Review/Description: Gross Betschkerek was one of the larger towns in Banat. This Familienbuch compiles 19,205 families from its Catholic church records and adds almost 500 more listings of conversions and unattached individuals. Unusual for a Catholic Familienbuch, it also has a listing of Jewish burials and conversions. Also unusual is a list of people who left for Canada and the USA along with some of their passenger list details. It also includes maps, a history , and several lists and indices. This work is in German, although the lists are easily usable by English speakers.
