Alexander Augustin Dragan Graz: Muenzgraben

Alexander Augustin Dragan Graz: Muenzgraben

My great grandfather, Alexander Augustin Dragan, is a difficult case for me. He was born 1 Sept 1866 in Graz to Maria Dragan, born about 1859. I think Dragan was Maria's married name, but her husband (a junior officer in the Austria-Hungarian army) was not the father of Alexander. Family rumor says that she had an unplanned pregnancy with some high ranking personage who could not marry her due to rank. So, she was married off quickly to Mr. Dragan. I have NO idea where to look for records -- part of the problem being that Austria-Hungary is no longer an Empire -- and who has the military records?

Graz is in Styria, not Salzburg.

Try to contact the parish Graz-Münzgraben for the baptism record: email: graz-muenzgraben@graz-seckau.at
or the Diözesanarchiv Graz: email: archiv@graz-seckau.at

And: Maria cannot be born in 1859.
