lands of the Habsburg Dual-Monarchie. In 1910, Vienna had a population of
about 2.1 Million inhabitants; at this time, Vienna was the 6th largest City
of the world! Nearly all familes have familiar connections in this City.
Between 1784 and 1900 aproximatly 8 Million children are born in Vienna.
Till today, no central birth register exists except the birth records of
the Jewish Community, which you can find at www.GenTeam.at
