Finding the Details in a Draft Registration Card

(click on image to enlarge)

The Draft Registration card for Martin Kollein is one of the few places where we see a place of birth for one of the Kollain/Kollein family members.  Although not specific to a town, it is slight improvement over the usual "Austria-Hungary" seen in other records.

That big-little hint may take you far in rearching your Austria-Hungary ancestors! Due to the wars and history, this can be a challenging research project.
