It was common in Austria to have children out of wedlock. My mother did not but both my aunts
have born children before they got married.
My great grand mother had both her daughters out of wedlock, my grand mother Franziska Aloisia and an other daughter Helena.She did not have more children. My grandmother also had some of her children out of wedlock.
He is now 88 years old and the last alive of my mothers siblings. His mother died at is birth.
The cheerful little fellow Seppel was born 1927. He is the son of my mothers older sister Viktoria
