The early 1900s gazetteer of Austria-Hungary

  The early 1900s gazetteer of Austria-Hungary

These pages provide the names found in the Gemeindelexikon, the multi-volume gazetteer of the Habsburg Empire published between 1903 and 1908. Based on the census of 1900 these volumes contain wealth of information about the K. u. K. Monarchy. The Kingdom of Hungary (with Croatia) and Bosnia-Herzegovina is not part of the series. If you are interested in Hungary you might check three other gazetteers from the same era: 1877, 1882 and 1913 gazetteers of Hungary. The 1877 (Dvorzsák) is available at BUY, as well: vol. 1 and vol. 2.

These books have been scanned and put into a digital collection by the Harold B. Lee University Library of Salt Lake City's Brigham Young University.

Knapco's insight:

Austro-Hungarian monarchy or k.u.k. Monarchy existed for 51 years until it dissolved on 31 October 1918 at the end of WWI. Its territory included nowadays Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, large parts of Serbia and Romania, and smaller parts of Italy, Montenegro, Poland and Ukraine. Villages and towns with Slovenian names can be found under IV. Steiermark, V. Kärnten, VI. Krain and VII. Österreichisch-illyrisches Küstenland : Triest, Görz und Gradiska, Istrien.

On-line queries in Slovenian Archive: ARS database

On-line queries in Slovenian Archive: ARS database | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

The Archive of the Republic of Slovenia has enabled online queries: simple full text search, field search, archive plan or descriptor search for different fields of documentary stock. Genealogy researchers are usually interested in history of land cadastral units on the territory of Slovenia. For example: a stock for Štajerska region in the period 1784-1790 (SI AS 1110 Jožefinski kataster za Štajersko, 1784-1790) or Koroška region (SI AS 1111 Jožefinski kataster za Koroško, 1784-1790), etc.

 

“Jožefinski kataster” is the first almost complete register of land units in the Slovenian territory, prepared by a territorial principle of tax or cadastral units. Land parcels were measured and registered in all provinces of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The language of the register is German. Together with the earlier Theresian register and later cadastral registers they can be used as a primary source for a period of few centuries.

 

Online search with more interface languages (Dutch, English, French, German and Italian) is offered by SIRAnet. The use of archive's material is organised at regional level (Contact information).
