Österreich, Oberösterreich, Linz Bürgerbücher

Record Description

This collection of citizen records includes the years 1658 to 1937.

This collection of citizen records for the city of Linz may give the name, residence, age, occupation, and tax information for each citizen. The text is handwritten in German. Some documents are written in ledger type format, others in narrative style. The collection also includes citizen land registers (burgerkataster), tax invoices (rechnungen), orphan books (waisenbuch), lists of proprietors (hauserverzeichnis), and certificates of family origin (heimatschein).

This collection has a variety of legal records, all relating to citizen records of residence status, property, taxes, heirs, etc. 

These records were created to track the identification, property, and taxes of all citizens and people applying for citizenship. 

Citizen records are reliable, but keep in mind that these do not have as much information as church and civil records. Use these records when vital information can’t be found elsewhere.

For a list of records by date or locality currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.

How to Use the Record

To browse this collection you will need to follow this series of links:
⇒ Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒ Select the “Item of Interest” which takes you to the images.

Indexes are available on some of these groups of images. If indexes are available, check these for the name first. Indexes are usually located at the beginning of a group of images or at the end. Find your ancestors name and look for the locator information next to the name (such as page, entry, or certificate number). This will help you find the record you are looking for in the collection.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
