Looking for ancestors? Want to know more about the origins of your name? You are confronted with other "historical" issues such as, for instance, when a bundle of old letters appears, that no one in the family can read or understand in their historical context?

This is, where Dr. Hermann Rafetseder – History Research offers its services, with professionality and reasonable conditions. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us directly

The picture above, taken in 1909, shows the family of my father's mother, Anna Danninger, later married Rafetseder (1890-1985, in this picture: in the middle of the second row). On the left in front row: my great-grandmother Aloisia Danninger (né Schauer), on the right in front row my great-grandfather Josef Danninger, plus several siblings (plus one son-in-law). There are interesting stories about all of them (now all deceased), some of that stories even told in old regional newspapers, which can be read online. That picture was obviously taken at the parent's silver wedding anniversary, celebrated on their farm in village Pösting, municipality Walding, Upper Austria.
