Henry Fischer compiled a lengthy list of early birth and marriage records
from the Roman Catholic Church records in Paks-on-the-Danube (a nearby village
to Bikacs). The list includes surnames he recognized as belonging to
the Heidebauren, including some records that involved people from Bikacs and the
neighboring village of Gyorkony.

Bikacs Records Available through the LDS...
source for researching your family history in Bikacs is to pour through the
church and civil records for the village. Thanks to the Church of Latter
Day Saints (LDS) in Utah, the films of these records are readily accessible to
The first step in starting this research is locating
and visiting your nearest
LDS Family History Center (FHC). At your local center, you will
request that microfilm copies of the Bikacs LDS records
be sent from Utah. (This assumes that your local FHC doesn't have
permanent copies which is probably the case.) There is a nominal charge of
approximately $3.00 U.S. for each film requested. Note that microfilm readers
are provided by the FHCs, and that the films are not permitted to leave the
facility. The Family History Centers are staffed with wonderful
volunteers from the LDS who can help you get started.

Connecting and Networking...
There are numerous websites on the Internet dedicated to helping researchers
network and connect. These sites have been invaluable for allowing distant cousins to find each
other across international borders. In addition, there are websites
devoted to Hungarian and Donauschwaben research, although none contain actual
records. With regard to Bikacs specifically though, this is the only
website I know of dedicated to this small village.
