I have visited Vienna a number of times to find out information about my
parents and family who lived there before and during the War. I was able to
make contact with Frau H. Weiss, who was very helpful. Her e-mail is :
h.weiss@... Through her efforts I was able to find the cemetery
(Zentralfriedhiof) where my grandfather is buried. Hope this helps.

My brother-in-law will be visiting the cemetery at Modling bei Wien, once a
small town near Vienna, but now, we suspect, simply a suburb of Vienna.
Thanks to Celia Male's assistance, we have located the graves of his and my
wife's great-grandparents via the cemetery records, and he wishes to visit
the graves. I would appreciate it if anyone knows whether the cemetery is
locked, and if so, how does one obtain permission to enter? Is there a
contact organization or person in Vienna, as in several German cities, for
former residents, for example, to assist them during their visit, who could
help with this?
