Myjava (Miava), Slovakia. Vienna, Austria. Modling, Austria.
Not my area at all so I don't think I can be helpful, but my sense is that there are robust civil records archives in some of those places.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Does anyone know how to contact the Machon Yuchsin in Boro Park?  The number I found online (718-435-4400) now belongs to a shipping company.

The Rebbe who founded it passed away in June 2020, things may have changed since then.

Anyone know when the 1950 census data will be released? I was supposed to be released in April but seems to have been delayed...

According to the 72-Year Rule," the National Archives releases census records to the general public 72 years after Census Day. "As a result, the 1950 census records will be released in April 2022." (https://www.census.gov/history/www/faqs/genealogy_faqs/when_will_census_records_be_available.html#:~:text=According%20to%20the%20%2272%2DYear,be%20released%20in%20April%202022.)

I wonder how long it will take to get indexed by familysearch and others. Doesn't look like there's much you can do with it now

I can't believe I'm only coming across this thread now... better late than never...

I spent a few years in my teens researching my family tree and was able to go back all the way to the Maharal on one side (which Geni then has a tree all the way back to creation), and a nice number of generations on the others. On my paternal side I got stuck after 7 generations and have not been able to go back any further. All we have is a first name and the town he lived in during his later years as Rav- no last name (mid 1700s) which makes things nearly impossible.

Geni (back then) and MyHeritage were both very useful in my research. What I found most helpful for holocaust era research was the USHMM in DC. I met with a researcher (funded by USHMM so no fees) there who opened a file for each of my 8 grandparents that lived through the war, and within a few months he had sent over a treasure trove of information. Deportation records, camp records, DP records, and immigration records, as well as eyewitness accounts. I also visited Yad Vashem in my quest but they were not helpful. This goes back almost 10 years now so things might be very different (and many institutions have digitized their files for the public to peruse).
I also found Yizkor books helpful to track spelling variations that might have been used in a particular town/region.

But you probably can mention the RMA, and the king of Poland.
