WWI Austro-Hungarian army records

0 votes

Hi, anyone knows where I could find records of people killed in WWI? 

I am looking for more info about ancestor (from Czechoslovakia) killed circa 1918 at the Battle of the Piave River in Italy who fought for Austro-Hungarian army.

You can find some records on this site and they are still expanding the archive but I wonder if there is more sites to look into.


Thank you!

The German GenWiki has indexed the German lists of who died, and they are currently indexing the AustroHungarian lists. The database is constantly updated, maybe the indexing is already over. (The last time the homepage of the lists was updated was a year ago.) I don't know if there is an english speaking searching mask for that, but here is the link to the main page http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Verlustlisten_Erster_Weltkrieg/Projekt (The searching mask for Austro-Hungary is the one beside "(Österr.-Ungarische Verlustlisten 1. WK)." You might give it a try.

There are mechanical (OCR-based) indexes for the Verlustliste in multiple places, and there is an ongoing human-based indexing project on GenTeam.

State Archives of Austria's periodicals search: http://anno.onb.ac.at/anno-suche/#searchMode=complex&dateMode=period&from=1 -- type "Verlustliste" in the Title field, and the person's name in the Text field.

Digital State Library of Upper Austria: https://digi.landesbibliothek.at/viewer/searchadvanced/ -- choose "Title" and enter "Verlustliste" for one of the search fields.

Arcanum Digital Library: https://adtplus.arcanum.hu/hu/collection/MEVH_Veszteseglista/ -- you need a subscription to look at the images on ADT, but the search results give enough information to find the correct publication on one of the Austrian sites instead.

GenTeam: https://www.genteam.eu/ -- login required, but it's free. Once logged in, select Military from the list at the left, then choose "Casuality List". GenTeam only has the index, so you'll need to use one of the Austrian sites to look at actual images.

That's great,  thanks a lot for the links and description. Really helpful! I wasn't able to navigate much/ find anything in the first two links but the last two seem to be a great resource. I will look closer into them. Have a great day :)
