The Beethoven Family Graves in Vienna

Unknown to the general public, there exist several graves in Vienna of descendants of Beethoven's brother Karl van Beethoven. My article "The Beethoven Family Graves in Vienna" has recently been published in The Beethoven Journal (Winter 2016, Vol. 31, No. 2). It deals with these neglected sites and also adds important genealogical information that is missing in Joseph Schmidt-Görg's 1964 book Beethoven: die Geschichte seiner Familie, such as the place and date of death of Beethoven's grand-nephew Louis von Hoven. A pdf of this article can be downloaded from academia.edu.
