There is only one branch of the Lackner family in NZ. They are all descended from my grandfather, Friedrich Johann Anton Lackner, born 2 July 1882 in Rappersdorf (Rabensdorf?), Oberkaton, Austria. His father was apparently named Vincenz and mother was Lucia. He had a number of brothers and sisters, maybe 10 or so. He corresponded with a couple of sisters, according to my uncle, but names are not known. He ran away from home when about 13, and ended up in Akaroa, NZ, just before the First World War, possibly having come through the USA.
I am trying to track down any possible relatives in Austria, especially the names of his siblings, and would love to find the graves of his parents.
Can anyone help??
