hello not sure if i have come to the right page but im researching my husbands family which has led me here. The Family name is Fingerneissl, i have found Josef Fingerneissl his great grandfathers birth in feb 1889 in upper austria but that is where it ends, im trying to find out his parents name. Please could anyone help me with this
The only other information I have is that josef's mother was called Elizabeth Fingerneissl and that Josef was born out of wedlock, I have found some Fingerneissl family in Alkoven but are unable to find the link to Elizabeth Fingerneissl. Josef left Austria in the early 1900's and settled in Eastbourne, England. On doing a google search under the name of Fingerneissl a farm house comes up in Austria, would anyone know why it would have been named this.
Hello fingaz! Currently there is only the index on Matricula. You'll have to wait for the online update or directly try and contact Landesarchiv Linz (http://www.landesarchiv-ooe.at/). Best regards Uschi
Josef Fingermeissl, born February 27th, 1889, suburb3, parish Eferding, illegitimate. father: not named mother: Maria Fingermeissl, legal daughter of Franz Fingermeissl and Maria nee Burgstaller.
you wrote, that your Josef´s mother was Elisabeth and not Maria - possible, that this birth record is not the record you search for. Possible is also, that this mother was a nee Maria Elisabeth Fingermeissl.
@ Uschi: Abseits der Digitalisierung gibt´s natürlich auch noch das Original, und das ist in der Pfarre.
just found Maria´s birth: parish Eferding, January 15th, 1869, suburb 58 father: Franz Fingermeißl mother: Purgstaller Maria, legal daughter of Mathias Purgstaller, weaver, from Lembach parish Niederwaldkirchen, and his wife Maria nee Schersching (?).
marriage between Franz Fingermeissl/Fingermeißl and Maria Purgstaller:
parish Eferding, October 26th, 1868 Franz Fingermeißl, * September 21st, 1842 parish Eferding, legal son of Josef and Barbara nee Salinger Maria Purgstaller, * June 21st, 1841 Trautendorf parish Niederwaldkirchen, legal daughter of Mathias and Maria nee Schesir ?
before we can continue, you should clarify, if this Josef found by Uschi is YOUR Josef.
