"Austria" Disambiguation

Austria may refer to:

  • The present-day country of Austria.
  • The Austrian Empire (1804-1867)
  • Austria-Hungary (1867-1918)

United States census records and arriving passenger lists often simply list the place of birth or origin as "Austria" meaning the Austrian Empire or Austria-Hungary. Careful research is needed to pinpoint the province and city/town.

To view a map showing the Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary with the associated provinces, click here.

Jewish Research resources on the FamilySearch Wiki are organized primarily by the present-day country, and not by the former designations. If possible, determine the city/town of origin and then search under its present-day country.
