- Hi everybody, my name is Susan Valenta and I'm just starting my Austrian
family search. My grandmother, Anna Cebisch, said she was born in Vienna.
I know her birthday was 12/1906. Her parents names were Anna Trondel/Trondl
(father Joseph) and Carl Cebisch. They emigrated when my grandmother was
about 9 months old. Carl had a sister in the US, Augusta Vucheggar but I
don't think there were any other relatives here. My grandmother told me
they owned/ran a tavern in Vienna and her father is listed as an architect
on his death cert. My question is, not if any of you know of them, but how
to actually start the search in Austria. I'm looking for hints, methods,
addresses, if the LDS has films. etc. I know I have to do the leg work
myself. Oh, they were Catholic, if that helps. Any suggestions
I am going to give you a web site I just discovered that looks like it
could help you in searching for ancestors in Vienna. The address is:
I have looked at it briefly and it looks loke a promising resource. If you
are just starting out doing your research you will want to work backwards.
The LDS Family History Library can supply immigration records that will
state where your family came from(i.e. place of birth etc.) but it will
take a lot of work on your part. Good luck.
