Bach FAQ 76

 

Did the Bach Family Originally Come From Hungary?

 

So, the Bach family came from Hungary? Yes, they did. According to Johann Sebastian Bach. That is what he told about what his grandfather was told by his grandfather.

 

However, that doesn't mean, that the Bachs originally came from Hungary. There is just a probability of one percent, that the Bachs really immigrated from Hungary. That is to say, that generation for generation of this particular family was living in Hungary before. There's a probability of ten percent, that Veit actually is born in Hungary, but Veit's father probably emigrated from Thuringia to Hungary. Renate and I checked on the biggest probability and for us the best bet is the option that Veit's father left the country for religious reasons and came back with a family many years later for the same reason. If you read about Pressburg anywhere, forget it.

 

Bach + Hungary: That is either about the Johann Sebastian Bach stamp or about the genealogy of the Bach family of musicians. Regarding both subjects there is endless knowledge on the "Bach on Bach" project website.

 

The Hungary Bach stamp above is released in this Eastern country of Europe. That was in the year 1985, which is the 300th birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach.
