Using following link, submit your surname (also try transliteration variant) and nothing else.There are many Washkau/Waschkau immigrating to States. Based on birth yr and place of destination, which ones belong to you? I can do a detailed look up for you, but a short term membership of your own w/Ancestry would provide an abundance of info.

As per map which Zlateca kindly provided you, the Austria your Immigrant Family emigrated from and the Austria today are very different places.

I see all Washkau/Waschkau of interest, list themselves as ethnic Germans. Some were Galizien Germans from Galicia Province > Austro-Hungarian Empire (what is Ukraine or SE Poland today) and some were coming from what was once called Moravia or Bohemia Province > Kingdom of Hungary > Austro-Hungarian Empire (today could be a variety of Eastern European countries).

Anyone coming from Vohlyn(skaya)/Wolin(ska) gubernia/region (as per this sub-forum) would have been emigrating from Tsarist Russia at turn of century. Today this would be NW Ukraine.
