Mistelbach

Today we rediscovered where my maternal Grandma and her brother were born in Austria - Mistelbach!

Look at the map - it's so close to the Czech Republic (to the north) and Slovakia to the east. It's about 40kms from Vienna on the main route to Brno in the Czech Republic.

We have the address of what once was the family shoe factory. Looking at it on Google Earth it seems to be on the main street in town - and most of it seems to be a carpark now. 20 years ago it was a supermarket. I'm not sure what we'll find.

We also have details of the cemetery where my great grandparents are buried. It's in Mistelbach, on the outskirts of town. I can't believe we'll be there in a few weeks.
