Dear Genres,

I have just received abt. 760 pages >from the Austrian MA 8 archives, hoping
to find relationships between my FRIEDMANN ancestors and their families.
In a 1891 hand written "Heeg & Friedmann" factory in Sternberg (now Sternberk),
Moravia announcement for a Vienna newspaper, I found several new names.
Unfortunately the quality of the document is poor, some names are hard to
decipher and their relationships are not identified. I have since searched
the Vienna cemetery database, added dates and some other names buried in the
same graves. It is also the first time I came across Szenitz, Hungary.
Perhaps someone knows something about these families or where Szenitz,
Hungary is or if the town still has the same name?

Heinrich FRIEDMANN Born: abt. 1823 in Szenitz, Hungary. Occupation:
Manufacturer. Married: in Prostejov/Prossnitz, Czech. Died: Mar 9, 1891

Note: In abt. 1850, the FRIEDMANN family started a "Textile" business in
Sternberg (now Sternberk), Moravia. In 1852, Anton Heeg, Ignatz Schottik and
Heinrich FRIEDMANN formed a firm named "Heeg, Schottik & Friedmann". In 1863
Johann Kuntner sold the "current post office" factory building to Anton Heeg
& Heinrich FRIEDMANN. In 1868 the partnership dissolved, Anton sold his
share to Heinrich and a new larger factory was built. Heinrich died in 1891,
Ludwig FRIEDMANN inherited the building and sold it in 1909. *In 1908,
Arthur FRIEDMANN (my great-grandfather) bought Ludwig's shares and became
the sole owner of "Heeg & Friedmann".
