Hanisch family from Neustadt

Hanisch family from Neustadt

I’m looking for my great grandparents that called Johann Hanisch and Petronella Hanisch.
In the ship list says that they were from Neustadt, Austria but I tried to contact few “churchs” in Wiener Neustadt and they said they didn’t find any register of Johann or Petronella Hanisch (but I guess they don’t even tried to find ).

Please, could someone help me to discover if there was another Neustadt in Austria in 1890 – 1900?
Johann came to Brazil in 1893 and Petronella came in 1894 with 3 kids (Anna Hanisch, Johann Hanisch and Hermine Hanisch).

In other way, I think they could have lived in another city in Germany.

it will not have been GERMANY if stated Austria. some possibilities for former Neustadt in some former crownlands of Austrian-Hungarian Empire:

here from 2 present states mit maybe most possiblity:
Neustadt an der Waag: Nové Mesto nad Váhom
Kischützneustadt / Oberneustadel: Kysucké Nové Mesto
Slowakisch-Neustadt: Slovenské Nové Mesto

Tschechien/Czech Rep.:
Neustadt: Vestřev
Neustadt an der Mettau: Nové Město nad Metují
Neustadt an der Tafelfichte: Nové Město pod Smrkem
Neustadt an der Cidlina: Nové Město nad Cidlinou
Neustadt im Erzgebirge: Nové Město (Moldava)
Neustadtl: Nové Město na Moravě

2 towns of them in details - but it would be of help to know which one was really! too much work to look through all! also can be another state not only CZ and SK:
Nové Město nad Metují

Archives in Czech Republic - some online:

Nové Město nad Metují
3.5 Ostböhmischer Kreis:
