Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

#1
Hey everyone.

I need some help. I'm trying to find out about my Grandparents on my father's side, but I really have no idea where to begin.

The only information I really have about my father is his name, Michael (Mikhail?) Blazekovic and that he was born in Austria (although we were always told he was yugoslav). My mother, Carol Clark, met him while she was living in Australia between 1968 and 1971, where they got married and had my sister. Shortly after she was born, they came back to England, to Stevenage, but by the May of 1972 my mother and father separated; I was born the following November.

I tried phoning the Austrian Embassy to see how I'd go about obtaining a copy of his birth certificate and they pointed me to their website, which sadly wasn't particularly forthcoming with the information I was looking for.

So, does anyone have any pointers on how I could go about getting a copy of my father's birth certificate? Having done a quick google search it seems that each town in Austria has it's own records place, but as I don't know where in Austria he was born this could prove quite a long and tiresome search if I have to go from town to town!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alan
