- I am so excited. Recently someone saw my post about my grandparents
(Simsa/Schimscha). They very kindly looked at a web site in Vienna
that lists burial location of many Vienna residence. He/she found my
grandparents, and possibly, my greatgrandparents.
I e-mailed the administrator of Ottakring Cemetery, he replied very
quickly with additional info and sent a picture of the family grave.
I now have more names to research with birth and death dates (if only
I could speak/read German). With time and patience, I'm sure I will
gather more information on my grandparents.
Now, my questions: What are the burial customs of Vienna? From what I
have gathered, many people are buried in the same location. The last
e-mail I recieved from the administrator, list 10 names (I assuming in
the same burial location).
Thank you for your help,
Re: [AtGeVol] Simsa/SchimschaDena,
Could you provide the URL of the website you mentioned below? I’d love to be able to look up some relations I know lived in Vienna.
