Genealogists researching the multi-ethnic heritage of the Burgenland of Austria and adjoining areas of former West Hungary.

The Province of Burgenland, located in the southeast of Austria, was formed from parts of the Hungarian counties (Megye) of Vas, Sopron and Moson following WW-I. While it is Austria's youngest province, it can claim to be one of the oldest also, as it has a fascinating history worthy of being studied in detail. The population is comprised mainly of people of Germanic, Croatian and Hungarian descent. From the 1850'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 locations of municipal offices, and identify available church and civil records. In our monthly newsletter, we publish family names and data appearing in old records plus items and articles of Burgenland historical and cultural interest. We link researchers through an e-mail network. We engage actively in uncovering records available for genealogical research. Through the Burgenland Bunch Homepage, you can hyperlink to many other related sites. If your interest is the Burgenland, we can help you.
