Hi Jeremy,

If you go to the Bukovina Society of the Americas website, you can find information on how to order the book:
William Keel and Kurt Rein, ed., German Emigration from Bukovina to the Americas
Copyright 1996 by the Max Kade Center for German-American Studies, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas. This is a new and most definitive work on the German emigration from Bukovina to the New World. For more information, see the article in the December 1996 issue of The Bukovina Society of the Americas NEWSLETTER.
(300 pp, Paperback) ----- US $17.00

I don't live in Romania, but rather in San Diego, California. My own research concerns the Bukovina Hungarians, but there were many connections between the German and Hungarina ethnic communities in Bukovina.

Today, there are virtually no Germans or Hungarians left in what was once Bukovina; the German population was mostly resettled in Germany or German-controlled areas in 1940, and the Hungarians all left in 1941. Most of the Hungarians eventually settled in Tolna County, Hungary.

I do have a Hungarian researcher friend living in Tolna county who makes an annual trip to Bukovina.

The German settlers of Bukovina have been quite well documented, though most of the literature is in German. The church records of Illischestie are also available on LDS microfilm, which can be borrowed from your nearest LDS(Mormon)Family History Center.
