St George in Bridgeport was a Lithuanian parish. Sadly it's now long gone, but it was very beautiful.

I was excited to stumble upon this forum and read the postings about St. George's. I've looked for photos for years unsuccessfully, but I have the Unger Book now and have copied the photos, but I don't know how to post them or if it's even possible. My grandparents were married there in 1911 and my dad was baptized and went to the grammar school until his father died. They were from Burgenland (St. Michael and Neuberg)

Interesting that we have Burgenlanders here. My paternal grandparents emigrated from Neumarkt-am-Tauchental, in kries Stadtschlaining, back in 1906. What's unusual is that except for family members, we grew up unaware of any other Burgenlanders in the Chicago area. I later found out about the Burgenlandishe Gemeinshaft and all, and discovered that most of the Burgenlanders lived in the Fuller Park area, and a lot of them emigrated during the troubled times after the First World War. My grandparents came over much earlier, originally lived on Bissell Street, then lived on Lowell Avenue for the rest of their lives. My dad was born in an apartment across the street from Kelvyn Park High School, and then my grandfather built a 2 flat on Lowell just south of Armitage Ave. in 1922. The family always went to St. Philomena Church on Cortland Street, and I believe they were even married there before they lived in the area. My great uncles all lived either in Hermosa, Cragin, or the Mont Clare area, and no mention was ever made of other Burgenlanders.

Just sent the photos to BillyFrank. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for the offer re Ancestry.com. I have it and brought back some family info from my recent trip but haven't had time to get to it yet. My family was strictly south side!! My grandmother's maiden name was Blaskovits (Croatian) and she was the one from Neurberg (Újhegy). Maybe I can take you up on your generous offer. You are probably familiar with the Burgenland Bunch group?
