Info on World War One Austrian medical service #galicia #general


Steven
 

My paternal grandmother always told us that her mother, Rivka GRUBER, née FEINGOLD, was killed during World War One as a member of the medical corps. I assume with the Austrian army as they lived in Galicia, although, I’m not sure exactly which town Rivka lived in. My grandmother was born in a town called Delatyn and when she immigrated to New York around New Years 1907/08, she listed Lemberg as her residence. She was 17, so I assume she lived with her mother but not positive. Apparently, my grandmother went back to Galicia and then came back to the US in July of 1912 and then listed Delatyn as her last residence and her mother the closest relative from where she came. 
 
I have done extensive searches to try to find more info on Rivka but have come up empty. Would anyone have any ideas, suggestions, advice, etc. as to where I might find medical corps service, death, burial, etc. records for her? Anything? I haven’t even ever found any birth or marriage records for her.
 
Thank you,
Steve Buzil
