Research in Prussia and Austria
By Julia McIntyre
Many people have immigrant ancestors who left Prussia or Austria in the period from 1800 to 1900. The Prussian Empire and Austrian Empire covered vast portions of Europe, in areas now made up of dozens of different countries. Learn more about these big multinational regions to improve the chances of finding out where your family came from. You might be surprised to learn where your ancestors really lived.
 
Brief biography of our speaker Julia McIntyre
Julia Mathews McIntyre has been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. She has a degree in Electrical Engineering and was involved in engineering design and management during her professional life. After retirement she found that an analytical background was very helpful in genealogical research and analysis of records.
She has maternal ancestors from German-speaking countries who emigrated in the mid- to late-1800s. Her paternal ancestors from Ireland were part of the Famine Immigrants in the 1840-1850s, while her paternal ancestors from England came to the US before 1700. Most of her ancestors had very large families, offering unlimited opportunities for research.
Genealogy areas of special interest include Germany, Ireland, England, New England, the Midwest, and DNA.
