Zichydorf Village Association (ZVA)
The Zichydorf Village Association is dedicated to preserving Zichydorf's history and re-connecting its families. ZVA also includes residents of Georghausen, also known in Hungarian as Gyögyhaza and in Serbian as Velika Greda. Georghausen was founded in 1849 a few kilometres away from Zichydorf because there was not enough vacant land available at Zichydorf for the descendants of the original settlers. Many of its first inhabitants were people from Zichydorf, but it also included new settlers from other areas.
A number of Zichydorf Village Association newsletters and considerable research material can be found at feefhs.org/zva/frg-zva.html
What is the Zichydorf Village Association?
Purpose: Gather, share, and preserve information about Zichydorf and the immediately surrounding area and the families whose history is associated.
1. Complete each individual member's family history.
2. Put these histories in context - pre-Zichydorf, Zichydorf, post-Zichydorf, relationships to other families, what became of those who stayed behind.
3. Create a legacy of information for future generations.
Objectives - methods of achieving goals:
1. Search out others with information about Zichydorf and families from Zichydorf.
We welcome all members, whether they pay dues or not. We value what each member can contribute to our common knowledge.
We hope, however, that you will also contribute financially. We suggest a one time contribution of $25 that goes to our library fund. We, in turn, contribute your donation to the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society (SGS) which purchases items we specify. Canadian residents will receive a tax receipt from the SGS for your charitable contribution.
In addition we ask that you pay an annual $10 to help operate the association. The operating funds support our Internet web site, our attendance at the SGS Family History Fair, newsletter printing and mailing, and the cost of searching for new members and information by mail.
If you are an e-mail member you may think that a contribution is not warranted because we do not use postage to serve you directly. Remember though that there is a cost to maintain our web site and that, through the mail, we may find people or information that is invaluable to you. We will gladly do all the work, but we hope you will help us carry the financial load.
