Surnames: Maria Kumitz Parish, Grill, Pichlemeyer
I have some very poor copies of what appears to be baptismal
certificates with the stamp of Maria Kumitz Parish on them.
Can anyone out there help me fine the location and address of such a parish in Austria?

Maria Lankowitz?

Could you send me a scan of the documents or of the parish stamps on them? There is a town called Maria Lankowitz in Western Styria, and there is a village called Kumpitz in Carinthia. However, I believe the best prospect to identify the place would be if you send me scans or hardcopies. If you prefer the latter, I'd be glad to give you my postal address. Please let me know by a direct e-mail.

Initially, I tried to send you the message of above directly. Unfortunately, something is wrong with the e-mail address you used in the posting. Let's see whether you return to this board.

Surnames: Kumitz
"Maria Kumitz" is a very popular marian-church belonging to the village "Bad Mitterndorf". The next town ist "Bad Aussee". The next villages are named "Tauplitz" and "Pichl-Kainisch". This region is called "Salzkammergut" and lies in the northern part of Styria. It has nothing to do with Maria Lankowitz, which is about 150 kilometers away.
The address of the office of the church:
R. k. Pfarramt
A-8983 Bad Mitterndorf
Austria.
Yours sincerely
from Styria
Mrs. Seebacher

I some how missed your reply. I have looked at the bulletin board several times. But no, the church I am looking for is Maria Kumitz. Mrs. Seebacher has provided me with the correct location, I believe. As the Grill family docked in New York, the location they reported that they were from was Kainisch, Austria. Sorry about the incorrect e-mail address. Thanks for your interest and effort to help me. Dan Hall

But Ms. Seebacher already pointed you to the village of Pichl-Kainisch. What more do you need? Pichl-Kainisch lies just between Bad Mitterndorf and Bad Aussee.

Mrs. Lankowitz. My father Yohanns Rucker was born in Steienmark in May 16, 1893. He emmigrated to Mexico in 1930 - 1936. I don't know much about his family, my mother Mexican citizen didn't give much information about my father's family, just a vague intell. My father, father's name was Franz and his mom was Helen. Had siblings, but my mom told only one name- Victor. My father never went back to Austria and I would like to know if he left relatives in his country. You can also post information in my facebook page. Thank you so much for your time.

there is no Mrs. Lankowitz. Maria Lankowitz is a placename. :)
for Styria you need a placename also to find the records you need in the parish-church. for this you can ask at diocesan-archive Graz, but without a placename they can do no research. so do you know WHERE he was born?

austrian phonebook has 63 hits for Rucker in Styria/Steiermark in 10 districts. so you know why you need a placename to find the correct entry in the church-book.
Graz (Stadt) (22)
Graz-Umgebung (16)
Deutschlandsberg (8)
Voitsberg (6)
Murtal, Judenburg / Knittelfeld (3)

I thank you for your time of answering my message, but I don't understand quiet well the placename? The only information I have is my father's passport - reisepass. Serie - A #484,855-73/77-36. It says in his passport that he was born in Graz, but I don't know the district, or street name or number. Ort und datum der geburt Graz May 16, 1893 is all I have. Please,help to me to get in contact with the right source. I don't speak German, all was in his passport.

now, when he is born in Graz directly you can state this to the diocesan-archive and you can ask in english. we learn it at school in Austria :). think they will find Johannes Rucker born 16.5.1893 in their Graz-files. tell them also this details > "My father, father's name was Franz and his mom was Helen. Had siblings, but my mom told only one name- Victor".: http://www.katholische-kirche-steiermark.at/dioezese/ordinar...

maybe you tell us, if you got helpful info, so you can make more research to more other ancestors after that. if you know then the parish-church or so.....

there is also possibility, that you have relatives in Graz directly:

or in Graz/Umgebung (surrounding):
