Good evening!

I have the picture below with the unity where my great-grand father fought. I know he fought in the Austrian-Hungary army, in an unity maybe based in Cernauti. But I don't know abything else. Which type of army? Any other details that can help me in my research?

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 (Czokanestie - Czokaneszty) 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 K.u.k. Armee Verlustliste so I guess his name does not appear.

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. :unsure:

Maybe other forum members have better ideas. :)
