Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Records for Railway Station Chiefs in Galicia #galicia


Joan and Sam Kraus <jnskraus@...>
 

According to records in the Museum of Military History in Budapest,
my grandfather was promoted to Senior Lieutenant in the Royal
Hungarian Army and Police on May 1st, 1886. He had previously
served in the Imperial-Royal Austrian Army, but went to inactive
duty status in 1883, upon marrying.

In his file, in notes for 1886, he is described as being "railway
station chief in Galicia and in case of war he could be used in
that position".

I would like to know what community he was living in at that time.
Are there records available of railway employees in 1886? Which
communities in Galicia at that time had railway stations with
station chiefs?

I do not read or speak Hungarian. The research was performed by a
professional researcher, who copied and translated the results into
Englsh.

Thank you for any help.
