I am searching for any information on Alois Pignet born in 1892, died November 7. 1964 in Feistrip by Drau (?) Austria. Wife's name Maria or Marie, adopted children's first names Hugo & Helli. Would especially appreciate information on a brother Frank Otto (?) that immigrated to the United States as a young boy.

Feistritz an der Drau is a community of Paternion:

for ancestors-research you can ask at diocesan-archive Klagenfurt:

site of the parish-church:
civil-rcords started in Austria 1938.

ellisisland-list for Pignet (looks to be a french name)- some listed from Carinthia also. i see some misspellings. as example at Andreas is written on passengerrecord Drenlach (not existing place) and on ship-manifest Hohenthurn which exists in Gail-valley:

Hohenthurn is not far away from Feistritz an der Gail!(not "an der Drau"):
the other place will be DREULACH a place between the both other places you see on map and it´s a community of Hohenthurn. all have misspelled variants for Dreulach in Kärnten/Carinthia in the list. not any to find for Feistritz an der Drau. are you sure for this - can it have been Feistritz an der Gail?
