Re: BRAUN FAMILY, SZT. MARTON, ARAD, BANAT
Szentmárton/Arad-Szentmárton/Sanktmartin/Sânmartin or Sînmartin is now a village in ROMANIA.
During the Habsburg Empire and later Austro-Hungarian Empire it was part of the Kingdom of Hungary. Sanktmartin was populated (after the ottoman wars) by the so called "Donauschwaben" from 1724 to 1800. The official founding of the village was 1742 by Baron Franz von Haruckern. The old home of the Braun family from Santmartin was ALITZHEIM northwestern of Geroldshofen (Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany). Here you can buy a quite expensive familybook of Sanktmartin http://www.banatbooks.com/AradReview.htmhttp://www.banatbooks.com/AradReview.htm Familysearch has some stuff too: https://familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=localitydetails&subject=73301&subject_disp=Austria%2C+Banat%2C+Arad+Sankt+Martin&columns=*,0,0 Peter
