Address Book for Czernowitz including its Suburbs – For the year 1909

This is the address book I discovered in May 2008 in the Vienna University Library, at the start of my Journey to the Bukowina.

Good things come to those who wait! Four months later and 21.338 entries further, the directories for Czernowitz (including the suburbs Horecza, Kaliczanka, Klokuczka, Manasteryska, Rosch), Radautz and Suczawa are now available for download as Excel files.

Sure, it's just a snapshot from 1909, but the listed names, addresses, and professions cast some light on the life of the people in the Bukowina before World War I. A treasure trove for genealogists, but not only for them, as the address book contains much more information than just addresses.

Edgar... Thank you ever so much! I just found my Grandfather and my Great Grandmother and another unlinked relative living at #6 Rennergasse in 1909. The first breakthrough I've had in many years.

I will publish the Czernowitz sheet to the website.

Desigr Cornel, cu multa placere, dar in nici intr-un caz manifestari antisemite sau nationaliste.

Edgar, in primul rand tin sa-ti multumesc pentru documentele postate.Asa am avut ocazia si emotia sa-mi regasesc doi stra-strabunici care au trait in Cernauti.Ai cumva si alte documente cu statistici in care sa vorbeasca despre familiile lor? inca odata mii de multumiri.
