I can't be sure that it is my Georg Hirsch, but oh gosh it could fit! Maybe I can persuade my mother to ask my Oma if she recognises the names (she's not always receptive when I have questions, sadly). At the moment I just don't know enough to verify much at all. :(

Hi again!

Here's a list of the records for,1034436-50,1416836-50,1034442-50,1416948-50

But definetely get the original marriage record from the church! It may have you a lot of time in the long run when you research in Slovenia.

It looks like they will be putting up the images of the Vital records for Nove Mesto soon!

"Slovenia, Nove Mesto, vital records, 1881-1963"

Also I would hit these pages and see if you find them as children in the census for Rudolfswerth. If they gave their last residence as Rudolfswerth, Krain, Austria, I wonder if they are in the 1890 census?

Hello Stephen, I am already impressed with how much you have done already on Matthew Schust, and his family! Great sleauthing (-:

Did you see that he immigrated with a sister (most likely) named "Aloysia" in that Hamburg Passenger list. It's clearly your guy as he was headed to Brocton. But they seem to have an "Uncle" named "Weber" in Brooklyn.

Is St. Francis in Brocton a Catholic church? Did you ever contact the church for their marriage record? You can write them ( with a tiny donation) and ask for a photocopy. Many of the churches in those mining town listed places of birth and the correct spellings of their parents' names because they needed to publish banns in the old country churches in those days. I hope they send you the original ( and instead of a transcription).
