Peter Bakos asks: So the next question is, which of these are indexed
in the computerized register? Only the Zentralfriedhof, or the
others?

Peter and newcomers - please go to:

http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=de German
http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en English

Choose the cemetery/Friedhof in the drop-down menu - you will see
very many.

The Doblinger cemetery and Crematorium [Feuerhalle, Simmering], ZF
Gates 1 and others non-Jewish cemeteries in Vienna, Hietzing etc are
on a non-Jewish database [not as flexible for searching] but you may
well find family members there:

Please read this excellent section by Randy Schoenberg:
Beginner's Guide to Austrian-Jewish Genealogy

http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ausguide.htm

and go to the cemeteries section.

If you search for some names [eg HOLLANDER with umlaut a], you will
need to use umlauts were necessary. Find, copy and paste one into the
name - that is the easiest method I find. Umlauts can be found dotted
around on the German version! With no umlauts you find no entries;
with umlaut *a* you find about 100. There are many tricks on these
databases.
