Putting leaves on the Branches part 1
During 2013 I managed to undertake some research into my AustroHungarian side of the family, all from the comfort of my sofa. My Aunt, +Sonia Waterfall , had been writing a book about Hulda Frankenbusch nee Kohn (my gt grandmother) and had sent me a link to Ed Zwieback's website. From here I used some of the sources he used and managed to research my tree further.
For the Austrian side of my family research I used FamilySearch and the records of Vienna's Jewish Community. Here I finally found the birth of Hulda's brother Felix
as we knew he had died during WWI of typhoid fever aged about 18years. I now have to find his death record.
Another website that I used was http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en: This is a cemetery database for the Jewish section of the Friedhof Cemetery in Vienna. I found the Huldas father, Rudolf is buried here, along with her mothers parents and some of her siblings.
Finally I have also been using http://anno.onb.ac.at/ and browsing through the Neue Freie Presse, I was able to find death announcements for the family. This is the announcement for Huldas grandfather, Zacharias Lowenstein.
