I am searching for any information concerning the first wife of my great grand-father Osias Pressler.
And something about his parents.
Anyway, the entire translation should allow me to get any information that could help me to continue searching ancestors of Osias.

The marriage between Osias Pressler, assistant taylor in Vienna, 2nd [Borogh], Leopoldgasse 14, and Luise Pressler nee Herrmann, without occupation, celebrated according to the marriage registry of the Vienna Kehilah at Leopoldstadt according to the Jewish rite on 23 Jan. 1898, file number [unreadable], is declared as dissolved on the grounds of the handing over and acceptance of the get, which with regard to the simultaneous declarations of consent by both partners can be regarded as valid. Decree of the administration of Lower Austria of 25 Apr 1903, file number 40.45.1

Osias's first wife Chaja died in Lviv (Lwow) on 27 Feb 1892, because this is the date that Osias became a widower. The death certificate presented was dated later. You can try and get this document, however, the index for Lwow for this year is not yet online at the JRI Poland website.

Lipnitz is probably Lipnice nad Sázavou, although this town is in Bohemia, not Moravia, but near the border.

Alojse was alse called Luise, according to the divorce note.
