Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Tracing your Roots - BBC radio: Bohemia and Vienna>UK #austria-czech

The second programme of this BBC Radio series broadcast at
lunch time today {27 Aug 2008] was concerned with Jewish immigration
into the UK. I was most surprised to hear that three of the "cases"
were of descendants of families >from Bohemia and Vienna
- RABL; MAUSINGER/MALSINGER; HUTTMANN.

As this was radio, it was not possible to check the spelling.

I have checked RABL and they can be found as a single family in
the 1793 census of Bohemia [Tabaktrafikant] in Kardasch Retschitz,
Tabor Kreis [Vol III p 346]. The UK descendant {Nick Radcliffe/
Ratcliffe?] never knew his father, who died when he was a baby.

The other case concerned a MALSINGER/MAUSINGER family who were
catholics >from Bohemia but it was assumed they were Jewish. I have
not found them in the 1793 census and I think they may be barking
up the wrong tree.

Finally, there was the granddaughter of a Kindertransport family - HUTTMANN/HUTTMAN >from Vienna. Her grandparents perished and all
her uncles and aunts subsequently dispersed around the world.
I have noted three HUTTMAN{N} on Yad Vashem and on Doew.

You have only one week to listen >from today on Listen Again

Sadly, no-one mentioned the Austria-Czech SIG, where we could have
given a lot of help!
