferer.Nu am adresa email directa catre....Si istoria familiei Sigerus este si o particica de Istorie Culturala Transilvana...Teze de Doctorat la inceputul sec.XVI, la Wittenberg....Nu este chiar un lucru de toata ziua...Cu intentie n-am publicat mormanul de scrieri ale membrilor acestei familii...Numai cu Emil Sigerus as umple trei pagini pe putin...Si Muzeul cu Colectia lui le are acum Orasul! Merita un omagiu...
Am scris in germana, engleza mea e mai mult decat debila, iar din romaneste i-ar fi eventual mai greu sa gaseasca traducator in America...Dar Documentatia ramane bun castigat....Am avut ceva de lucru...

A? dori s? v? mul?umesc pentru toate informa?iile pe care le-au dat de mine. De la ultima am g?sit ambele meu str?bunic? Emilie ?i o rud? n Germania. Lui str?bunic? a fost sora de Emil Sigerus. Emilie lor a fost nepoata (fiica lui Julius, fratele lui Emil.)

Primarul s-au dovedit a fi Martin von Hochmeiser, ea "great grandfather".

Aceasta a fost o foarte rau de gramatica, dar l-am folosit Google traduc?tor ?i de speran??, este de n?eles!

Big mul?umesc tuturor!

Acum, c? l-am g?sit n sfr?it mi parola, am fost repede lectur? n forum de planificare ?i de o excursie la Sibiu, mpreun? cu mama mea.

Toate cele bune
Eva Schafferer
