Heimatschein & Meldenzettle Vienna - Mermelstein/Friedler #austria-czech

The Joseph in District 13, that Steven refers to, is Hirsch's son. He was affiliated with an Orthodox Zionist group. Hirsch appears in the 1937 edition (possibly the year of his death).
I'm surprised by the districts because I  thought that Orthodox Jews lived in the 2nd district, this nicknamed "Matzah Island".
Thank you all for your help.

The Vienna address listings (Adolph Lehmann's allgemeiner Wohnungs-Anzeiger) for the period 1914 - 1917 has a Josef Mermelstein in the 13th District at Breitenseerstrasse 28. However, it has no one with that surname at Hahng., and no Hersch Mermelstein. This is strange, since, as shown by the Meldezettel found and posted by Johan Hammer, Hersch Mermelstein was clearly registered at Hahng. 12. Nevertheless, perhaps the Josef Mermelstein at Breitenseerstr. means something to Helen.

Hi,

 

Meldezettel can be obtained from the Archiv Wien whose website is www.archiv.wien.at . You can write to them at   post@... . Give the name of the person and the period you wish to cover. You will be sent a listing showing various dates and addresses should your ancestor have moved around as did mine. You can also request a specific Zettel  for any given location.

 

Please be aware that the Archiv charges for this service.

 

Regards

Hello Helen,
Meldezettel are archived in the Municipal and Provincial Archives of Vienna.
I took a quick look at the registration cards digitized by FamilySearch and was able to find a registration card for Hersch Mermelstein from the year 1917 (see attachment).
He lived at the address Hahngasse 12 with his wife Chaje and their children Josef, Lazar, Eva and Brincka.
You can also make a paid request to the archive, but you will not receive digital copies but only a text document with the data from the registration cards.
Kind regards,
Johann Hammer

Hello. I am looking for proof of residence for my maternal great grandparents; Hersch Mermelstein and Chaje (geb. Friedler) who resided at 12 Hahngasse in the
9th district in Vienna starting with 1914. Per family lore it was unusual for orthodox Jews to reside in that district & that my grandparents got special permission to do. I am seeking documented proof of residence which I believe is called either Heimatschein or Meldenzettle. Am I looking for the correct documents & if so, where or how could I get them?
Thank you in advance for any & all help that you can give me.
Sincerely,
Helen Kon
