    Looking for info about Plesching. My family moved from there, to the US, around 1840. Their land was described as being near Linz, and on or near the Danube, and on the "north" side of the river...although, at that time they were Austrian nationals living in Czech (or Bohemia). The only map I have in the family history lists the town name as "Piessnig", but one "S" has been crossed out by hand. I am very interested to learn more about the area. Thanks for any help that you may provide.

    It is an Austrian city. Google may give you some info.

    Google does not offer much.
    I am curious to know if the area has more industrial development, factories...or if some of the farm lands still exist. I hope to locate the place were the family home stood...maybe it still stands. I can not find a message board, in English, that is about Austrian life...this one is much more friendly and fun!!!
