Earl, My mothers maiden name is Kranawetter, she was born in Pilgersdorf, Austria. Her name is Anna, her fathers name is Franz and her mothers name is Johanna Ringhofer. My mother came to America in 1948. I have been trying to contact some of my family in Austria. Would like to know if you could help locate some of my family.

Hi Doris,

25 members of our America Kranawetter family visited Austria in July, 2001. What a great time we had. Our Kranawetter ancesters came from a little town of Neukematen, about 30 mile south of Linz. Our ancester, Theresia Kranawetter came to America in 1853, along with her small son, Joe Kranawetter. We were excited to meet many Austrian cousins, however none of the names in your email are familiar.

You cannot believe the emotions we felt, while worshiping in the same church that our ancesters left 150 years ago, and visiting the home place and seeing a wine press with the name of Mattias Kranawetter carved in it, along with a date of 1750. We met many Kranawetters in Austria, who said they were not related to us but they becaame very close to us and cried when we left. We have the family traced back to 1723.

Earl, I believe Pilgersdorf is located in the area where the Sound of Music was filmed. I will have to ask my mother. Her maiden name is Kranawetter. I believe it is located in lower Austria.

Sound of Music was made near Salzburg. This would be about 2 hours from Linz.

Earl, I just found your reply on the message board. My mother was the only Kranawetter who came to America from Austria. All her family is still in Austria and Germany. My mother has been back to visit, however she is 74 now and I would love to go over to Austria for a visit. She has a lot of information about her family. I would just like to research her parents side. I live in Florida, keep in touch.
