Thank you very much for your support.

| They all wear a Dragoner (cavalry) uniform, actually a Dragoner Helm can be seen in front of the soldiers.
The only Dragoner unit that I know recruited Romanians was the Dragoner-Regiment „Erzherzog Albrecht“ Nr. 9 (50% Romanians).
Any info or stamps on the back of the photo?
What was the name, place and year of birth of your great-grandfather? Maybe I can find his name if he was wounded.

| Thank you for all the information. Very interesting.
The name of my great grand father was Giosan Alecsa (sometimes spelled Alexie or Alexa).
I don't know if he was wounded, I know he was a prisoner in the Tzarist Empire.
If you can help with any info about him, or any clues to go further with my genealogic researches, thank you very much.
Have a nice evening!

| I forgot the year of birth: 1886 in Ciocanesti, Bucovina (actualul judet Suceava).
There is nothing written on the back of the photo.
Thanks very much!

| I searched with Giosan, but I didn't find any Giosan Alecsa, just three wounded as shown below:
I also searched with his birth place Ciocănești (http://www.austriahungary.info/en/gazetteer1900/bukowina/kimpolung_-_kimpolung_-_campulung) but although a few Romanian names appear in the list, Giosan Alecsa is not there.
It is not uncommon that some names were missed in the http://kramerius.nkp.cz/kramerius/PShowPeriodical.do?id=23834&it= so I guess his name does not appear.

| Thank you very much for your answer.
Do you have any other idea where to search further for a genealogical purpose? Do tou know where the archive of the regiment is kept wright now?maybe a data base with the prisoners exists?

| I have no idea where you could search, I heard a request costing 35 euro can be placed with the Vienna Military Archives (http://oesta.gv.at/site/5001/default.aspx) but I don't know how it works nor if you have any chance to find any info.
Maybe other forum members have better ideas.
