This site is now known to most SEARCH engines.  We are adding more pages as time allows and invite visitors to submit Bukovina related content which is in concert with the aims of this website.

May 1, 2002  - is our new domain name.

We have moved our web pages to our new host, Netfirms, where we have an add-free site under our own domain name.  A lot of construction work remains and we hope to show continuing progress. 

April 2002  - NEW: Bukovina Society of the Americas Website

In early 1996, Larry Jensen, a member of our Society, took the initiative to pioneer a website for the Bukovina Society.  The initial website was at Larry's personal AOL account and shortly thereafter, a mirror site was created on the FEEFHS server.  Larry's efforts significantly increased the visibility of the Bukovina Society and attracted new members for the Society from around the world.  Thank you, Larry, for a job well done!

At the Bukovina Society convention meeting in Ellis, Kansas in August, 2000,  a committee was formed to expand and upgrade the website content.  Society members, Becky Hageman and Werner Zoglauer volunteered to work on the new website.  A development site at now hosts the new Bukovina Society Website.  We have discussed with FEEFHS the possibility of  including the Bukovina website on their server.  Depending on the resolution of some technical issues and workload scheduling, this may occur sometime in the future. 

Included on this new Website are documents (some updated) from the old website as well as new content.  Over time, we expect to add significantly more to the content.  In addition, we have added several new features to enhance the content and navigability of our new website. 

Currently, all of the contents from the old website have been moved to this new website.  However, a large amount of  construction work remains, primarily in areas requiring new content. 

We decided to make the new website publicly available before it is complete.  Individuals whose contact information needs to be updated on the [Genealogy & Contact-Listpage, should inform us with change requests.

We appreciate your patience while web construction is in process. 

Becky Hageman and Werner Zoglauer,
