Austria Hungary.info : Information about the Habsburg Monarchy

About 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 - see the links to individual volumes below (linking to the set is unfortunately not possible)..

My site is a spin-off of an upcoming database of mine that would cover Austria-Hungary during World War 1. I needed a list of places and their administrative affiliations and decided to use that gazetteer. After it had been typed in in January 2010 I got the idea to share it with the online community hoping that it could be used here and there. A more detailed index of place names and a search box might come up in Jan or Feb 2010. Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions.
