Feistritz an der Gail ancestors

Surnames: Abuja, Drumel, Nessman, Schuller, Schnabl
My maternal great-grandfather was Michael Schnabl (or Schnabel), was born in Feistritz an der Gail, Carinthia, Austria in 1866. Michael's father was Johann Schnabl and his mother was Helena Nessman, whose parents were Thomas and Agnes Nessman.

Michael Schnabl emigrated to West Milwaukee, WI about 1890. He and wife Catherine were married in Milwaukee in 1897. One of the witnesses to their marriage was Urban Abuja, whom I presume was most likely a friend and/or neighbor.

My grandmother, Mary Schnabl Schuller, was Michael and Catherine Schnabl's first child. At Mary's baptism, her godmother was Magdalena Drumel. I am told that Mrs. Magdalena Drumel was a lifelong friend and neighbor to my great-grandparents in West Milwaukee.

I don't recognize the particular individuals you have mentioned in your query, but was struck by the familiar last names. Are your ancestors from Feistritz an der Gail? There are quite a few Feistritz's throughout Austria and several within Karnten/Carinthia alone.

I am beginning my research in Austria and would like to know if anyone may know how to get Catholic church records in Carinthia. Or know anything more about the following people:

Frank Schuller, born in Feistritz an der Gail, 1868.
Helena Schnabl, mother to Johann Schnabl, grandmother to Michael Schnabl.
Helene Nessman.
Thomas Nessman.
Agnes Wiseck, married to Johann Schnabl.
