Subject: ACHTSCHIN, SATTLER, BRADAC
Surnames: ACHTSCHIN, SATTLER, BRADAC
Desperately searching for information about our father's family!
Leopold Alois ACHTSCHIN, born Chicago, 1911.
Father: Alois ACHTSCHIN, born Vienna 1874 parents unknown. emigrated to US in 1905. Another family group emigrated to US around WWII and americanized the spelling. We have no idea what that might be! Alois was supposed to have been an only child, but there were aunts, uncles and cousins. ACHTSCHIN may have been his mother's name.
Alois married Anna Marie SATTLER, born 1878 in Leibach, Austria (now Lubljana, Slovenia). Her parents were Martin SATTLER, born in St. Rupert, Austria and Anna BRADAC, born in Juzine, Austria. They were supposed to have been married over 75 years, according to a news clipping my aunt showed me.
Please - if you have any information about these families, email me as soon as you can!

Subject: Joseph PAARFUSSER and Rose MUNDIGLER
Looking for any information on Joseph PAARFUSSER and his wife Rose MUNDIGLER. They had a son, Frank (Franz), who was born in Austria in Nov. 1889. They immigrated to Sheboygan, WI in April 1892. My only hint on a town is a picture of Frank as a baby from a studio in Steyr. The archdiocese in Salzburg only lists information on Rose. Any other suggestions?

Subject: Feldkircher and Geiger from Egg, Vorarlberg
I am looking for any descendants of Leopold Feldkircher (1817-1868) and Maria Christina Geiger (1820-1870) from Vorarlberg, Austria.
Leopold and Maria were married on May 4, 1847, in Egg, Vorarlberg, Austria. They were Catholics.
Also, would anyone out there know the name and address of the Catholic church in Egg?
Does anyone have a current or past map for the City of Egg, Austria?
My great grandfather was Franz Josef Feldkircher, son of Leopold and Maria, who came to America in 1872 and died in Cleveland, Ohio in 1907. There are still relatives living somewhere in Vorarlberg, perhaps Egg or Bizau.
Is there anyone with a local directory who can do a surname search for FELDKIRCHER?

Subject: Staudinger of Hagelsberg
Our family surnames include Staudinger, supposedly of Austria. A greatgreat aunt, Theresa Staudinger Abel, said she was born in Hagelsberg, Austria, in 1877, and immigrated to the U. S. with her family in 1885. Her dad was Florian Staudinger. My goal now is to identify the location of Hagelsberg (which the Getty Thesaurus says is in Potsdam but not in Austria). I want to be on track with a Hagelsberg (in her memory) of 1885, when Austria per se covered much different territory than today. Is the Hagelsberg of Potsdam the town I am looking for? Thank you.

I'm trying to trace my family tree but am having little luck as most of my older elatives are dead.
I am told that my Great Grandfather, John Totin, came from Austria-Hungary in 1912 from a town named "Novo Tohovek". The spelling is probably all wrong!! I was told that the town name translated in English to "New Town" or something similar.
Do you know of a way I can try to locate this town or my ancestors from what was then Autria-Hugary?

Subject: John PENZER and Esther FORCEZ
I do not really know where to begin ... I have no solid information, and there is no family member available to pick their brain. I will tell you what I do know with any certainty; the rest will have to come from further digging ... once I know where to dig.
The surname is PENZER ... John Penzer and Esther Penzer. Esther's maiden name was FORCEZ. John & Esther, were my maternal grandparents. Their youngest daughter, Elsie Penzer, who was my mother, was born here in the United States. This however has yet to be substantiated as there does not seem to be a birth certificate for her. I do have a copy of my mother's marriage license which states that she (Elsie) was born in NYC and that her parents (John & Esther) were born in Austria. I am beginning to think that my mother was actually born in Austria too; or, perhaps was born in transit. I just do not know.
I am guessing that John & Esther emigrated from Austria sometime between 1910 and 1916. From where in Austria I do not know ... this is the gist of the problem. Austria is a big place; you would think that U. S. Immigration might have narrowed it down a little when they were asking questions of the new arrivals. Oh well ... what are you going to do? Work with what you have I suppose.
They (John & Esther) had no other children prior to my mother's birth. There are no records either prior to their emigration ... and precious little after. My mother (Elsie) spoke fluent Hungarian, or what she called Hungarian. Why would she speak Hungarian if she was of Austrian extraction? Am I barking up the wrong country?
All of that is the rest of the gist of the problem ... HELP!

LOOKING FOR ANY INFORMATION ON: OTTO GUNTHER MARKHOFF OR MAUTNER VON MARKHOFF BORN IN VIENNA AUSTRIA APPROX. 1907/08 OWNED A BREWERY IN VIENNA, WAS A BARON, MARRIED TO (WE THINK) HELENA.
The Mautner von Markhof (today Mautner-Markhof) is a very famous and, to
this day, very influential Austrian family.
I will verify your specific query about Otto Gunther and Helena later
this week and will send you details.
Just as background information: the actual name is "Mautner" -- which originally meant innkeeper -- but the family today has large and very diversified interest: real estate, food, etc. and there is even a member of parliament: Dr. h.c. Manfred Mautner Markhof
For the time being, see:
http://www.aeiou.at/aeiou.encyclop.m/m356687.htm and following pages. Also: http://www.parlinkom.gv.at/pd/pad/kb/kb01094.html If you do an Austrian Internet search: http://austria.intersearch.net/ on "Mautner Markhoff" you'll get hundreds of hits.

Subject: STRASKRABA (Vevoda z Richtarov?)
Surname STRASKRABA (Vevoda z Richtarov?), please help!
This message goes out to everyone who has ever heard about the surname Straskraba (usually with a "v" above the 2nd s).
Since I do not know much on my family*s history, I just can hope for your help. The earliest mentioned Straskraba I know is Josef Straskraba, who was born in 1879 in Mirovice (Morowitz) near Pisek in todays Czech Republic.
He had gone to Vienna latest 1904, when his son, my grandfather Josef Straskraba was born there (Wien-Meidling). As I saw on the statistics of 1930 there were only 17 "Germans" living in Mirovice, so I think there is the chance to find out more.
Have you heard about the "vevoda z Richtarov"? Furthermore on an old document I also saw the name "Csaja" mentioned, maybe the mother*s name of one of my ancestors.
I have also been told there had been ancestors in Marseille, France. But I do not know exactly, if that is right.
So PLEASE help me on my way to find out more about my roots.
Thank you in advance,
Laurent Straskraba from Linz, AUSTRIA
