Can anyone help me find out what happened to Ludwig Matuschka son of Martin and Anna Matuschka. He was born 23rd of March 1863 in Australia but that is about all i can find about him.
Im guessing he stayed on Australia when his parents came to New Zealand. My other thought is he could have possibly died young.
any help would be great, Bindy

Hi Bindy

Have you traced this man who died in NZ?
1937/19790 Matuschka Louis aged 72Y
His age is only out by two years!!

The name Ludwig was often recorded as Louis in South Australia.

Marriage in NZ
1888/1013 Elizabeth Ann Whitton & Louis Matuschka

One birth registration gives both first names for Ludwig aka Louis.
1906/17732 Matuschka Amy Elizabeth parents Elizabeth & Louis Augusta

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I may have to look a little closer at those records as I saw the Louis Auguste entry also and on his head stone it is Louis Martin,somewhat confusing.
I think ill have to buy the documents. I have ordered his mothers death certificate so hopefully that will tell me the number of children she had. I have located 13 of them but as you said ludwig and Louis could be one in the same.

Bindy, Papers Past had a report dated 6 March 1937 of the death of Louis from a heart attack in his garden. It stated he was 73. So that means he died several weeks before his 74th birthday (with his birth year 1863). I'm absolutely certain this man was Ludwig.

Records for his siblings that I have seen.
2. Johanna Augusta MATUSCHKA b: 19 FEB 1865 d: 1958 NZ m. Gustav Adolf LINDNER
3. Frederick Adolf MATUSCHKA b: 1867 ALBURY NSW
4. Martin Ernst MATUSCHKA b: 1871 Albury NSW d: 1960 Corowa NSW
5. William Charles MATUSCHKA b: 1873 Albury NSW d: 1943 NZ
6. Edward Rheinold MATUSCHKA b: 1874 Albury NSW d: 1957 NZ
7. Mary MATUSCHKA b: 1879 NZ
8. Emma MATUSCHKA b: 1881 NZ m. Frederick Ernest Morris


My husband has a MATUSCHKA family connection in one of his 'trees' and they settled in western Victoria, and on looking up more about them I discovered there were two Martin MATUSCHKAs of a similar age who emigrated to Australia. Both had a a wife named Anna, and both had a father named Christian who were also of a similar age!

I think you maybe right as Johanna is sometimes Annie or Anna. I have ordered his death certificate information sheet today so im hoping it will have the info I need.
I came across the two lines of Matuschka when I started my research a few years ago so I ended up doing two trees it was more work but less confusing.
Edward Reynold/Reinhold (depending on what records you look at)was my great grandfather.

Surnames: Matuschka Matuska Matuschke
There are some similar surnames listed under "South Australian People", here:
http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=SHOW&...

Some may be a branch from the Matuschka family but spelled as "Matuska", "Matuschke" etc.
There is an amazing mix of German, Polish, Austrian, Hungarian, Czech & Croatian families in South Australia. There are also people who have changed their names from "foreign" sounding names to very ordinary common names, such as "Ephraitt" to "Clark"! There was a lot of this around the World Wars for obvious reasons because the "foreign" names attracted detention in camps for the duration of the war, just as with the Japanese in Canada. Bad times.
Hope you have found some good clues!
