Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Ehrenburger records #austria-czech

Michael Gordy

In the portion of my family tree rooted in the Czech Republic, there
are a couple of people who received the honorary title "Ehrenburger"
from the Austria-Hungarian government in the late 1800s. Could
anyone clarify exactly what this signified? And is anyone aware of
records (probably in Vienna) of who was given this designation, when,
and for what achievements?
