Since the Barkans Family comes from Latvia, this web site opens with a recent Postcard image from Riga.
Riga in ~2001
This Barkans Family Web Site consists of two main sections:
Services: barkans.net offers the following free services:
Meet the family - What family web site would be complete without a few personal home pages?
Yes you can have your own email address that ends in @barkans.net. For example sending mail to email@example.com actually sends mail to another address. In other words this isn't the same as a free email account (such as hotmail or yahoo), in that your messages are never stored on this server.
To use the service use the following steps.
Have an email account with storage. (ie a place to read and write your mail from). For example I have an email on hotmail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the form below enter the name you would like to have in front of @barkans.net. For example I used "anthony". Next enter the email address where you would like your barkans.net mail sent.
For example I would enter anthony as the name I want to use and email@example.com as my existing email address.
In my example when someone sends email to firstname.lastname@example.org, it shows up in my tbarkans account on hotmail. Of course they could still send email directly to my hotmail account and I would get it. In other words, I have two addresses for one email account.
Of course my outgoing mail from my hotmail account always shows up in other peoples inbox as coming from hotmail. This is true even when I reply to a message sent to email@example.com.
I may be a techie, but I think its cool to use a barkans.net email address instead of some (obviously) free hotmail address!
NOTE: Please allow up to 3 days for your mail to be forwarded from barkans.net
Yes you too can have a web page (or a link to an existing one) here! All you need is some tenuous connection to the Barkans Family.
Your page will be linked below, in the meet the family section. You can also give out the address directly (such as http://www.barkans.net/tony.htm) and let your friends by-pass this page. To have your home page hosted on this web site you can:
Make your own web page: The web master will accept word documents and jpeg images. If you would like to add a page and have questions about what to do or how to go about it, then either call me (Tony) or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Add a link to an existing page. For example if you have a home page on another site, you can send the link to email@example.com and the link will be added to the scary list below:
Now the Scary Part!!! Meet Some of the Family
NOTE: The indentations are used to mark the generations. Each set of kids is indented one level from their parents, and then listed from oldest down to youngest.
NOTE number 2: To add, delete or modify a name from the list please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
