This resource provides historical business information from the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and its successor and partly neighbouring states. This includes the areas of modern Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania and many more until 1945 and more complete information restricted to Austria afterwards. Currently it covers 1812 to 2003. The backbone of the database are the Compass yearbooks and the Zentralblatt für die Eintragungen ins Handelsregister (commercial register entries). It gives access to depth-structured, digitised, full-text resources in the fields of Central European economic history and genealogy.
