MyHeritage Added Austrian and Eastern European Records

MyHeritage released new Austrian and Eastern European record collections. These two new record collections come from the Austrian Roman-Catholic church, and total to an addition of 10.7 million records.

The first collection is an index of records from a variety of communities around Austria-Hungary as well as Eastern Europe, covering modern-day Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Germany. The second collection focuses on Vienna, the capital of Austria, and some surrounding areas.

The collections include vital records – baptism, marriage, and burial records – covering a span of 4 centuries, from the 16th century to the 20th. The collections are invaluable for anyone seeking to learn more about their heritage from Austria and Eastern Europe.
