Attention Genealogists!Have you backed up your computer files?
If the answer is "no" - please do so today. When your computer crashes (and it will eventually), you will lose all your pictures and files. If you have a backup, you can recover those files. Make backups daily. Don't wait until it is too late.

History of this website:
Ruskauff-Freker website, designed by earlydues in 2002, had a visitor count of 3,263 when the site was discontinued in April 2010. The reason for closing the Ruskauff-Freker website was it was too much work to keep it updated. On March 4, 2006, I began a new site called "Auswanderer - from Bavaria, Bohemia and Bukovina" hosted at Google Pages. In 2008, Google Pages announced it would discontinue their free web page service. The visitor count was 1,382 when I moved my pages to Google Sites in August 2008.
This "Auswanderer - from Bavaria, Bohemia and Bukovina" website, hosted at Google Sites, was created August 11, 2008.
