SCHEIDL b. in Vienna 1873, moved to Bolivia 1896

I am trying to find information on Juan Scheidl who was born in Vienna, Wein, Austria in 1873 and immigrated to Santa Cruz, Bolivia in 1896 to work for the German company Zeller, Villinger, & Cia. He married, had children & died in Bolivia. I have the info on his wife and children...am looking for info and specifics of Juan's birth and his parents/siblings. His name must have changed when in Bolivia...could have been something like Johann or Hans. Has anyone out there heard of a SCHEIDL in their ancestry who immigrated to Bolivia?

Hello, I am son of Herbert Julius Scheidl (b.1910 and moved to Argentina as child), my grandfather Julius Scheidl (moved to USA, Montana), both born in Vienna. I assume Julius was a relative from Juan. In fact, my oldest son is named Juan Guillermo Scheidl.
Regards, Willi

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.
