|The Province of Burgenland, in the south east of Austria, was formed from parts of the Hungarian counties (Megye) of Vas, Sopron and Moson following WWI . While it is Austria's youngest province, it can claim to be one of the oldest. It has a fascinating history worthy of being studied in detail. The population comprises people of mainly Germanic, Croatian and Hungarian descent. During the late 1800's through the 1950's, many inhabitants emigrated to the United States, Canada, South America and elsewhere. Our primary purpose is to develop genealogical data concerning those emigrants. We can help locate Burgenland villages through their Hungarian, German, and Croatian names, identify parishes and location of municipal offices, and identify available church and civil records. We publish family names and data appearing in old records and items and articles of Burgenland historical and cultural interest in our monthly email newsletter. We link researchers through an email network. We are also actively engaged in uncovering records available for genealogical research. Through the Burgenland Bunch Homepage, you can hyperlink to many other related sites. |
