1900 census index numbers for Graz

Hi,
I am looking for some insight into the meaning of the numbers for the 1900 Census index of Graz, Austria. I have found Josip Zupancic listed with the numbers 11245 in the right hand column.

Could this mean I could use the first two numbers 11 to find him in the 1900 census of Graz on the LDS film for Band 10-12, then the next three numbers are 245. Is this a street address or a district or a page number? Most of the other index numbers were 4 or 5 digits long. I could not make out what the far right column heading over the numbers said exactly.

Someone who has used this index should know what these numbers mean to find the entry in the census.

Thanks for any assistance or insight for this census index.

Dale

have you ever asked at the diocesan-archive in Graz if they have them in their files?

No, I did not know the site existed, I do not see an English version, not sure how I should proceed next on it. I also posted on the Stier site after I realized I posted here.

You say Graz area, but where exactly did your family come from.

you can ask for ancestors-research at diocesan-archive Graz. you need to know a placename as example Graz directly or another village or town and a birth-date or so of an ancestor. you can ask in english, austrians learn it at school. you need no translation for the site, you can pick-up the e-mail-adress and write them:

I don't know my grandmother's village. My uncle only said she was from Graz, Austria. Her children have several spellings of her last name. In the 1910 U.S. Censues she state she is from "other coutry". I do know her father's first name was Valentine. I don't know if that was a common name. I was told they where wealthy, had vineyards and orchards. The family was Catholic.I will try the web site that was listed with various spellings of their last name. My g-grandfather was from Monsberg, Austria. Is there a source where I can write to for information on births in the Catholic church records for 1889?

you can ask at the diocesan-archive in Maribor(former Marburg) if they have your ggrandfather in there files(birth): http://www.mariborska-metropolija.si/ustanove/arhiv.php

did the ancestors have german or slovenian lastnames? the question is if they had german or slavic orgin.
