Request for suggestions as to where I can get documentary proof of my Jewish ancestry? #austria-czech


The factory in Brno was co-founded by my great-grandfather Paul Neumark. My grandfather was Austrian, and recent changes in Austrian law mean that I can potentially claim citizenship on the basis of my grandfather being the "persecuted ancestor" (my great-uncle committed suicide on the day of the National Socialist invasion ) and my father remembers the Gestapo arriving at the house to arrest his father on the same day. However, I have been told by the Austrian government researchers that this is only a "hint" of my Jewish background and that ideally documentation should be provided.  So far, I have not been able to provide this - any suggestions would be welcome.
