== What is in This Collection? ==
This collection includes feudal documents from many places throughout Upper and Lower Austria for the years 1537 to 1920. The documents pertain to legal matters, complaints, property, insolvencies, orphans, criminal proceedings, etc. All these things were later handled by the court system. This collection will continue to be updated as records are acquired. The original records are located in the Niederösterreichischen Landesarchiv, St. Pölten, and in the Oberösterreichischen Landesarchiv, Linz, Austria.
This collection includes feudal documents from many places throughout Upper and Lower Austria for the years 1537 to 1920. The documents pertain to legal matters, complaints, property, insolvencies, orphans, criminal proceedings, etc,--everything that was later handled by the court system. This collection will continue to be updated as records are acquired. The original records are located in the Niederösterreichischen Landesarchiv, St. Pölten, and in the Oberösterreichischen Landesarchiv, Linz, Austria.  Local jurisdictional authority in Austria was held by Seigneurs (lords) prior to 1848. Seigniorial authority was granted by the Emperor to individuals who reigned as lord over their manor (Herrschaft) within a given village or community. Civil records created within a manor are referred to as Herrschaft or Seigniorial records. The older Herrschaft records of the four Lower Austrian Kreisgerichte (KG) are stored at the Landesarchiv in St. Pölten. In 1848, a modern court system was implemented in Austria, and the Seigneurs were instructed to transfer all records needed to continue administration of justice to the recently established district courts (Bezirksgerichte). This generally included all Herrschaft records back to about 1750-1800. The earlier records, those that had been closed prior to 1750, were transferred to Kreisgerichte. However, a significant quantity of these records remain in private hands or have become a part of the archival collections of other institutions. Seigneurs created these records to record the events in the life of the people in their communities and to help in the administration of their manors. The information in these records is usually reliable but depends upon the reliability of the informant and the recorder of the record. === Image Visibility ==={{Image Visibility}}===Reading These Records===

=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images. Keep track of your research in a [[Use_Appropriate_Forms#Prepare_a_Research_Log | research log]].
 
== What Do I Do Next? ==
 
Whenever possible, view the original records to verify the information and to find additional information that might not be reported. These pieces of information can lead you to additional records and family members. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.
 
=== I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now? ===
 
*Use the age in the record to find an approximate birth year
*Use all the information to help you find other records such as birth, death, church and civil records such as censuses. These can help you find additional family members
*Use the surname to compile baptism entries for each child and sort them into families based on the names of the parents
*Repeat this process with additional family members found to find more generations of the family
 
=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
*Consult the [[Austria Record Finder]] to find other records
*Try viewing the original record to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc
*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality in an area search
*Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. *Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.html nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well.*Consult the [[Austria Record Finder]] to find other records == Known Issues With This Collection =Research Helps ={| width="320" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border=".5" style="float:right;font-size:8pt"| bgcolor="#fff3e7" | The following articles will help you in your research for your family in [[Image:Important.pngAustria Genealogy|60x60px|Important.pngAustria]] .| bgcolor="#fff3e7" style="vertical-align:top; line-height:125%; padding-top:8px" | '''Problems with this collection?'''<br>* [[https://familysearch.org/ask/salesforce/viewArticle?urlname=Austria-Seigniorial-Records-1537-1920-known-issues&lang=en See a list of known issues, workarounds, tips, restrictions, future fixes, news Research Tips and Strategies|Research Tips and other helpful information.Strategies]]|}For a full list of all known issues associated with this collection see the attached * [[https://familysearch.org/ask/salesforce/viewArticle?urlname=Austria-Seigniorial-Records-1537-1920-known-issues&lang=en articleRecord Finder].
