what sources list siblings of deceased immigrants to Vienna? #austria-czech

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A relative of mine immigrated to Vienna >from Galicia between 1893 and 1904,
and died in Vienna in 1905. I know his name, date of death, date of burial,
where he is buried in Vienna, year of birth, parents' names, siblings names,
and an address in Vienna. Based on non-Viennese sources, I strongly suspect
that a person who remained in Galicia and died after him was a brother of
his, but my attempts to learn that person's parents' names or other
information linking the two have failed.

What Viennese sources might supply the names of siblings, nieces, or nephews
of this person? I am unfamiliar with Viennese sources, but gather >from the
SIG website that the Heraldic-Genealogical Society "Adler" might have death
notices with such information. Is the Magistrat der Stadt Wien the
appropriate place to inquire about wills? Are there any other sources I
should consult?

Thanks very much and best regards,

Logan, isn't it easier to look for the putative brother in Galicia
and see if his parents are listed, A birth record, for instance?

Or have I misunderstood (yet again)?

Yes, it is easier, but Galician sources I am aware of that might list the
brother's parents either do not or are not known to exist. This is why I am
turning to Vienna for answers.

Hello!

Write to the 'Stadt- und Landesarchiv Wien' benuetzersaal@...
http://www.wien.gv.at/ma08/

1. They have documents >from the local district courts since 1850.
If you know name/birth date/adress, they can look for the
'Todesfallsanzeige' (dead registration).
After the dead of a person the court and an advocat note all details
about family members, inheritance, income, last will, guardianship, aso.

After you have received this information (note postal adress, ask for
copies) start next mail: gregor.merkel@...

Ask for a 'Meldeauskunft' (restidence registration) for the siblings.
from 1910 onwards those registration forms should be available.
Give name(s)/birth date(s). Note that those persons are Jewish - no fee
will take place.
