Perhaps you are related to the famous "Franz Eisenhut," artist and painter from Palanka, Batschka:

Here is a link to the DVHH (Donauschwaben Villages Helping Hands) Website, which has a page for Argentina and contains quite a few research aids:
There is another page for Brazil, but it has very limited information:
Unfortunately, our Coordinator for these regions recently resigned because of personal obligations. I believe we may have had some interest from another person to assist researchers in this area.
Are you very familiar with the Donauschwaben in general (Germans from Hungary)? You can read much, much more about the history of this ethnic group beginning at the main pages of the DVHH website.
I also invite you to join the DVHH-L, an active Rootsweb mail list for researchers of the Donauschwaben. We are a worldwide organization and I recommend that you join and post inquiries of your family members on the list. In addition to alerting others who may be studying your surnames or geographical areas of interest, your postings will be retained in the Rootsweb Archives, which are searched by thousands daily. You may be surprised with a message from a distant or not-so-distant relative who found you in the archives.
If you have any contributions of interest on Argentina or Brazil, or even family documents or letters, you can submit them to the DVHH for possible publication.
I hope this is helpful, and I will make some additional inquiries. The 1895 census and immigration databases look like a good place to start! You need to try to find the name of the town or village they came from -- this information will open more doors. Please stay in touch and let me know if you have research success!
DVHH Asst. Batschka Coordinator
