Theresa,
There is a small point which might cause confusion. In your first message you say your relative was born in Vienna, Wein, Austria. This is a very common mistake so don't worry. The German name for Vienna is simply Wien, the French call it Vienne, the Spanish Viena - all the same place. The word "wein" actually means "wine" - they may drink plenty but haven't got round to naming the town that. Hope this helps a bit. Good luck in your searching.
