marriage record for Heinrich GOLDNER from Militärseelsorge, Vienna, Austria #austria-czech #general


I would like to find out more about the marriage of my grandparents at  "Militärseelsorge, Vienna, Austria" 
I can not find 
their marriage certificate, nor any military records for my Grandfather.
Any reference that I can find seem to indicate this is a Catholic institution.
I believe that my Grandfather was in the army as I have a photo of himself and his brothers(L-R  Paul,Franz,Heinrich) which I have attached.
Any information to clarify his rank etc would also be appreciated
Thank you

According to, Heinrich and Risa had two children: Lucie, b. 21 Jan 1918, Peter Herbert, b. 17 Nov 1920. The couple was Jewish since the births of the children are recorded at the Jewish registries at the Vienna Kehillah. The originals are held at the Archives of the Vienna Kehillah:
The archives can only do limited searches.
Scans of the record are held at FamilySearch and can be consulted at a family history center or an affiliate library. Familysearch has not indexed these records, only Genteam.
Regarding the marriage, pastoral services at the Austro-Hugarian Army included rabbinical services. The marriage is also recorded at the Kehillah in addition to Pastoral Services.
In any case, it would be wise to request the Vienna residents registration card at:
You can request the record online, but it will be sent to you within two months, cost: EUR35 to EUR140.
You should ask for the record of Heinrich Goldner as the head of household, records are per household.

The Vienna Kehillah has also the Militärseelsorge records:
Trauungsbücher der k.u.k. israelitischen Militärseelsorge in Wien, 1915 – 1919
This is probably the source of the entry for your grandfather at Genteam. 
At Familysearch there are only microfilms:

The Militärseelsorge is the military chaplain. It would appear from Andreas Schwab's post that they were married by a Jewish military chaplain.
