Aida posted: "Has anyone heard of my uncle who left Vienna, Austria,
around 1936 and lived in Bolivia until his death c. 1990s? He lived in
Santa Cruz and Cochabamba... with his parents Markus and Helena...
Any hint about him or his family?"
Aida... I've always found that we family genealogists need to be
proactive to find our families.
First, I would suggest you register your surname on our Family Finder
(JGFF) so that folks can find you!! https://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/
Second, I'd suggest you email the other researchers who are looking for
SCHWAM >from Vienna...maybe one of them has more information.
Third... Query the discussion list archives for your surname and towns.
Fourth... Try Google for leads. You might begin with (Vienna + Jewish +
Schwam) (Bolivia + Jewish) and if that doesn't yield good sources, try
different varieties of the queries.
Fifth... Try the Viennese records at www.genteam.at and Vienna address
books at http://www.digital.wienbibliothek.at/nav/classification/2609
Sixth... Try familysearch.org forJewish registers >from 1984-1911 at
Seventh... Try the JDC archives at http://archives.jdc.org/
Hope this helps.
