I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Consult the Austria Record Finder to find other records
  • Try viewing the original record to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc
  • If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality in an area search
